Located in Miramar Beach, Bad Ass Coffee is also a 2022 Perfect in South Walton Award winner. The high quality of their coffee traces all the way back to their origins in Hawaii, as they still source from multi-generational farms there.
Owned by a young couple, 2 Birds Coffee + Café in Seascape serves up a variety of coffees and classic espresso drinks to go with really tasty breakfast and lunch. Filled with natural light, this pleasant café is a feast for all the senses.
Included on the menu at Gulf Place’s Sunrise Coffee Co. are many sweet treats, including a heavenly sampling from the famous Charlie’s Donuts. These provide a perfect complement to your choice of coffees, cocktails and smoothies.
Attached to Coastside 30A in Seagrove, Beachy Bean Coffee Co. is an ideal hideaway for discovering some “me time.” With a peaceful deck overlooking Eastern Lake, you can sip your coffee while watching commuters pass by on their kayaks and stand-up paddleboards.
Located right next to a campground in Santa Rosa Beach, Kith & Kin 30A is a cozy little place to find some quiet peace and warm service. Choose from a nice selection of coffee, expresso, chai tea and even beer.
Black Bear Bread Co. has locations in Grayton Beach, Seaside and on Grand Boulevard in Miramar Beach. After getting just one taste, customers of all species are loyal to their baked goods. After all, they got their name when some local bears were caught noshing on test bread that had been left outside.
In the historic heart of DeFuniak Springs, Perla Baking Co. creates fresh-made breads, croissants and pastries that you’ll dream about all day. These pair nicely with a selection of organic coffees and teas provided by their friends over at Amavida.
