Bakery Review - The Bunnery Bakery & Cafe, St. Augustine, Florida
The first night was Thanksgiving, so many shops were closed, but we came across what looked like a cute bakery on St. George St., and decided to stop there the next morning on our way to Miami.
Some mornings, there is a line before the bakery opens. Inside you can order from the menu (eggs, etc), get a drink (tea, mocha), or get a baked good. I have to admit that once I saw the baked goods I didn't have any desire to look at the regular menu. There were scones, croissants, danish, sticky buns, cinnamon buns, cookies, biscotti, and squares of various varieties.
We got a few croissants and a Lady Sarah scone to try. The croissants were among the best I've had - the perfect crunch as you bite into it, paired with the softness of the buttery layers inside. When we drove back home and stayed in St. Augustine again, you can bet we made a repeat trip to this bakery. I also purchased their cookie recipe cards that they make available and hope to try some of them soon.
I loved St. Augustine and it seems to have some interesting places to eat. The next time I go there, I might be convinced to branch out, but it will be hard to resist coming back to The Bunnery. They are open daily from 8 am - 6 pm.
