Grayton Beach is one of the original communities along 30A and has stunning beaches, treasured dunes, and a laid-back vibe. It’s no wonder Grayton Corner Café has taken root in this beach lover’s paradise. 

Grayton Corner Café, like Grayton itself, is an eclectic café that marches to the beat of its own drum. This quaint café serves lunch from 11 AM until 3 PM, but their website notes that “Often open later in the afternoon, so please call.”

Like the tide, the menu changes daily based upon what fresh, locally sourced ingredients are available. The staff is friendly and takes pride in serving the café’s delicious food while ensuring that customers have everything they need.  

Grayton Corner Café is also your go-to source for all things related to wine. Their wine shop is connected to the café and carries a good variety of reasonably priced wines. For the beer lover in the crowd, they have a good selection of premium brews. 

Most cafés would stop there, but Grayton Corner Café takes their passion for wine further. You may want to consider their wine club. They offer three levels starting with Dutch, then Date Night, followed by the crème de la crème, VIP. These memberships provide wine nights at Grayton Corner Café, wholesale wine purchases, discounts buying wine at their store, and café credits. Each level has different perks, so check their website for specifics. 

Throughout the year, Grayton Corner Café offers wine nights on Saturdays, and reservations are encouraged. The wine varies, but you can rest assured they pair it perfectly with the evening’s courses. If you are not interested in having wine, they have a discounted price that includes the meal and a non-alcoholic beverage. 

As if that’s not enough, Grayton Corner Café will deliver wine to you! So while you’re soaking up the sun, they’ll be happy to deliver a bottle for you to uncork when you’re ready to relax. 

Though the menu varies daily, they do have some staples that we can recommend. 

Peel & Eat Gulf Shrimp
Served chilled with shells on, this 1/4 pound of seasoned, boiled shrimp is the perfect start to a delicious meal. 

Cafe Salad
This salad, which comes with a muffin, consists of fresh mixed greens, sliced tomatoes, avocado, cucumbers, squash, mushrooms, bell peppers, sweet onion, and sprouts. Drizzle on one of their homemade dressings —2,000 Island, Italian, Ranch, Citrus Grapefruit Vinaigrette—and you will see why it’s a local favorite.

Roast Turkey or Alabama Ham Sandwich
First, select which house-baked bread you prefer: semolina sesame, grain & seed flatbread, or soft french. Next, choose either Carver roast turkey or Alabama ham, followed by your choice of cheese: provolone, cheddar, or American. Fresh veggies top off the sandwich, which is served with Jicama Slaw. 

Key Lime Pie
Be sure you save room for dessert! Like everything served at Grayton Corner Café, the key lime pie is made in-house and is the perfect ending to a delightful meal. Whole pies are available for sale, too. 

Whether you grab a quick lunch, sign up for a wine night, or peruse their wine selection, the Grayton Corner Café will fast become one of your favorites on 30A.
