Established in 1981, the Gulf Drive Café sits directly on the spectacular white-sand and emerald water views of the Gulf of Mexico.  We are a tropical family-friendly eatery that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Located in Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island, we are just a few blocks north of the Cortez Bridge.  Gulf Drive Café was named one of the “Best Breakfasts in Florida” by Southern Living Magazine.  Join us and dine on fresh Florida seafood and other specialties while watching the multi-colored sunset over the shimmering Gulf of Mexico.  We provide generous portions, fantastic cuisine and cheerful service in a comfortable beach atmosphere.

Our wedding and events venue is also one of the most picturesque on the island.  Enjoy your special event with a backdrop of the turquoise-green shimmering waters of the Gulf.   Our newest addition is the Kokonut Hut tiki full-service bar with 11 HD TV's and special concoctions.  You can enjoy a cold cocktail, nice breeze and island views under the tiki hut.  Have a sweet tooth instead?  Come visit our new gelato station.  Featuring live entertainment, drink specials and great food, come relax and unwind after a long day.
