No. 66 - Fish Sandwich from Lazy Loggerhead Cafe
Beachside, in flip flops, eating a fresh hunk of perfectly cooked mahi hot off the grill with a drizzle of mango sauce (or, blackened with lime sauce). Does life get better?
Only if you could see the beach.
No matter. The Lazy Loggerhead Cafe is in Carlin Park right beside the dunes and next to the boardwalk. If you're into watching gorgeous bods and some that need or have had work stroll past, dragging surfboards, kids with buckets or just a towel, get a window seat or sit outside.
Otherwise, stay in the cool and watch the chef, appropriately named Brian Wilson, as he flips out salads, burgers, and these delightful sandwiches. All are accompanied by his killer fresh salsa, cole slaw and crisp fries. They close early so he can surf - and there are lines on weekends in season. Prepare ahead.
Lazy Loggerhead Cafe, in Carlin Park, 401 S.R. A1A, Jupiter; 561-747-1134.
