Cousteau’s Waffle & Milkshake Bar Opens New Location

Things are getting a little sweeter in St. Augustine Beach.

Cousteau’s Waffle & Milkshake Bar is opening a second location to join its original store on Hypolita Street in St. Augustine.

“I was born and raised here, so I know the landscape of St. Augustine,” said owner Stephen DiMare. “Our downtown location was a great spot to start Cousteau’s, but it’s just such a natural fit for the beach. The concept was inspired by one of my favorite cult classic films, ‘The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.’ The beach, the ocean, our waffles, it’s just perfect. And with this new spot, folks enjoying the beach don’t need to cross the bridge to grab a Jaguar Shark.”

The Jaguar Shark, like all of Cousteau’s offerings, is named after a character from the film. It’s a Liege Waffle, topped with real maple syrup, bourbon whipped cream, candied pecans, and candied bacon.

“Our focus has always been providing fun and unique flavors that are anchored by quality, homemade ingredients,” DiMare said. “We love showcasing the local bounty and the culinary skill of our staff. Our new beach spot will offer the same great menu plus a few new offerings that will quickly become fan favorites with the same homegrown ethos as our downtown location.”
