When we talk about gourmet meals, the first thing that comes to mind is a meal that looks like it should be on display in an art museum, served at a Black Tie restaurant - and with the tiniest serving they could have possibly centered on a giant rectangular plate. There's actually a place where you can get gourmet meals in a relaxed setting - and it's an adorable little hut.
The Gourmet Hut in St. Augustine Florida is a unique little spot tucked away in the Historic District where you can walk St George Street and the surrounding streets. The restaurant is actually a hut, and you can eat your meal outside in the garden sun or indoors if you need to escape a quick Florida rainshower. They make their food fresh and home-made with an all gourmet style.
They serve breakfast lunch and dinner, with many options to choose from - with staples like omelets and panini's, as well as complex flavors like their Mint and Pomegranate Lamb. A fan favorite is their banana bread french toast, and it looks seriously heavenly. They do daily entree specials aside from their main menu as well, so don't forget to ask about the daily entrees!
Their food is out-of-this-world phenomenal, but the setting is different from your typical gourmet restaurant. The whole operation is done from the cutest little duo of huts. Next to The Gourmet Hut is their partner in crime, Crucial Coffee Cafe. They have some stellar breakfast pastries and will make art in your latte if you ask. The little coffee house can satisfy your sweet tooth or fuel your caffeine addiction - go ahead and treat yo-self and get something from both absolutely adorable places.
The whole place just has a cozy and homey garden vibe - they're even known to light the garden up at night with Fairylights that makes your night out at the hut feel magical. You can check out some super cute photo of The Gourmet Hut and Crucial Coffee Cafe below:
