Our Story

Better Food, Better Mood.

The Back 40 Urban Café serves an eclectic mix of Tex-Mex, vegetarian and Caribbean fare. Located in St. Augustine, Florida, The Back 40 Urban Café is located in an old house built in 1897 which was converted to a restaurant over a decade ago. The "old house" fits perfectly in historic St. Augustine, the original European settlement in all of North America, settled over 450 years ago.

The Back 40 Urban Café is located at 40 South Dixie Highway. Our guests do not have to compete with parking spaces of downtown St. Augustine, as we have two large parking lots. We also have a beautiful and quaint patio that is fully shaded year round. The patio is also pet friendly.

We Take Pride in Our Atmosphere

The Back 40 Urban Café takes great pride in the homey, relaxed Florida atmosphere that we have created. We have some of the finest servers in all of Saint Augustine, and our delicious food is continually ranked tops in St. Augustine. Our meals are large portions, value priced, and made with fresh ingredients that are shipped in daily. We make all of our own dressings and salsa. Our desserts are made in house as well. We even have our own proprietary Datil Pepper Sauce found only in St. Johns County, Florida.
