We went to that place twice on Thursday and Friday before Easter. Atmosphere is just great, same with the food. My wife and I spent some time stolling the beach while our daughter sat inside to continue her reading for university. Absolute treasure that we found on Flagler Beach. Went back there the following day from Jacksonville for Lunch and another walk on the beach.
Will definitely come back to that place.
Okay, I know. I have rated the By the Sea Cafe before. But get ready to be be absolutely astonished! Tonight was the first Dinner offering. Wednesday and Thursday open 4PM to 9PM and Friday and Saturday 4 PM to 10PM. The best part is that they are also doing the same daytime fare, (Thank God!)
The wife and I had the half rack of Baby Back ribs with the black-eyed peas & rice w/a fresh salad! Just before the Dinner was served they brought out a brown small loaf of bread. We expected what you would get somewhere else. I should have known better. Kat had the bread specially baked just for the Cafe. Honey Wheat Bread all warm with melted butter, OMG! The rib meat fell off our forks and tasted exactly as if they had been smoked all day. That is because they were smoked all day!
Tell y'all what, I'm calling Guy Fieri and I am going to try my best to get him to do a show at this place. Folks, it's just that good. They have steaks, kabobs and lots more. There is only one bad thing to say about this place. The food is so good you want to act like you are at home and ask Momma for seconds! Oh and yes, there was homemade, real homemade, pies! Not gonna tell you what kind, you'll just have to go there to see for yourself. I wish I had six stars to give them. One more thing, this being the first night open at night the place was packed. They had done no advertising either. Word of mouth from satisfied friends says a lot about a place and the people who make it happen, (Not customers-you really are friends there) . See you at the Cafe by The Sea then?
There is a mistake on the page and as good as this place is please make a note of this. They do in fact accept credit cards, not American Express though. Kat just introduced a new sandwich, mahi mahi! My God is it good! I cannot think of anything She makes that is bad. And no, I am not a owner, relative, or a paid person. I am just a very lucky person that my wife and I stumbled into this place a few years back. By the Sea, eating mahi mahi, watching the Dolphins teach their young how to be a Dolphin! What may I ask could be better than that? Well okay, right, If Jen was not expecting might help her "Chemical induced attitude". Just pulling her chain folks, Jen is the best! There is not one person there that is not committed to making your experience there the best you have ever had, with food anyway! LOL
Absolutely the best! We travel from Daytona Beach and pass many other places but nothing stops us, we are going to the Cafe!
Read about it here, tried it, go back at least every 8-10 days or so. We love it! Just glad it's not closer or I'd weigh 400 lbs.
Burgers, reubens, omelets, home fries, ice-t all the best! Counting the days till I go back and try the Bar-b-que sandwich. Just ate there today and have not talked myself (or wife) out of going back for breakfast tomorrow.
Something about the friendliness (not phony, these are the real deal people), atmosphere, and the view of the ocean that screams "OMELETS and HOMEFRIES". (breakfast served from open to close)
Genuine gratitude for your business is a rare find in an ocean resort eatery. Most are "we got your money, probably never see you again, bye-bye.......NEXT!
I'm trying to save you a year and a half search (which I had) for a great place to eat, w/ great people.
I actually give the place 6+ stars.
Okay, we have been going here to have Kat cook our breakfast for the past year. We go there about three or four times a week. We travel from the "W" section of Palm Coast nearest to Palm Cost parkway so that in itself has to let you know this place is tops! They won the best in family resturants and best breakfast, I believe. It is old Florida so do not expect blazing fast food! It is a place to kick back and enjoy the Ocean views. You can still smoke outside on the back patio or in the front with full view of the Atlantic. If you are looking for NY speed and frenzy, you will not find it here. The owner, (Kat) is a Florida born citizen. All the food there is cooked, not thawed out! And none of that "cooked last night bacon and reheated in the morning" stuff either. The only bad thing about The By The Sea Cafe is that it could become so popular Kat would need to expand. But that would perhaps not be a problem because it is Kat and her attention to her customers that makes the differences. And do not forget to get one of the cards. They have ten punches on them and when full, (The card, not you!) you get a free breakfast. I guess you can pretty tell we love the place. We are not relatives or nor do have a business relationship with Kat. We were at the Golden Lion, (Great place too!) for a poker run and bought a door prize ticket which was pulled and we won a free breakfast last year. Glad we found this place and so should you. Enjoy!
Best all around little secret on the beach. All fresh from scratch meals. Omelets to die for, I have been eating there for two years and am always pleased, everything is delicious Can't beat the Prices. The owner chef Kathy, is such a sweet person and always ready to please. A really great little place.
Great breakfast and lunch spot. Now serving dinner on Fridays and Saturdays including thick pork chops, slow cooked pot roast and stuffed cornish hen. The owner Kathy, is also the chef. This restaurant makes the best ommlette in Flagler County.
