What to Eat and Where to Eat in St. Augustine
Posted by: The Saint Augustine Beach House
St. Augustine’s cuisine has developed over the city’s 450+ year past, with culinary influences and traditions coming from Spain, Italy, Great Britain, Cuba and more. The result? One of the most interesting and developed culinary melting pots in Florida. Of course, there’s also the fresh seafood that’s caught daily in the area’s shallow coastal waters. Expect to have at least one phenomenal seafood dinner during your stay. Or, book a fishing charter and catch your own dinner.
Some of our favorite spots for dinner are Columbia Restaurant (Spanish and Cuban cuisine), Harry’s Seafood Bar & Grille (New Orleans-style seafood), and the Polish restaurant Gaufre’s and Goods. Don’t miss the pierogis. After dinner, head to The Hyppo for some of their homemade treats, including their famous champagne mango popsicle.
There are also a few wineries and distilleries in St. Augustine that are worth a visit. The renowned St. Augustine Distillery is housed in a former ice factory and is renowned for their fine vodka, rum, and whiskey. Nearby, you’ll find St. Augustine’s best winery: San Sebastian Winery. Have a tasting and walk to Whetstone Chocolates next door to try their creative selection of exquisite homemade chocolates.
We also offer a daily homemade Southern-style breakfast for our guests each morning and freshly baked sweet treats in the afternoon. All of our rooms
are equipped with kitchenettes, which is the perfect place to prepare snacks or a gourmet cheese plate as you toast the day with a glass of wine on your balcony overlooking the Atlantic.
