One of the great things about a smaller city like Daytona Beach Shores is the prevalence of local, family-owned or independent businesses and restaurants. Many big chains will not come to cities with lower populations thus allowing for the prosper of small businesses. Daytona Beach Shores has many great dining options from super casual breakfast joints, to delicious fresh seafood options, to high end cuisine. These great local restaurants not only offer creative and original dishes, but also are located just minutes from Ocean Vistas. Below I will showcase a few of the great dining options to enjoy when living at this luxury condo community.
Cracked Egg Diner – This local favorite serves up some of the best breakfast and lunch available along A1A in Daytona Beach Shores. Cracked Egg has a traditional menu of breakfast foods, sandwiches and burgers but it is their homemade apple fritters and corned beef hash that keep guests coming back for more. The portions and pricing are both quite reasonable making this diner a great option for Daytona Beach Shore residents.
Genovese’s Italian Cafe – Even living by the ocean in Daytona Beach Shores, you can’t eat seafood every night. This little restaurant is more than just a pizza shop, offering many great pasta dishes, soups and salads. They have healthy options that come without cheese or try their delicious vegetable pizza with whole wheat crust. Though they are close to most homes in Daytona Beach Shores, Genovese’s also delivers making them a convenient and appetizing option.
Crabby Joe’s Deck & Grill – This local seafood restaurant may be a little touristy, but who can pass up on the breathtaking, panoramic views of the Atlantic coastline from the Sunglow Pier. Enjoy the fresh catch, delicious sandwiches and many other favorites like Crabby’s crab cakes and buffalo “shark” ribs as you sit out over the water. You can also fish from the pier here and make a day of it while enjoying their fully-stocked bar.
Top of Daytona Restaurant – Another Daytona Beach Shores dining option with a spectacular view, Top of Daytona is an upscale restaurant that serves flavorful steaks and unique dishes. The pricing is more expensive than other options but the service and quality of food make up for it as this restaurant is perfect for special occasions or intimate evenings.
Cow Lick’s Homemade Ice Cream – No dining list would be complete without a little “just deserts”. While Cow Lick’s does offer burgers and sandwiches, it is their array of homemade ice cream flavors and options that bring in tourists and locals alike. There is a fun atmosphere with an arcade area too if you have children or grandchildren.
