Cousteau's Waffle & Milkshake Bar

Cousteau's Waffle and Milkshake Bar is located at 15 Hypolita Street in the historic district.

After a Facebook post from Simply St Augustine noting that Bon Amie had closed and that Cousteau's had replaced the macaroon shop, I knew we needed to pay a visit. Like, NOW.

Waffle and Milkshake Bar? Genius.

Cousteau's is a cute little shop right off of Hypolita decorated with photos of the stores namesake on the walls. But based on the name of the menu offerings, I'm going to guess there's homage to The Life Aquatic in there...

It was a gorgeous 70 degree day, so we opted not to try the waffle selection, but instead went with a hand-dipped milkshake. The Stevesie to be exactly. Vanilla ice cream hand dipped with fresh made chocolate chip cookie dough. We could have added extra toppings, but wanted to stick with the basics to form our baseline.

Here's a tip: Wear a red beanie and you get 10% off! Even better if you're not a beanie fan, take one of their repeat customer cards. Buy 8 waffles or milkshakes and get the 9th one free!
