Cozy setting.

From sushi to flatbread, to dumplings to salad. We make everything fresh.

Whenever possible, we source our ingredients locally from farmers and artisans that we know. From there, our kitchen goes to work daily prepping and cooking to bring you fresh, clean options that not only look great, they taste great!


Wed.–Sun. 4–9:30 p.m. No reservations.

Park and shuttle to Seaside for free!

Did you know you can park and shuttle directly to Seaside for free? It is a short and beautiful scenic route. Catching the shuttle allows you to take in the stunning views of Western Lake, a rare coastal dune lake, directly on your path to Seaside.

Park at the public parking lot on 283 South. The locals call the parking area Grayton Central. Shuttles begin at 6 a.m. and service ends at 11:00 p.m. every day. Shuttles come and go about every 15 minutes. The service runs through October 31.

You will be dropped off at the Lyceum Gateway on Quincy Circle between 45 Central Wine and Sushi Bar and Artful Eye.

Important Information Regarding Parking

The Town of Seaside has implemented a $15 per day parking fee for anyone that parks in Seaside town parking areas. This does not include the parking along 30A. This is effective from 9a–9p daily. 
Seaside Central Square remains closed to automobile traffic, which in turn means there is less parking in town, so please plan ahead to find a spot. 
To avoid potential parking issues, we recommend riding the courtesy shuttle offered by the town. details can be found below on this page. 
Great Southern Café and all merchants are tenants of Seaside and do not have any control over paid parking. We are small, locally owned businesses and this is as disruptive to us as it is to our valued guests. Please direct your comments and feedback to Seaside. Here is an article they published on their paid parking implementation: https://seasidefl.com/news/seaside-implements-paid-parking.

We’d love to see you!
