The Back 40 Urban Cafe is one of the coziest and tastiest restaurants located here in St. Augustine.
If you’re craving real-deal comfort food like mama used to make, The Back 40 is the place to go.
The Back 40 Urban Cafe is located on South Dixie Highway, in a small house that has been renovated into a restaurant. It’s so quaint and welcoming, it feels like you’re having lunch at an old friend’s house. They can seat 85 people including an open-air back porch available and beautiful, local art decorates the walls.
Their menu has so many excellent options to choose from, ranging from Caribbean, Tex-Mex, to southern style cooking. It was pretty hard for me to choose, but ultimately, I decided on their Upside-Down Chicken Pot Pie.
Warning: Don’t order this if you’re not very hungry. It’s huge! Warm, delicious, and very, very filling. The golden-flaky crust at the bottom of the pie was my favorite part.
My boss ordered their Cuban Sandwich.
He said this was the best Cuban Sandwich he’s ever had in all of St. Augustine, which is saying something, because he has ordered a Cuban Sandwich at practically every restaurant in St. Augustine. Definitely a must-try!
The laid-back atmosphere at the Back 40 Cafe is so cozy and snug, you’re never going to want to leave. The staff is very warm and knowledgeable and the food is very inexpensive, especially for all of the food you get!
Overall, the food is outstanding, the service is extremely pleasant, and the atmosphere is relaxed.
I can’t wait to return to try their Vegetarian Chili Mac Bowl. It sounds incredible!
