The Gulf Drive Café has been in business on the beach in Bradenton since 1981. It sits directly on the spectacular sugar white sands and turquoise emerald views of the Gulf of Mexico on Anna Maria Island’s south end. Recently renovated they added a large outdoor patio and two tiki huts. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and we recently had breakfast on the patio and I have to say this is one of the best waterfront dining locations on the island.

We had perfect beach weather here on Saturday so this was a great start to a perfect beach day. The food was tasty and they have a good variety of things on the menu. There is plenty of parking in their lot across the street. We got there early so didn’t have to wait for a table. Once the vacationers are up in the later morning it gets busy but I think it’s worth the wait!
