St. Augustine’s Uptown Scratch Kitchen

Downtown St. Augustine Restaurants – Uptown Scratch Kitchen

In a parking lot on San Marco Avenue near DOS Coffee and Wine lays Uptown Scratch Kitchen, an innovative food truck capitalizing on the nation’s latest culinary craze of food trucks that serve fresh food made from locally-sourced ingredients.

Uptown Scratch Kitchen prides itself on putting a new twist on classic American dishes like bacon cheddar sliders with grass-fed beef and onion confit, as well as shrimp tacos with cumin crema, napa slaw, crispy plantains, and a lime and cilantro vinaigrette. The traveling Saint Augustine restaurant is also famous for its hand-cut garlic rosemary fries and its homemade spice ketchup. For those with dietary restrictions or preferences, there are also vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options available for your palate’s pleasure.

With a seasonal menu that rotates periodically every few months or so, Uptown Scratch Kitchen’s menu never feels dull or boring, and always contains the highest-quality local ingredients from nearby farms and food purveyors. The food truck is so popular among Saint Augustine restaurants that many of its best dishes sell out early in the day, but worry not—if you find yourself wanting to try one of their delectable dishes while you’re out and about, you can call ahead and arrange to have your order set aside until you can come and get it!

Before or after your meal at one of the best St. Augustine restaurants, you can explore St. Augustine’s uptown district and see sights like the Old Jail, the Ponce de Leon Fountain of Youth, and Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum!
