Gas Full Service Restaurant

With its vintage feel and delicious fare, Gas climbs its way to the top of restaurant charts all over St. Augustine.

Best Cocktails The Ice Plant

This downtown vintage bar is a must try, not only because of the awesome 1930s atmosphere but also because of the amazing drinks.

Whether signature to the Ice Plant, such as the LA Dolce Vita, a cocktail made with St. Augustine Vodka, honeydew, lime, salers, and shishito pepper, or a florida twist on the classic Moscow Mule featuring St. Augustine Vodka, any choice at the Ice Plant is original and refreshing. 110 Riberia Street

Best Beer List JP Henley’s

With 70 beers on tap and a selection of over 120 bottled beers from around the world, it’s no surprise locals voted JP Henley’s has the best beer list.

Best Dessert

Crème de la Cocoa

Take a bite of any dessert from Crème de la Cocoa and you’ll be heralding Nils and Bailey Rowland as culinary geniuses. Any of the sweets – from their many chocolate confections to cakes for any occasion – wows both the taste buds and the eye. The husband and wife pair have been wowing St. Augustine so well that the dessert shop is moving from a shared space with DOS Coffee to their own location right across the street (grand opening later this summer!). The new location will have more space to bring the city decadent confectionery as well as classes in dessert creation for the public. The familial atmosphere and the mouthwatering pastries secure Crème de la Cocoa’s spot as St. Augustine’s Best Dessert. 300 San Marco Avenue

Best Latte

The Kookaburra

Have you ever had an Australian latte? If not, you should! The Kookaburra has a variety of delicious options for any coffee lover. Drinks include their signature Hot Aussie, a latte with homemade vanilla and cream (try it iced during the summer months!). With three different locations in St. Augustine, there are plenty of opportunities for you to hop on over and try the delicious Aussie cafe. Be sure to start a loyalty card... you’ll get that free coffee in no time. 24 Cathedral Place www.STAUGUSTINESOCIAL.com
