Where To Eat And Drink In Downtown Cocoa Beach

You might be thinking Cocoa Beach has a downtown? Yes, it does, and what makes it even better is it’s away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy spots like the Pier and Ron Jon’s Surf Shop. 

It’s also home to some of the best family-owned restaurants on the Space Coast! 

Here is our complete foodie guide to dining in Downtown Cocoa Beach. Just about all these restaurants are within walking distance and make for a great date night, pub crawl, or self-guided foodie tour.

You’ll enjoy small plates and cool drinks from a rotation of local restaurants’ exclusive menus while on a guided walking tour through Historic Cocoa Village. It’s a vacation-making experience you won’t want to miss.

Downtown Cocoa Beach Restaurants

The Tiny Turtle

249 Minutemen Causeway

Cocoa Beach, FL 32931

Everything you need to know: The Tiny Turtle is a chill mom-and-pop place featuring delicious Caribbean fusion menu items. It has a relaxed island with both indoor and outdoor seating. They are currently in the process of renovating and adding a bar so that you can have some cocktails with delicious food. 

Pulled Pork Peanut Butter And Jelly Sliders At The Tiny Turtle

Some of my favorite items here are the Sofrito Bowl and the pulled pork peanut butter and jelly sliders. Also, they open for breakfast and have the most amazing stuffed french toast EVER! One of the wins about the Tiny Turle is that the menu is very reasonably priced.

Jazzy’s Mainely Lobster

210 N Orlando Ave

I still have yet to visit Jazzy’s but have heard nothing but amazing things. This is supposedly the best spot to grab a lobster roll in Brevard County. I’ve heard is you have to order it with double meat for it to taste like the real deal. That being said good Seafood ain’t cheap.

This is an epic spot to visit when you are in the area. It’s an old gas station converted into a restaurant that even has a Dessert Bar! They open early and have some great brunch options.
