Love the Soanish Bakery's empenadas and datil sauce. There are so many great places to eat in St Augustine. My family travels there every year and this is he one place we continue to visit repeatedly.

Try everything it is very good! Toni is a delight, and very very accommodating when possible.. The Soups, empinadas, and deserts are awesome, although on of my favorits is the salads, Fresh crisp and just the right size!

We stop here multiple times on our yearly trip to St. Augustine, and we are never disappointed. We usually get the Piccadilly combo, and it's a fantastic lunch! I also recommend the empanadas, and you will definitely want to try the fresh, melt-in-your-mouth cinnamon buns! If you are looking for a quick break from shopping and sight-seeing, definitely go here!!

Cannot say enough fabulous things about this cafe. For starters, it is adorable. They have the cutest picnic tables sitting in sand that you can eat at! The food is absolutely to die for! You MUST try the caramel apple turnover and the sweet potato turnover. We were stuffed from lunch but still made room for them, they were that... More

I was so looking forward to some nice baked goods, but all they had were beef or chicken empanadas with a cookie and a roll for lunch (the cookie and roll were good, but the empanadas was -blah). Shoulda gone somewhere else. (Sad face)

We stop here every trip to St. Augustine. The sweet potato turnover is my girlfriends favorite choice. The empanadas and soups are a great option as well. The prices are good for the area.

Cafe is occupying the original historic site. Kind of like a functioning museum. Food is authentic, fresh and delirious.

Interesting small garden cafe. Not much variety offered for snacks or lunch. What was sold was good but a bit pricey.

I'm sure some will really like this place, but it wasn't for us. We all had empanadas, which had a tough pie crust, filled with a pretty tasty filling, but the crust kinda spoiled it, really. The combo meal comes with a fresh bread roll, which was pretty good, a soda, and a cookie, which, to me, was the best... More

Me and my mom got the Cuban sandwich and the pan con lechen sandwich and wow! What an amazing sandwich. They make everything fresh and have great portions. They also have some homemade mustard and hot sauce outside for you to take. Seating is outdoors so it's a little hot. But this place was a great visit!
