Please remember that this post serves as a GUIDE to allergy-friendly restaurants in St. Augustine. Always remember to proactively call a restaurant to discuss your dietary and allergy needs to ensure your safety. Upon arrival, please discuss your dietary and allergy needs with your server. The following restaurants offer foods that are allergy friendly, but do not claim to be "allergy free."

Eating out is a staple activity on any vacation, when celebrating, or when you just can’t be bothered to deep dive through Pinterest to find a new recipe. Unfortunately, food allergies are on the rise. According to Food Allergy Research & Education, “researchers estimate that 32 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.6 million children under age 18. That’s one in thirteen children or roughly two in every classroom.”

St. Augustine is famous for providing locals and visitors, alike, with some of the best dining-out experiences in the United States! There are farm to table joints, food trucks, donut spots, and a thriving popsicle “scene.” Hopefully, this guide will alleviate some of the stress of eating out in St. Augustine with food allergies!
