While often maligned, the ordinary strip mall can be a magical place, offering everything from discount home stores to delicious little cafés that make your stomach happy, and such is the story with the Neighborhood Café. Found in one of our seemingly ordinary strip malls, the aromas that waft out onto the sidewalk make it stand out from all the other businesses. Inside, red and white checked tablecloths top simple tables, while painted trellises and a counter with bar stools give it a homey vibe that invites you to sit and stay for a while. In many ways, this setup speaks to a nostalgic time gone by and brings the best of it back to life with a touch of Fort Walton Beach style! There’s nothing quite like sipping a hot cup of coffee at the counter with good friends while watching pancakes get flipped right before your eyes.

The concept for Neighborhood Café is one that was born by owners Richard and Ricky long before the doors to the eatery first opened in 2005. Today, Neighborhood Café has become a somewhat iconic stop in the Fort Walton Beach area and the fact that its family owned and operated only makes it that much more charming and meaningful for those that swing by to enjoy a delicious meal or two.
The Menu The Neighborhood Café
The food served at the Neighborhood Café is as far from haute cuisine as Fort Walton Beach is from Paris. Simple, fresh, and hearty, the dishes served here could have come straight from your grandmother’s kitchen! From sunrise specials that include our favorite Southern comfort dish (biscuits and gravy) to their homemade pancakes created with secret ingredients they won’t share and omelets stuffed full with your favorite ingredients to steak bagels, every dish is designed to not just fill that hole in your empty stomach but to feed your soul!
Offering white chocolate strawberry pancakes for those desiring sweet, chorizo omelets for those who live for spicy, and a special Mickey Mouse shaped pancake for the youngest members of your traveling party, there’s a simple and tasty meal for all patrons. Their hash brown casserole is a savory treat available for an added charge with any meal, and although they don’t offer any adult beverages, unlimited refills of coffee, tea, and sodas for those dining in help help keep their prices in the reasonable range! Breakfast sandwiches include grilled cheese and a sweet and savory Monte Cristo, and their secret homemade Belgian waffle was created just for you. An extensive lunch menu is filled with sandwiches both hot and cold, soups, salads, and seafood; if you want more details, you should probably go check out the Neighborhood Café yourself!
