Cousteau's also serve hand-spun milkshakes utilizing ingredients from waffle toppings. This waffle bar creates all of their ingredients in-house, providing a rich and fresh taste that you won't find anywhere else.
The eye-catching and mindblowing creations are every foodie's dream. The homemade milkshakes are a great pairing with any waffle entree.
According to a Trip Advisor user, "Cousteau's is amazing! On a five day stay in St. Augustine we visited this place 5 times. The milkshakes are thick, creamy, and wonderfully indulgent. The waffles are soft, sweet, and worth every penny and calorie."
Each Belgian waffle is made as a Liège style waffle which provides the thick, sweet, chewy and buttery taste. Homemade candy cinnamon apple, Bourbon and bacon are some of the toppings added to these waffle recipes.
Besides waffles, Cosuteau's offers Feather Waffles and Wonuts. The feather waffles are homemade egg-based waffles adorned with decadent toppings and made in the shape of a feather for an easy on-the-go snack.
This is a true dessert bar combining history and food to create an exceptional eating experience.
