Best Places to Get Lunch in Destin, Florida
One of the great things about Destin is there is no shortage of great places to dine! While you’ll find a few chains here and there, the area is teeming with incredible local restaurants just waiting to be discovered. With a wide variety of options to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters, you could try a different place in Destin each day and never run out of options. Make the most of this rainy Monday (even in Destin, it rains!) and venture out for a bite to eat. Here are our picks for the best places to get lunch in Destin, Florida.
- Capriccio Cafe – Come for the crepes in the morning, but stay for their simple yet delightful selection of salads and sandwiches. Our favorite is the Prosciutto di Parma: prosciutto, cheese, greens, and extra virgin olive oil served on a delicious slice of focaccia.
- Mimmo’s – Mimmo’s is hands down one of our favorite Italian restaurants in Destin. All their sandwiches and paninis come served on fresh, homemade bread. We recommend The Sicilian: grilled chicken, fire-roasted red
peppers, caramelized onions, and fresh basil. Don’t forget an order of Mimmo’s Famous Italian Garlic Rolls!
- The Craft Bar – This Florida gastropub has locations in Destin, Miramar Beach, Panama City Beach, and coming soon in Fort Walton Beach. Stop into the Destin location for a pulled pork lunch plate with Williamson Bros. BBQ Sauce and roasted Brussels sprouts with low country grits. To snack¬†on, go for the truffle fries with Parmesan cheese and Italian parsley. You won’t regret it!
- Camille’s – Camille’s Cafe and Beach Bar is open 7 AM – 5 PM daily, with a menu that’s sure to please. Treat yourself to a Smoked Tuna Salad with Harbor Dock’s house-smoked¬†yellowfin tuna with tomato, lettuce, and provolone on an asiago bagel.
While you’ve got food on the brain, don’t forget about the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday! If you have yet to book your vacation home in Destin, there’s still time! Our top pick for Thanksgiving is Griffin’s Getaway, a four-bedroom vacation home that sleeps nine. You’ll love direct beach access along with the Caribe neighborhood’s relaxing amenities. Griffin’s Getaway also features a carriage home for extra space that the kids in your group will love!
