Cozy quick breakfast on a Sunday with a great view and attentive staff. Ocean city platter was cooked perfectly, and biscuits and gravy were on point. The meat lovers omelette was cooked perfect and fluffy. Hashbrowns were a little too done

I like finding gems on my road trip. And By The Sea Cafe is one of these gems. Small, quiet, pleasant with good food and great service. Don't forget to stop by while on the road and passing by. You will not be disappointed!

I love to go to By the Sea Cafe for breakfast. Nothing like sitting outside in your shorts and flips flops having breakfast. Their food is standard fare, homemade and very good.

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...
