try the empanadas here and not at the Cuban bakery down farther on St. George street. It is hot, flaky and delicious. If you buy anything at the whetstone chocolate store or the Teddi ice cream store (all on the same street), you get 10% discount at the bakery and vice versa!

Picadillo, bread, pastries, cinnamon bun! The worst thing about this restaurant is that you get full before you are ready to stop nomming on the deliciousness. All homemade, not overly salted.

A nice small café right off George street in St Augustine serving Spanish type food. The empanadas were tasty a bit small for the price and the soups very homemade tasting good combo deals. STAY HUNGRY MY FRIENDS

The lady at the counter was so kind to her, and she gave her... More

While shopping on St. George Street, we always stop for lunch at the Spanish Bakery that's hidden away in a secluded courtyard in a tiny historic house. The delicious beef empanadas are our favorite and whatever the soup of the day happens to be make for a great lunch. The soup or stew comes with their warm home made bread... More

The Spanish Bakery is great ! The rolls, empanadas, Serrano ham & cheese sandwiches, and especially the lemon cookies, are excellent.
