Bakery Review - The Bunnery Bakery & Cafe, St. Augustine, Florida

The Bunnery Bakery & Cafe
Originally uploaded by watchjennybake.
I just got back from a cruise, which was a nice way to spend what would otherwise be a very cold week in December. We decided to drive to Miami instead of fly since we had not seen much of Florida, which put us in St. Augustine the first night.

Window of cooling treats
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.

Waiting Line
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.

Scone and croissants
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.

I love the same type of baked goods and I also love cruising. It sounds like we're on the same wave length.

Thanks for posting this! I'm just over an hour or so away from St. Augustine. It's a really cute place to spend a day...I'll have to look for this bakery next time we go.

I used to work here back in 2000 and had the best time of my life! Now I live in Boston and miss the Bunnery very much! Pam and George Cross are the best!

The bran muffins are super and the square biscuits are delightful.
