We love Cuban sandwiches and we have to say that these were the best sandwiches ever! Recommend this to everyone! Will definitely go back next time we are in St Augustine!

This place is a bit difficult to find but well worth seeking out. The empanadas are excellent and the bread wrapped sausages are wonderful for a quick bite. Don't forget their cookies and unusual yet tasty soups.

Just off the beaten path is this little cafe that offers really good food. They also offer freshly made soup and pastries. We love eating here when in the downtown area.

Chicken empanada today was good. The pastries looked amazing but did not try any. Nice area outside cafe with covered picnic tables to eat. Near public restrooms and don’t forget this cafe is located behind the Whetstone Chocolate shop.

My wife's family is from Argentina. So when we saw empanadas on the menu, we had to go. We loved their chicken empanadas and their tortellini salad.

I think the dish you are referring to is called picadillo. It's like a chili with no beans served over rice. This has been one of their staples for years.
