Wild Flower Cafe Cafe Atlantico
Wildflower Cafe Wednesday morning was looking pretty bleak for sales of websites or web advertising so Bill and I pulled into the parking lot of Wildflower Cafe - formerly the Garden Eatery. Our first impression was a good one. The wildflower is attractively decorated with a floral look and comfortable table arrangements. We were seated and brought menus promptly. The menus had a nice variety for breakfast including pancakes, waffles, french toast, crepes, German baked pancakes, omelets, and the usual eggs and bacon choices. I chose the Vermont French Toast which consisted of thick slices of challah bread soaked in batter, topped with sauteed bananas, cinnamon, sugar and pecans. I also had a side of "the Cheesiest Grits" which consisted of a bowl of grits topped with melted cheese. My companion had the Breakfast Burrito which is a soft tortilla filled with eggs, onions, peppers, sausage and cheese. Both of us were VERY happy with our choices and had more than we could easily eat. Our waitress was competent if not overly enthusiastic. We would definitely dine there again and will try their Sunday Brunch next. Wildwood Cafe is open 7:30 AM - 9:30 PM Tuesday through Saturday and 7:30 AM to 3:00 PM on Sunday. They are closed Monday. Wildflower Cafe, 4320 A1A South, St. Augustine FL, (904) 471-2691

Cafe Atlantico One Friday evening the hardworking StAugustineBeach.Net gal headed out for a bite. The original destination was swarming with people and we had no reservations. A friend had advised me to try Cafe Atlantico but I wasn't sure....I was in the mood for pasta. What if they didn't have pasta the way I liked it? I needn't have worried. The exterior of Cafe Atlantico gives no hint of the lovely elegance of the dining experience I enjoyed. There were two of us for dinner and we chose the Ravioli Atlantico and the Pollo Alla Griglia. Our helpful and knowledgeable waitress advised us of the specials and we quickly added the appetizer special - a tortellone with gorgonzola and ricotta cheese topped with white wine, sage and pine nuts sauce. Our dinner began with hot, crusty, delicious bread with olive oil and marinated olives. Then our appetizer came and we divided it with delight. The salads were a good mixture of greens and a house dressing with olive oil and herbs. More of the delicious bread came and then there were our meals. What a feast. The Ravioli Atlantico is a wonderful squid ink ravioli stuffed with lobster and drenched in a hearty sauce. My favorite food besides pasta is seafood so I was in heaven. My friend's Pollo Alla Griglia was a wonderfully prepared piece of chicken served with pasta and vegetables. Neither of us could finish our meals due to our unfortunate fondness for the bread they had served in advance but we certainly did not leave the remainder! We were completely delighted with Cafe Atlantico and will dine there again soon. Cafe Atlantico 647 A1A Beach Blvd., St. Augustine, FL (904) 471-7332.
