About
We originally opened as a "Food Truck Style" restaurant as we were just a kitchen with a walk up window. Over the past 8 years we have evolved into a full service restaurant and our newest feature is a full liquor bar now available for cocktails with our delicious Caribbean Fusion cuisine! We are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as brunch on the weekends. We have inside dining and covered outside dining under our Tiki Huts! We offer TOGO orders in ocean friendly packaging. Curbside pickup available! We can't wait for you to dine with us to taste what many nationwide crave and can't stop talking about!

Tiny Turtle is the perfect restaurant for anyone looking for a one-of-a-kind, hole-in-the-wall experience! The food is generously portioned with unique flavors. I’d visit weekly if I lived in the area.

From the moment we arrived the experience was terrific. We were welcomed in with a big smile. We sat outside since we had our dog with us. We were there for breakfast, and had the Build a Omelet, and the Wake Up Burrito. Everything was...fresh, and tasted wonderful. We will be back, and this will become a regular go to. One block from the beach. Plenty of parking.More

The Tiny Turtle is the best. I had guests visiting from out of town and this was the number one restaurant I had to take them to. The service is friendly and always informative if you have questions. The food is outstanding. The PB&J Pork...Sliders are fantastic. We all had different menu items and sampled the Grilled Mahi BLT and the Sofrito Burrito as well as the Pork Sliders. Everything was fresh and tasted amazing. You will not be disappointed when you visit The Tiny Turtle.More

Ordered takeout on a Monday night. When I went in to get the food, looked like there were a lot of locals there that knew this place was great. Everyone was super nice when I picked up the food and it tasted amazing! I ordered...the island grill tacos with chicken, my husband ordered the cubanito sandwich, and my 10 year old ordered the caribbean hot dog. Also have to try the maduros! We will definitely be going back.More

We found this place last summer on vacation I couldn’t wait to get back again this year. But this year was even better than last year! We went in one evening when two of their servers had called in and the staff was working extra...hard to serve everyone. They kept a positive attitude and kept on moving, sure it might’ve taken a few extra minutes but it was worth it. They do an amazing job at customer service and the food is absolutely delicious. Slow roasted pork and chicken in a sandwich is out of this world. There wasn’t a bite left on anyone’s plate. We will be back… Maybe this week.More

Always excellent everything at The Tiny Turtle in Cocoa Beach. Sat outside with my pups. Enjoyed food off the brunch menu, The Sunrise Bowl that you build, side of potato hash and bacon, perfect late lunch. Love that they keep their outside seating area clean...for the next visitor that brings their pup, no left over food droppings. BONUS. Service amazing and just an overal amazing restaurant that practices Ocean Awareness. One of my GO TO’s as J haven’t had a bad meal yet. Consistency!More

Tiny Turtle deserves five out of five stars! We enjoyed a made-from-scratch breakfast/brunch. Food was delicious - breakfast burrito and guacamole boat with sautéed veggies on top. Handmade Bloody Mary and mimosa with fresh squeezed OJ topped off our morning.

Best breakfast in town. We had the breakfast bowl and tropical pancakes and both were unbelievably good. Everything was cooked perfectly. The staff were super nice and the place very clean.

We heard great thing about this place, however when we went we were told to find our own seat. We sat for twenty minutes without anyone bringing us a menu or drinks. We went up to ask and they said they would be right there,...waited ten more minutes and finally left. It wasn’t too busy and we saw plenty of wait staff who could have helped. Disappointing!More

We found this place by accident, had been at Kennedy space centre all day and decided to take a drive down to cocoa beach for a bite to eat. Everywhere we tried along the beach was full with an hour minimum wait time. Used Google...search out of desperation and it guided us here. Id doesn't look much from the outside, but we got a warm welcome when we stepped inside. It wasn't overly busy but there were still plenty of people inside and lots of seating available. We were guided out to a nice area in the back, comfortable seats and a few things to entertain the kids. Food was tasty and fresh and service was good and quick, despite the staff being busy. We didn't have to ask for refills on our drinks as the girl checked in with us regularly. We would definitely recommend the tiny turtle for a laid back atmosphere. If we are ever in the area again we would be happy to eat here. One small thing was the live music from a nearby bar drowned out the music being played by this place. But thats probably being overly picky.More

Gotta love a happy accident! Thanks for sharing your experience! Sorry for the neighbor intrusion on our vibe. We do have our own live music at times. Maybe you'll be able to catch that sometime.

For a party that size you definitely need to talk to them ahead of time as to when you hope to come and if it's a possibility to accommodate your party at that time..
