The Coziest Winter Meals in Seaside, from Modica Market to The Shrimp Shack

The Seaside Times is dishing up and dishing on some of our favorite meals that will make you feel like it’s snowing – even if you’re really surrounded by sand. Read on to discover a few of our go-tos, including sweet treats to celebrate the holidays and savory delights that are perfect to snuggle up with on the beach. 

Modica Market

Modica Market is known for its unforgettable pastries – and one of the best is the chocolate croissant. Enjoy a quick and tasty breakfast by grabbing a croissant and pairing it with an enormous fresh squeezed orange juice, or perhaps a mimosa. After all, it is the holiday season, so ‘tis the time to indulge. 

The Shrimp Shack

Delicious Shrimp Soup from The Shrimp Shack, Seaside, Florida

The Shrimp Shack’s Cajun gumbo won Chef’s Choice at the Seaside School Foundation’s Taste of the Race in February 2023.

This hearty gumbo is a go-to, especially when the temperatures drop. Enjoy a cup or heaping bowl of the classic roux base made with Andouille sausage and fresh Gulf Coast shrimp, topped with rice to make it even more filling. It’s like the taste of New Orleans by the beach. 

Crêpes du Soleil Airstream


What could be better than a hearty, savory crepe? Pretend you’re Parisian with a cheese crepe – and if you really want to get ready for full-on hibernation, finish off your meal with a chocolate crepe or truly indulge with a bit of Nutella. There’s a reason this is a longtime favorite in Seaside; the crepes are truly unbeatable, and one of the best ways to warm up during winter. Simply take your crepe to the beach and bundle up for an unforgettable day. 

Black Bear Bread Co.

One of Seaside’s new additions is also one of its tastiest. Stop by Black Bear with the whole family for an unforgettable breakfast – or pop in for one of the memorable coffee drinks. One wintry treat is the Beekeeper, made with honey, almond milk and sea salt for a savory sweet treat. 

Pickle’s Burger & Shake

Sharing is caring, and where better than Pickle’s, a longtime favorite for families vacationing in town? While the famous fried pickles aren’t exactly seasonal, they just taste better shared with family (as long as you get your fair share of a serving, of course). Grab the pimento cheese dip as well to make sure there’s more than enough for everybody.
