The Spanish Bakery in St. Augustine, FL is one of my favorite places to eat…ever! It’s somewhat of my own tradition to go there when we are in the area. And sometimes I will drag people to St. Augustine just to go here

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of St Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches, Florida. All opinions are 100% mine.
A couple of weeks ago, Jeff and I got to join my parents for a nice little weekend away. We went to one of my favorite cities, St. Augustine! Everything there is so lovely to look at and no matter where you turn you are at “the oldest…bar, schoolhouse, bathroom.”
Growing up, I was always there with my parents, there is so much to do as a child and a grownup.
We spent MANY weekends camping at Anastasia State Park. If you’re an outdoorsy person, a weekend camping trip with your other half can really show how well you and they can deal with things If you’re wanting play it safe and stay indoors, St. George Inn is in the perfect location of scouting out the city of St. Augustine. Most of the attractions and shops are literally right outside your door! No need for a car around there – you can go visit Flager College or Castillo de San Marcos and take a tour.
A stop I always have to make is the St. Augustine Lighthouse to climb the 219 steps to the top. Such an amazing view, from the bottom looking up or the top looking out toward the city.
The weekend we went, we spent most of Saturday walking around the city. I had requested that we go to what could be my all time favorite place to eat. It’s simply titled, The Spanish Bakery. There aren’t a ton of food choices, but what they have is AMAZING!!!! And I always make sure to leave with a loaf or two of bread. Yum! They are open from 9AM – 3PM and once they run out of a certain food for the day, that’s it. So make sure to get there early.
We also found a great bar called Rendezvous – soooo many different kinds of beers! A WHOLE 3 or 4 page menu dedicated to the beer!
During our walk Jeff decided to mess with my mom (she’s an easy target! seriously..Mom, I know you’re reading this and you’re agreeing right now!) and I LOVE this picture of them.
Now for some… more pictures. Of the fam.
All in all, St. Augustine is a wonderful place to spend a nice romantic weekend away. There is so much to do and if you don’t want to participate in all of the touristy things, the beach is always there!
