The Perfect Pig opened in November by the former owners of the Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken Corporation. The transition into the gourmet market has been an easy one for this pork-centric stop located in Seagrove Beach. Dine inside, outside or at the bar and enjoy breakfast all day on Sundays. Although the ever-changing menu tends to favor the pig, there is certainly something for everyone, even vegetarians! Many of the dishes are served as small plates so this is an excellent choice if you enjoy “family-style” dining. This is a casual intimate setting. Don’t forget to pick up a few goodies in the market, we favor the Bourbon Dijon Mustard. Thank the lard!

A true Farm-to-Table establishment in Grayton Beach. The owners started as bread bakers selling at the farmers market until the demand reached a tipping point and they had to open a bakery. Today they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Eatery menu consists of sandwiches, salads, & soups all made with local produce and dairy. Chanticleer’s Bakery is sure to delight the senses. With everything from seasonal pies, to scones, fruit tarts, delectable breads and the infamous white-chocolate coconut cookies. This casual establishment is a delicious and fresh choice.
We’re drooling over the Grilled Cheese!

Excellent service, fresh food, in a casual family friendly atmosphere. Great for lunch on 30-A! The Catch, as the locals call it, is open for dinner as well. The food is great and so it the friendly local staff.
We recommend the Fish Tacos!

Located in Blue Mountain Beach next to Big Daddy’s Bike Shop, this delicious little delicacy offers freshly baked sweet and savory items of every variety. These bakers have mastered organic, gluten free, and vegetarian dishes. Dine in or carry out lunches, commission them to bake a cake for your next big event, or drop in and pick up one of their take-and-bake casseroles! It’s a delicious and healthy alternative to delivery.
We love the Vegetable Pot Pie!
