Sunset Bay Cafe

Sunset Bay Cafe is a casual dining spot overlooking the Choctawhatchee Bay in Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. The newly renovated restaurant features million dollar views, locally sourced, fresh ingredients in their seasonal menus, along with exceptional customer service to match. Enjoy chef inspired twists on classic dishes in a setting perfect for breakfast, lunch, and cocktails.

“We wanted to have a mix of familiar items as well as creative takes on the classics,” says owner Bryce Jarvis. 

Sunset Bay’s breakfast menu is overflowing with all the good stuff…carbs. And it's no wonder. Bryce's wife Miranda also operates Holy Cakes out of the restaurant, preparing delicious baked good confections on the spot as well as made to order cakes and treats for special occasions. 

Cinnamon rolls, French toast, pancakes and waffles will help you get your morning pastry fix. If you’re more into proteins for breakfast, you can create your own omelet or bite into a benedict. If you want to have your cake and eat it too, then enjoy the best of both worlds with chicken and waffles or a breakfast croissant stacked high with all five food groups.

Lunch plates at Sunset Bay Cafe come from both land and sea and no place at the beach would be complete without their take on Shrimp and Grits. (Sunset Bay Cafe serves theirs with a poached egg.) Enjoy salads and sandwiches, like the Red Snapper on a croissant kept simple with lettuce, tomato, onion and Jerked remoulade. Handhelds are always a good idea, and you can't go wrong with fresh fish tacos. 

During Summer season, come out for dinner on the bay. Fine wines and Pecan Crusted Goat Cheese leads you into a menu full of creative takes on classic dishes. Grilled Salmon is seared with Herbs de Provence and served alongside fingerling potatoes and asparagus with a rosemary balsamic glaze. While beer braised pork belly is served fork tender with apple raisin chutney and micro greens for the sweet & savory win.

Sunset Bay Cafe also enjoys catering events. The Tiki Bar keeps the fun going daily from noon to sunset, with live music and creative cocktails on Friday and Saturday nights during the summer months. Check out their Facebook Events tab for details.
