When the Seagrove Village MarketCafé opened its doors in 1949, its basic motto was simple. to serve the best food possible to those that were hungry. In the old days, people would drive for miles along the back country roads to enjoy the best burgers around or enjoy a basket of deep fried love, whether it was shrimp, oysters, or fresh fish, all caught in the gulf. Over the next 60 or so years, not much has changed. The town has grown, but the food is just as good as always, with a few new items popping up on the menu every so often, such as salads, fish tacos, and chicken.
