Fodor's Expert Review Café Alcazar

$$ St. Augustine Café

Housed in the magnificent Lightner Museum—formerly the luxurious Hotel Alcazar in its 1890s incarnation—this lovely little lunch spot sits where wealthy winter tourists once frolicked in the nation's largest indoor pool. Curried chicken salad, panini, and artichokes "Giovanni"—an addictive dish of baked artichokes with cheese and mushrooms on linguine—are among the many favorites here. The balconies that rise on all four sides are lined with intriguing stores, so it's easy for a relaxing lunch to expand into an entire afternoon of shopping pleasure. The food is good if slightly pricey, but it's beautifully presented in an atmosphere of elegance. Dinner is served on the first Friday of every month.
