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.

What a pleasant suprise to find this caliber of cuisine just steps away from our new beach condo! We chose this restaurant at random during an evening walk, and were so very pleased. The shrimp chowder special was obviously made from scratch, and had a nice little "kick" to it. We both had fresh, grilled local fish served with asparagus... More

My hubby and I are HUGE breakfast people. Our wedding reception was even breakfast themed... that being said, we've tried every breakfast/brunch spot on 30a, and Summer Kitchen is one of our favorites! We have enjoyed most everything on the breakfast menu, and continue to go back time and time again. We think they do omelettes better than anyone! Totally... More

I must admit, I am a regular here for lunch when I'm in town. The ingredients are always fresh and the finished lunches are wonderful. Try the "fish of the day" sandwich (usually mahi) and you won't be disappointed. In season, go for lunch at 11:00 so you can beat the crowd and enjoy an indoor, air conditioned table.

Four friends and I had lunch today at Summer Kitchen and it was very good!! It is a very small restaurant, you order your food at the counter, take a number and they bring it to you. I had the albacore tuna wrap with a side of pasta salad. One friend had the spicy chicken wrap and several others had... More

This place smelled heavenly but was packed to the seams. We waited a while but with two small kids it just wasn't ideal so we left. The restaurant is extremely small. Maybe 4-5 tables inside and a handful outside. In this Florida heat, sitting outside is not manageable mid-morning through evening. The food looked great and the staff seemed courteous.... More

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.

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
