About Us

It all began with a husband and wife team, a sweet tooth, and a decline in the boat building industry.  This decline during the late 1980s forced George and Pam Cross to explore an additional means to support their family.  Loving sweet treats they opened a tiny one-room bakery across from Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine’s Old Spanish fort, in November of 1989.  There they sold made-from-scratch cinnamon rolls, pecan sticky buns, cookies, brownies, and great coffee.  These delicious delights were an immediate success causing the shop to sell out its very first weekend.  As demand for these mouth-watering recipes increased it caused George to stop working for a local boat building company and join Pam working full time at The Bunnery.

Over the years, The Bunnery’s location has moved into larger sites; added soup, sandwiches, and salads to its menu, and Café to its name.  The Bunnery Bakery & Café’s current location, 121 St. George Street, allowed for the addition of a full breakfast menu and dramatically expanded lunch offerings.

Twenty-two years and three locations later, Pam and George and their dedicated team still make the baked goods from scratch using the best available ingredients.  On weekends Pam can be seen welcoming guests and helping them make the tough choices on what to choose from the bakery case.  George can be found in the kitchen, helping prepare and serve made to order breakfast and lunch.  The Bunnery Bakery & Café is open seven days a week, some 360 days a year.

Meet George . . .

When George was 12-years-old his mother told him if he ever wanted to see another cookie, he'd better learn to make them.  That's just what he did.  Little did he know that his natural talent in this area would benefit him in the future.
