Our friends (Flagler locals) took my wife and I By The Sea for breakfast/brunch in mid Nov. Sat outside on the front porch with nice beach views, even though soon after Hurricane Matthew. Staff was excellent and provided all we needed and mostly anticipated our needs without being asked. This quality without being intrusive, not an easy task. All 5... More

We were driving north on AIA looking for a local restaurant for breakfast. My husband spotted By The Sea Café and turned around...best decision of the morning. We sat outside and not only had the best view of the Atlantic, but experienced a delicious home-made array of food. Christina (our waitress) was awesome and attentive. Oh yeah the prices were...

Great Fresh Food, all hand prepared by Kathy, the owner. Everything is cooked to order so the non-fast food atmosphere will have you relaxed and ready to enjoy your food when it arrives.

This small restaurant opened as soon as posdible after our recent hurricane. Although they are on the part of the beach that is closed because of the road washing out, they opened and put signs on the back road to direct people through the alley to the restaurant. They were ready to go with a fully stocked kitchen. The food,... More

One of those interesting eateries so easily passed by; we made a quick right turn as we were southbound and found parking in the back. There are a few parking spaces on the grass in front of this delightful café that provides seating outdoors an inside. A great breakfast menu and lunch is also available. Owner lives above café and... More

My brother brought my family here for breakfast one morning. Very informal, rustic setting. You can eat inside or better yet sit outside and watch the people go by. Nice selection of bagels, egg dishes and sandwiches. Tab for 5 came to $38.

Thank Ernie B
