Where To Eat on 30A
If you’ve read any of the other travel food guides on the blog, you’ll most likely know I’m a bit of a foodie. You’ll also see this if you follow me on Instagram. Personally, I tend to do at least one nice dinner with every trip we take. And the other ones I’ll go a bit more simplistic.
Perfect for brunch or a more budget-friendly option. We go here often as it’s closer to Grayton Beach and a bit more out of the chaos. Be sure to use Yelp to skip the line and join the waitlist earlier. Also, they have great mimosas and gluten-free options.
On my list to try but is super close to the Airbnb we stayed at. They have a great menu if you want something post-run or love an acai bowl.
I have a gluten sensitivity but I find I can tolerate their bread most of the time. They also have AMAZING homemade pop tarts if you don’t have any food allergies. I always sneak a bite when my friends order one.
This gets packed around 9am so be sure to go early. It’s closer to Red Bar but not so far you couldn’t bike if you wanted to. They also have good meals as well as a bar room that’s good for a chill dinner. It’s a local fave for a reason.
I’m obsessed with Amavida for a lot of reasons. But they have several locations (Seaside, Rosemary, St. Andrews). As well as, their coffee is served at a few local shops (Kith & Kin, Beachy Bean). However, I would 100% recommend them for their matcha and cold brew.
We popped in here after going for breakfast on our first full day. Then we sat in the square, drank our coffee, and enjoyed the sunshine after we snagged new books for the beach. It was divine.
A classic Seaside staple that offers quite a few breakfast options. Beignets, mimosas, avocado toast, grits a yaya, etc. They also currently have the most seating available with both patio and tent options.
While there are quite a few places for pizza along 30a, B+A’s will always have a place in my heart. They offer vegan cheese options as well as good gluten-free crust (a rarity). Typically, we will split some kind of pizza and maybe an appetizer if we’re feeling extra hungry. But you could do two slices and be good.
This is one of the few places that I feel like you’ll often find a good mix of locals and tourists. They have a great beach view up top if you’re looking to slow down for lunch and enjoy the scenery. They also make all of their juices from scratch. So if you love a pineapple mimosa, you’ll want to snag one here.
In general, I have mixed feelings about Pescado. But their lunch is absolutely one of my favorites and pretty much when I would tell everyone to go. The exception to this rule would be to snag a drink at the bar during sunset before dinner somewhere else. Nevertheless, their lunch is one of my regular favorites and something I try to recreate at home.
The caveat with going to Pescado is that they take reservations. So oftentimes, they will tell you they are booked up but there may be availability at the bar/outdoor seating. Honestly, this is where you want to sit if you’re going to Pescado because it’s the best view. Also, their lunch menu is the more affordable option. See the dinner section for my recommended alternative.
A new discovery that isn’t on 30a but is about 15 minutes away on the other side of 98. They have SO many food options. For those of you traveling with kids, this is a great pre-nap stop to let them run out their energy.
You can also snag some of the more famous local meals. Or a basic burger. Eater’s choice. The restaurant is on the water and has its own mini beach. We did this for dinner our first night but I would happily choose it for lunch as well.
