Good experience but not the best.

We have been here three times over the past three years and I do not think we will be going back. We went for lunch and as this is right on a public beach and surrounded by the Southernmost Inn, Hotel, Mansion, etc is is full of guests from the places, and their children. It is an open cafe... read more

since I live in MD and the weather has been crazy cold.....I just needed a beach day. This was the perfect little beach one block away from the famous Southernmost Point buoy. Great drinks and rent-able lounge chairs to use. Didn't eat there, just had drinks, but the Rum Punch was very good. Its located at the end of Duvall... More

We ate 3 breakfasts and 2 dinners here. Part of the reason was because it was close to our hotel (The Reach) and the other part was the food was very good (& they are right on the beach!) Great Meals: Conch Chowder Short Rib Sliders The special one night was braised Short Ribs – fantastic! Breakfast: Southernmost toast with... More

Very good food for both breakfast and lunch. French toast for breakfast was very good; fish sandwich at lunch also good. Can't beat the view! The only issue was that I asked for a pina colada and got a cup of premixed drink. Was expecting something freshly made. Ask for a frozen drink instead. Otherwise good.

Breakfast was satisfactory. I preferred the basic eggs and bacon rather than the elaborate sounding concoctions. My daughter had eggs benedict which she enjoyed. Fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juices were a treat. The best part is the location on the beach right near the southernmost spot in the U.S.

Looking for good food and a great view? Southernmost Beach Cafe offers both. Expect to wait up to 30 minutes, but enjoy the time on the beach and then have a good meal inside with a view of the beach. Many choices of fresh fish on the menu and good cold beer or bar drinks to wash them down! If... More

This was our second choice when our first had no availability and we were tired from walking. The menu was expensive for a casual beach environment. The food was overall good, but the portions were on the small side. The service was great but it is not in a prime location, so make sure you have a reservation if you... More

Beachside, views to make your vacation, and diverse menu to please everyone in my eccentric party. Best of all, right across from the Butterfly Conservatory, and away from the craziness of Duvall St.
