St. Augustine, Florida – Part One

leave a comment »

We arrived in St. Augustine before Noon on Thanksgiving Day. We were early for check-in at our bed and breakfast but our host was very obliging since our room was ready. The room was a quaint bedroom with attached bathroom on one side of the B&B. It was a bit on the tiny side but it was sufficient for our needs.

Since it was Thanksgiving, there were not a lot of options for food until later in the evening but we hadn’t really eaten any breakfast so it was time for something. Sadly, we should have waited until dinner.

We stopped at Sara’s Crepe Café mostly due to the wonderful aroma wafting out of the kitchen. It was an odd little café with seating outdoors and inside. We chose to eat inside based mainly on the fact that all those flies inside must have been on to something! Why we didn’t run I will never know. Even more curious is why we didn’t order the crepes; they smelled wonderful and watching the man make them was very entertaining. I cannot recommend avoiding this café enough!

After that disappointment, we wandered through the shops on St. George Street for a bit before returning to our room for a quick nap before the better restaurants opened for dinner.

We heard better things about Scarlett O’Hara’s so we headed there for beer and wings for dinner. Oh hey, I had forgotten about the Cowboys playing. The wings were hot, the beer was cold and the ‘Boys won the game; how ‘bout them Cowboys! Another walk after dinner to get our bearings for the rest of our trip and it was back to our room after a delicious dessert of coffee and a pumpkin cheesecake bar from Crucial Coffee.

Up next: our B&B and one of my favorite restaurants ever.

See you next week!
