Description: What is the Summer Kitchen Cafe ! We are a casual quick service restaurant by day and a Flex Casual restaurant by Night (Full Service) So for Breakfast and lunch you will order & pay at the counter, then we will deliver your food to you & the number we give you. By night...5:00 PM we transform into a traditional full service restaurant with some of the best local seafood & farm items around (Kale salad!is the best). Note our dinner menu is not the same as our lunch menu so check both out before you get here. We started serving in Rosemary Beach in 1999 with a walk up window and no indoor seating. Today we have indoor seating, but most people opt to sit outside on the front deck or the side courtyard. We are proud to be part of the 30A songwriters festival in January each year. Hope you will come by and try at least one meal with us or like many do Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Wife and I had a quick bite for lunch here and we're very pleased. Wife's grilled chicken and portobello salad was fresh and full of flavor (honey balsamic dressing was perfect). I had the angus burger with a generous amount of blue cheese - well seasoned and cooked perfectly. Good prices and portions. Would definitely return.

Love eating lunch here after strolling down the streets and shopping. Good local, fresh food. Never had a bad meal here.

We spent a week in Rosemary Beach and I had read good reviews about this place so we tried it out a few times - breakfast, lunch, and dessert. For breakfasts and lunches you order at the counter and seat yourself. Most of the searing is outside. The staff for those two meals appeared removed and not overly friendly. Breakfast... More

Our first night down at the coast we ate here with our families. We had two toddlers under the age of 2 with us. As with all places in this area, we were told we had about a 30 minute wait, but we actually got in sooner than that, so that was nice. I had the seafood pasta and my... More

I got the avocado wrap, my girlfriend got the bacon and cheddar cheese omelet with onions. The atmosphere was great, I'd recommend getting the home style fries, because honestly I'd go back just to get them. The only downfall of the place is that it is a little expensive for what you get, but still reasonably priced given its location... More

This little cottage came up big on breakfast and service. The cheese omelet and home fries were great and the service was friendly and helpful. We also sat on the porch and had a front row seat for people watching at Rosemary. We'll be back!

Enjoyed a nice breakfast here during a morning rainstorm. Gets quite busy, so be prepared to wait a short while. Very convenient location. Keep up the good work!

The meals at Summer Kitchen are great with some really nice twists on traditional dishes and more importantly fresh ingredients. The mood of the place is beach-relaxed which makes you want to hang out a while. My only complaint is that in two visits I've found the counter staff to be less helpful than most. We have a family member... More

Not even a contest but this small, well run place with great food is the best in Rosemary Beach. They charge fair prices and everything ... including the coffee ... is very good. The staff works well as a team and has very good customer service. Our coffee order was forgotten and when we reminded the staff, they reacted promptly... More
