The colorful crystals of snow cones. Cold beer and the rosy cumulus of cotton candy. The foods and drinks at Beach Bites call to mind a beachside carnival. Sandwiches there range from a Chicago-style italian beef with giardiniera to a pulled-pork construction that wouldn’t be out of place in Memphis or on a list of things it is funny to throw on a butler. Along with the eatery’s specialties, customers can build their own sandwiches, filling out a checklist of desired meats, cheese, and toppings. Fruit smoothies with a splash of wine or snow cones topped off with Yuengling lager or one of the other beers on tap add a twist to standard icy treats.
For nearly two decades, 1st Street Cafe & Catering has served up buffet and sit-down style meals for parties around Manatee and Sarasota County. Its physical location has a café that dishes out classic American breakfasts and lunches.

During lunch, they tear into grilled-steak and pork-tenderloin sandwiches and juicy burgers. One such option, the Challenger double burger, allows patrons to stuff their mouths with 12 ounces of burger meat, crispy bacon, and slices of cheese, and to get at least 1.5 high-fives from nearby diners when it’s all gone.

The Café's 4,000 sq. foot restaurant and banquet rooms provide ample space for parties, weddings, and private events.

Dining-room sounds mingle with music from live bands and karaoke and waft outside to the patio, where a tiki bar stands beside a resort pool, welcoming visitors to drink under the stars or cool their palates after fire-breathing competitions.
