You may savor your ocean view accommodations at The Sandpiper in New Smyrna Beach for many reasons, including the fact that you can prepare your own meals in your condo’s spacious, state-of-the-art kitchen and eat them in your condo’s comfortable, well-appointed dining area; but did you know that New Smyrna Beach is also extremely well known for its ample array of enticing eateries? Yep, eating local in New Smyrna Beach can be quite a treat!
From casual outdoor bistros peppering its charming historic streets, to waterfront dining along its beautiful coast, New Smyrna Beach has every type of restaurant to please even the most discerning foodies.
When you stay at The Sandpiper, you can start your day with the locals, where you can fill up on the extremely affordable daily special of French toast or pancakes, eggs and sausage or bacon…and so much more at Ruthy’s Kozy Kitchen on Canal Street; or wake up to a cheddar, bacon, tomato, avocado omelet or strawberry banana French toast at Wake Up Café on Beachside.
New Smyrna also offers luscious lunches at Yellow Dog Eats, where you can feast on culinary masterpieces like their “Retriever Roast Beef” signature sandwich with Gouda cheese, caramelized onions and cranberry-horseradish-jalapeno mayo or try the Taco Shack – a fun, family owned, open-air lunch venue right on the Dixie Freeway.
When it comes to seafood, JB’s Fish Camp is a sure bet for delicious casual fare, or go a little fancier with Norwood’s Eatery and Treehouse Bar, where you can enjoy a panoramic waterfront view from your “treehouse” perch while you munch on colossal shrimp cocktail, or dine downstairs on menu items such as mahi, crab cakes or shrimp and grits.
You can also indulge in a remarkable atmosphere reminiscent of old Italy at The Garlic, where you will start with fresh from the brick oven bread. Then maybe follow that up with a lightly breaded eggplant tower with arugula, fresh pecorino and a balsamic reduction…and that is just an appetizer!
