If you are worrying that the combination of slithery sand and scrumptious food is nigh impossible to find, you couldn’t be more wrong. To stand corrected, all you need is a Cocoa Beach, FL, vacation.
Cocoa Beach on sunny Florida’s Space Coast takes food extremely seriously. You can expect anything from tiki shacks to fine dining here. Happy hours rule, and you won’t ever be disappointed in the cuisines found here.
Some Dishes ‘n Place You Just Can’t-Miss
You can start your food fiesta at the Fat Snook. This is where you can enjoy a blessed marriage of completely fresh seafood and local produce. You can wash it with fine wines or cocktails and savor the beach experience to the hilt.
If you are still hankering for gems of the sea, your next stop can be Jazzy’s Mainely Lobster. You can chow down on homemade clam chowder, fried green tomatoes, lobster rolls, and onion rings. The best part is the New England-style ambiance that makes you feel as if you are on the coast of Maine. The seafood here is astounding, and if you like the outdoors, you can enjoy eating to your heart’s content on their huge outdoor patio.
Crabs Ahoy! Crustaceans lovers need not fret as they have divine dishes waiting for them at Q’s Crackin’ Crab. Think snow crab and lobster platters, seafood boil, and fried seafood baskets… all slathered with a super tasty garlic butter sauce. It is a foodie’s heaven all the way through.
And then there is Tiny Turtle – a beautiful food joint, inside and out. Mindful of the ecology, they proudly practice sustainable food preparation methods while offering a mind-blowingly tasty cuisine infused with Caribbean and Puerto Rican flavors.
For those who love getting that early start to the day, there is Juice-N-Java Café. This is a hit with the locals who vouch for their bagel sandwiches, wraps, smoothies, and of course, the coffee!
Location, location, location… if you want to eat right on the beach, look no further than Sandbar Sports Grill. You will find all pub faves here, and you must try their fish tacos and Joey Wings – they are the stars in their mouth-watering menu.
Those with gluten intolerance don’t have to worry about returning with an empty stomach. For you, there are options galore at Florida’s fresh Grill. They offer fresh seafood, soups, and steaks as well.
