I have been an owner at the discovery beach resort since it was built, so I have seen the cafe change hands over the years in some cases it has gone from bad to worse. We were surprised this year food good great ribs, grouper sandwhich excellent. Service excellent. Trina our waitress really good.

This place is very casual and friendly. The fresh fish is out of sight. I had the Grouper for $15.95 and it was fantastic. Grilled with a special rub that is like nothing I ever tasted. The staff, Sarah and Michelle are the best. They cannot do enough for us. We have been here several times in the past two... More

The cafe/restaurant was a great place to eat!! The food was prepared as you ordered. Fresh fish was a hit with my husband! Great wait service and we enjoyed the decor at the place as well.

Discovery Beach Cafe is hard to find since it is in a Time-share condo building, but it's well worth looking for. And Lisa makes a GREAT dirty... More

After an exhausting flight to Orlando on a South-Western 737, where we were crammed in like sardines, and a drive in heavy traffic to Cocoa Beach, I just wanted to "land", have a decent meal and a drink, or two, before getting some real sleep. Luckily for me, my aunt Pat turned me onto Dino's Lounge. At first, I was... More
