Sunset Bay Cafe Now Serving Dinner

Sunset Bay Cafe, located near the Linkside Conference Center in Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, is now serving dinner from 4 to 9 p.m. The family owned and operated restaurant uses local produce and seafood, delivered fresh daily from the docks in Destin. Menu items include homemade spinach and artichoke dip, beer braised pork belly, lemongrass yellowfin tuna and a number of sweet desserts made daily. Overlooking the Choctawhatchee Bay, Sunset Bay Cafe is known for its spectacular views, excellent service, breakfast favorites and innovative twists on the classics. “We’ve had amazing success with breakfast and lunch, but we don’t want that to become all we are known for,” said Bryce Jarvis, owner of Sunset Bay Cafe. “We are excited to offer a variety of dinner options made with the same commitment to locally sourced ingredients and sustainable seafood.” Reservations are not necessary for Sunset Bay Cafe’s dinner service, but are suggested for large parties.

Parking Woes? Sunshine Shuttle Aims to Help

Tired of spending time searching for that perfect parking spot? Sunshine Shuttle is trying to help with free public transportation in South Walton. This year, the trolley service has expanded to an 11-mile stretch of Scenic Highway 30A, running west from Seaside almost to U.S. Highway 98. The free trolley runs from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week between Memorial Day and Labor Day. John Finch with Sunshine Shuttle said the company is trying to help change the culture along Scenic Highway 30A to support greener, more community-based transportation. He hopes the effort can be a step towards alleviating congestion and protecting the environment. You can easily track the location of the trolley using the free 30A App for Android and iPhone or on Sunshine Shuttle’s website.
