Where You Need to Go to Find the Best Brunch and Brewery in Destin

Kegs and eggs, brunch and brews, pajamas and pilsners. Whatever you want to call it, there’s no denying that our favorite breakfast foods pair perfectly with some of our favorite nighttime brews. And if there was ever a place to indulge, it’s near the crystal white sands of 30A and Destin. Here are our five favorite spots for the best brunch and breweries in Destin. 

  • World of Beer

It wouldn’t make sense to call out Destin’s best brew spots without paying homage the all-inclusive World of Beer in the heart of Destin. The restaurant’s brunch menu offers decadent options such as warm donut bites, Belgian waffles, and their very own Hangover Skillet. And the beer menu has, literally, something for everyone. Whether you heart the hoppiest of hoppy or if you’re a wheat beer wooer, they have several options for you to enjoy. 

  • The Local Market

Don’t let this simple sandwich shop fool you—they offer some of the best sandwiches and craft brews in town. The Local Market is the ideal stop for a bite and beer in between beach hopping. Pull up a bench at their open-kitchen dining area and spend the morning with old and new friends alike. 

  • The Craft Bar

The Craft Bar in Destin Commons is just that—an expertly crafted restaurant featuring chef-inspired bites and brewer-inspired beers. We recommend pairing JJ’s Hushpuppies and their buttermilk-soaked fried green tomatoes with a pint of Idyll Hounds Brewing Company’s coffee and vanilla Joe.

Staying near 30A? Visit their location in Grand Boulevard.

  • McGuire’s Irish Pub

McGuire’s Irish Pub is a local favorite in the heart of Destin. The authentic pub offers an array of omelets and benedicts, a bottomless mimosa bar, and five homebrewed beer options. It’s the perfect place for the whole family!

  • 2 Birds Cafe 

2 Birds Cafe is a modern cafe featuring trendy twists on traditional breakfast staples. Enjoy their breakfast sandwich with eggs, cheddar, bacon, tomato, avocado, and spicy mayo on a toasted bagel. They offer four brews on tap with one revolving local brew or dip into their Vermouth bar for a classic start to the morning.
