Sonny Richards is still serving up local favorites from a menu of sandwiches and sweets at the eatery’s new Santa Fe Boulevard location.

HIGH SPRINGS – After nearly 12 years of operating out of a building near the railroad tracks, a familiar eatery has moved. The Station Bakery & Cafe moved to their new location at 201 Santa Fe Boulevard in early May.

The Station first opened its doors in 2001, after Sonny and Suzanne Richards, along with their daughter, Laura Janicki, came across the train station situated on Railroad Avenue. The family decided that it would be the ideal place to open a bakery.

As a family-run business, they came up with each of the menu items and soon became known for their assortment of sandwiches, cakes and éclairs.

Although they are no longer located in a train station, The Station will keep their name and the train theme. Railroad lanterns hang from the ceiling and model trains decorate the counter.

“We are still in the process of putting up the train pictures,” Janicki said.

The new location provides the bakery with a larger kitchen and double the seating. The family has also hired two new employees to help with the shop.

Janicki said that the new place is in a more convenient location for customers and that it provides a great opportunity for business.
