The Bay Restaurant Welcomes the South Walton Community to Meet Santa Claus!
“This is the first time I’ve had good bread in America in 30 years,” Delphine Debono matter-of- factly announced in her French accent as she made her way to the front door of Black Bear Bread Company located in a charming white cottage at Shops of Grayton.
Every morning in Grayton Beach at Hibiscus Café is special but Sundays are off the chart!
The Café opens as usual at 7:30 a.m., but the real fun starts with the Hibiscus Backyard of Love Funday Sunday Brunch charity events from 10 to 1. The regular Café menu is expanded to include wine and a mimosa bar with live music underneath the beautiful oaks.
Café Thirty-A owner Harriet Crommelin is hosting the annual Charity Christmas Soirée on Friday, December 1, 2017. The Christmas-themed event benefits Caring and Sharing of South Walton. Tickets are available for $75 per person at cafethirtya.com.

Though you may find him fishing, you won’t likely ever find Chef David Bishop fishing for compliments.
Hardworking, focused and self-effacing, Bishop would rather be nearly anywhere than in the spotlight. Not surprisingly, the place he is most at home, most relaxed and happy is in his kitchen at Bud & Alley’s Waterfront Restaurant in Seaside, which is where we caught up with him recently between lunch and dinner service.

The sweet family concept is displayed daily by the sugary concoctions emanating from the silver home of Five Daughters Bakery where Isaac and Stephanie Meek have settled in with their sweet donut eats.
