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.

Had an amazing burger for Lunch! I would recommend this place. Always great service and consistently good food. If you get a chance, try one of their cinnamon rolls!

We were leaving the 30-A area and had some time to kill so we drove over to Rosemary Beach to walk around a bit. We had some time for lunch so we stopped in at the Summer Kitchen and we weren't disappointed. Three of us got wraps and we all thought they were tasty. One of us ordered a salad... More

We stopped here for breakfast our last morning in Florida. Everyone ordered the French toast. It was made with French bread slices (I think) and had a hint of cinnamon and orange. The bread was light as air and the edges were perfectly crispy. My mom is not a fan of eggs unless they are very (very) done and we... More

We came here while visiting rosemary beach and decided to try this place for breakfast since the reviews from here were so positive. What a mistake!!!! This is a walk up and order place which is not a big deal but you order and pay first and they ask for the tip upfront which is so weird since we had... More

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
