Downtown restaurant turns into bar alternative at night

Isabella Pazmino|

For the first time, The Bunnery, a bakery and cafe on St. George Street, is serving until 9 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Owner Pamela Cross said The Bunnery is an alternative to a bar. According to Cross, there is no need for alcohol when a full espresso bar is available.

The bakery and cafe offers fresh cookies, cakes and croissants.

“All of our cookies are made from scratch,” Cross said.  “Everything is made in the kitchen. We make the biscuits, gravy, even our jelly.”

Friday through Sunday, customers can choose a variety of options from the dinner menu. Along with fresh pastries, the bakery and cafe offers one dinner special. Free Wi-Fi is also available.

During the night, from time to time, live performances from local St. Augustine residents take place.

“We’ve had musical groups and singles on acoustic guitars.” Cross said. “Students can study in a quiet and safe environment.”

Students can enjoy fresh pastries and sandwiches while studying and receive a 10 percent discount, Cross said.

The Bunnery offers quality and affordable food, Cross said. The quality of her food is recognized in other locations outside of the city.

“We have people coming all the way from Jacksonville.”

For those regular customers who enjoy the bakery’s pastries and sandwiches, Cross said she may open the bakery until 9 p.m. every day for the holidays.
