We took the grandkids there while they were down, they love to watch the planes taking off and as usual the breakfast is always good. They love the pancakes and I actually got the healthy breakfast and it was quite good.

Been wanting to check out Spruce Creek for possible retirement. Had no idea there was a restaurant so we were pleasantly surprised. Lots of locals there in their golf carts. Got to see several neat airplanes. Staff was good as was the food (split a turkey club). Able to sit out on the patio and watch the planes.

The menu was a little limited. However the food was good. Grilled peppers were under done, and omelette had some random onions and tomatoes in it which was not disclosed on the menu. Limited outdoor seating for parties of more than four. Staff was somewhat friendly.

We love the Downwind Cafe and eat there everytime we visit Port Orange. The new fireside seating (for drinks only) is a beautiful addition. The food, once again, was so delicious. I had the scallops with risotto. Yum!! My father in law had a pizza. Enjoy great food and watch the planes...

Downwind is a compilation of feeling in the past and yet it is today. Staff is very attentive and menu choices are almost anything american you could want. Fish, fowl, steak and chops, excellent pizza and sandwiches to your choice. Prices are very reasonable. Eat inside or out but there might be a little more noise than usual due to... More
