St. Augustine | Columbia Restaurant

One of the oldest and finest restaurants founded by a Cuban immigrant is the Columbia Restaurant. This is definitely another place to go when you're visiting the Historic Town in St. Augustine. Since the town is (back then) Spanish based, much of the food is very Spanish influenced then, combined with Cuban cuisine too. 

Get ready for a bit of food galore edit. 

Sangria in the making 

Estrella Damm - Inedit ($14.95)
Maduro Brown Ale ($5.95)
Columbia's Original "1905" Salad 
Gambas "Al Ajillo"
Black Bean Cakes
Ybor City Devil Crab Croquette
Tortilla Gallega
Mussels y Chorizo "Andres"
Black Beans
Paella "Espanola"

White Chocolate Bread Pudding
Crema Catalana 
Flan's always a must try. 
Sweet and creamy. I love a good traditional one and I've tried making one myself and to have it baked without any cavity holes does take skill!  

Cafe con Leche 
To round the lunch off, you can't miss out on COFFEE! I got caught in action taking this photo for dessert time. 

Definitely check out their shop! We ended up getting a small paella pan for ourselves. Plenty of other traditional pantry items very local to the Spanish culture too. Wouldn't mind checking out the lovely smell of the cigar that was on display.
