All you can eat St. Augustine shrimp . . . Who can resist that? It was always a special treat to eat out at Colley’s when we were kids.

Colley’s is gone, but the building survives. Today Blackfly serves seafood to residents and visitors.

  1. Love your website with the old pictures. I also remember Pappy’s restaurant. They were know for their fried shrimp amd big quart glasses of tea.
    I also saw the one of the Matanzas Theater. I use to go there growing up. I think it cost % cents to get in for kids. Distant drums had a local kid in the movie playing an Indian. I think it was Sidney Capo. Not sure of the first name but is was definately Capo.
    I’m following you on twitter. Thanks!
