Description

Cervantes Spanish Restaurant was one of the first Spanish restaurants to come to Orlando, Florida. It was run by Paul Vines and his wife, Annie Vines, and their business partner, C. Menendez. The restaurant sat at 19 East Church Street and stayed at that location for nearly 20 years. The restaurant had moved to that location in 1937 and remained there until the mid-1950s, when it was replaced by J & G Fine Foods, owned by a Gladys Barnett. This lot, as well as the rest of the block, was later replaced by the CNA Tower and Barnett Plaza.
