Starbucks is inside the Cocoa Beach Surf Company and so is the Shark Pit Grill (great food). Beautiful aquarium. There is also a Starbucks on the corner of 520 and N. Banana River Blvd. I enjoy their special iced coffee concoctions.

Love this place. Eat in, delivery or take out. Fantastic, huge pizzas, fresh salads, great pasta. I eat here once or twice a week when I can. Nice little bar with draft beer inside to sit at and wait for your to go order. Outside and indoor tables. Super family friendly. Very popular with locals. Try to order before 6pm they get busy. Tell them Ginny sent you :) 321-868-7177

I go here often. Sports bar with a surfer theme inside the Cocoa Beach Surf Co.. Really good burgers, salads, pizza, and draft beer. I get their Pizza Florentine with Italian sausage instead of bacon. Bella! Starbucks is also located here. Beautiful, full story fish tank with sharks, eels and tropical fish. Park inside the garage for free.

Essentials
Go out McKinley to the light on A1A. Go left and Publix is on your right. Nice sub sandwiches, but go early. There is a nice Mexican restaurant called "Mexico" in the plaza and a Chinese takeout (Ok, not great).

I have had only good experiences with this auto repair shop. Once we had to push my daughter's friends Audi to the shop. Dave diagnosed and ordered parts and had it fixed before her vacation ended. Reasonable prices and they stand by their work. They change oil, fix tires, etc.

Getting Around
There are stops on A1A and the buses go north and south all over the Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach area. Its an inexpensive way to relax and tour the beach area. My kids and their friends took the SCAT all summer long and enjoyed themselves immensely. Stops near Ron Jon's, downtown Cocoa Beach, more. Check their website for more information. ridescat.com
