The Spanish Bakery of St. Augustine – Review

Note: menu offerings and prices may vary.

Fresh baked bread in loaves or rounds and homemade empenadas baked in a stone hearth oven, spicy sausage wrapped in a flaky crust… need I say more?

The Spanish Bakery has been in business for more nearly 30 years, according to the small chalkboard that hangs from the stone building known as the Salcedo Kitchen. I reckon I’ve been coming here for at least 10 of those years, and I’ve never been disappointed, except when they run out of bread around 2 pm or when it rains, because they only have 2 picnic tables under cover. Of course, you can sit at one of the picnic tables under a tree and stay relatively dry if it’s not a downpour.

Try an empanada stuffed with spicy beef and a bowl of picadillo over rice. If you’re really hungry, add a smoked sausage roll. Like it spicy but want it hot? Then add a small Datil Do It pepper sauce, made locally and marketed nationwide. And no meal is complete without a loaf or round of that melt-in-your-mouth bread. The Kitchen also serves up cookies and a soup of the day.

Patience is a virtue on busy days, as the line can get quite long and the Kitchen’s quarters are cramped. The Kitchen is a well loved stop for school groups and other large parties who call ahead. But rest assured, the wait is well worth it. If you don’t like lines, browse in the Whetstone Chocolate store just as you enter the grounds and sample creamy fudge and sugary pralines. That should get your appetite started!

The Spanish Bakery is open 7 days, usually between the hours of 10:30 am to 3:00 pm. It is located about 100 yards down from the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse at 42-1/2 St. George Street.
