Everyone knows that being on a college budget is hard, especially in a tourist-dominated town. However, these seven places offer the best bang for your buck in St. Augustine with options from breakfast to dessert, all under $10.
Maple Street Biscuit Company
Maple Street Biscuit Company, 39 Cordova St., offers coffee, fresh biscuits and chicken for a reasonable price. The Five is a flaky biscuit with chicken, pecanwood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese and sausage gravy. This meal is $9.59 and is definitely a shareable option.
The Spanish Bakery and Café
The Spanish Bakery, 42 ½ St. George St, is a hidden gem right in our backyard. Not only do locals and Flagler students get a 10 percent discount, but they also have an entrée combo deal. In this deal, you can get an entrée (an empanada, picadillo, soup, or salad), a freshly made bread roll or chips, a cookie and a soda all for $7.42. While not necessarily shareable, it is still delicious and all homemade.
Pizzalley’s, 117 St. George St., is a great place for both pizza and Italian food. There is a 10 percent discount for Flagler students and the price for a piece of specialty pizza (not your plain cheese and pepperoni) and a drink is $5.75.
South-A-Philly Steaks and Hoagies
South-A-Philly, 1 King St., is right next to the bayfront. They specialize in subs but are known for their Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. The Cheesesteak is a sandwich with onions and your choice of cheese (American, Swiss, or Cheese Wiz) and is only $8.51. They also have their own punch card where you buy 10 hoagies and then get one free.
A1A Burrito Works Taco Shop
Taco Shop, 114 St. George St., is a great place to go for any kind of Mexican food. The nachos are topped with “The Works” – cheese, sour cream, cilantro, lettuce, onion, salsa, and lime – and is about $9.50. It’s definitely enough to share with two, maybe even three, friends.
Peace Pie, 8 Aviles St., is a dessert shop that offers ice cream sandwiches with a layer of pie filling. Every sandwich is $6 and can definitely be shared between two people. They also have a punch card where you buy 10 ice cream sandwiches and get one free.
Cousteau’s Waffle and Milkshake Bar
Cousteau’s, 15 Hypolita St., offers a variety of milkshakes and waffles. The milkshake pictured here is called the Stevesie- a vanilla milkshake with a homemade cookie dough ganache. The waffle is called a feather waffle and comes regular or dipped in white or dark chocolate. They also have a 10 percent discount for Flagler students, making the total for these two desserts $9.10. They also offer a punch card where you buy eight waffles or milkshakes and get the next one free.
