Come one, come all. Everyone is invited. It's that time of year again, when the air is crisp, the nights are a bit cooler and the leaves are dropping from the trees. Fall is one of my favorite times of year. This means that it's time again for the Annual Holy Name of Jesus Beachside Fall Festival in Indialantic, FL. There will be live entertainment with dancing, singing and so much more. There will be a craft shop and plants for sale. There are carnival rides, a bounce house and aqua balls. *On Thursday and Sunday buy an arm band for $20.00 to ride all the carnival rides as many times as you like. There will be lots of food and German beer. My favorite is the funnel cake. They'll also have hamburgers, hot dogs, Charlie and Jakes BBQ, french fries, pizza, bratwurst, skewers, ice cream, s...

I have loved Cuban food ever since my college days in South Florida. The taste and style from this large island...that is only 90 miles from the Florida coast has a personality all its own. We have, because of our close proximity I assume, a decent number of Cuban offerings here in Central Florida. Cuban Island Restaurant is the latest Cuban restaurant in the Melbourne, FL area to take a stab at the island's unique cuisine. The restaurant is located in Indialantic, FL. It is just south of Eau Gallie Blvd and about 3 miles north of Rt192 directly on the west side of Hwy A1A...and across the street from the Indialantic Hilton. I went on the second day the restaurant was open. Whenever I go to a new place, I go in with an open mind. I assume the service will be less than stellar and the r...

The Cloisters is a high end gated community located in Indialantic, FL off Riverside Dr between the Eau Gallie and Melbourne Causeways. It is a beautiful community that is loaded with amenities.

I did a nice 5 mile run along the beach this morning and I started early. I was able to see...and capture the sunrise as I took a break at the halfway point. I must have ran past about 100 people shooting photos of the beautiful clear July 29, 2012 Sunrise! This picture was taken at the portion of the beach at the very end of 5th ave in Indialantic...directly in front of the Starbucks I call my second office. Come by and say hello if you are ever in the area!

I love Greek and Mediterranean food. We have a few places throughout the Space Coast that we can go for casual dining and fairly authentic recipes. I would now have to add the new Julian's Mediterranean Restaurant in Indialantic at the top of my list when I have a craving for Hummus, Babganoush (eggplant dip), Grape Leaves or any of the delicious Mediterranean specialties they offer. The Gyro (pronounced Yee-Ro) Sandwich is the best I have had on the Space Coast. The Spinach Pie is excellent...and the Mousaka (an eggplant and meat casserole) is really good. I love eggplant so Julian's menu is right up my alley :) Julian's has a full Vegan and Vegetarian menu for those who have a hard time eating out because they have trouble finding something on the average restaurant menu that fits th...

Palm Colony Club is a large condo project located on the west side of A1A in N. Indialantic, FL. It has very reasonable pricing, a good Condo Association with full time in house representation as well as a very nice level of amenities. Palm Colony Club has both one and two bedroom condos...both first and second floor units are available. The project was built out over a number of years, so you will find condos that are aged from the mid 70s to the mid 80s (although they all look alike). The Condos are broken down into separate buildings with eight condos on each building side. The hallways on each side of the buildings lead to four of the condos (two up and two down...front and back). The 1 bedroom 1.5 bath units are priced from around 60k to 80k depending on the level of upgrade. Thes...

The Long Doggers in Indialantic has been fully re-modeled. It looks great and I finally got a chance to go to the new place. It is as great as ever so I decided it was time to do a re-post of my origonal blog post from about a year or so ago. I could call Long Doggers a wing, burger and beer place...but I think that would be selling this local institution a little short. Long Doggers has four Melbourne area locations...including two beachside...one in Indialantic and one in Satellite Beach. Both beachside locations are directly across the street from the Atlantic Ocean! Long Doggers is a great place to go with friends and family to watch a game, get loud talking about surfing (this is definitely a surfer place as you will see when you walk in) or enjoy the good food and just relax. Som...

I love the small strip center that is located at the end of Rt 192 (5th Ave) in Indialantic. It has my favorite Starbucks, Bizzarro Pizza (my favorite Pizza), Cold Stone Creamery (always good by the beach) and Burrito Ranch Co. Today my son and I decided to go to Burrito Ranch Co. First, I want to say that this is not a bad place...and has a great location. The problem is we have many quality Tex/Mex burrito style restaurants and Burrito Ranch Co. just does not measure up. The food is acceptable (not great) but they do have a nice Tex/Mex menu and also offer cheesesteak sandwiches. My boy noticed the place is not the cleanest you will find and he saw ants in the drink cup they gave him. We got a new cup and cleaned everything first before we ate. I had a burrito and he had a quesadilla...

I really like to hang out at City Tropics. It has a great location (just west of the beach on 5th Ave), an amazing happy hour, really cool indoor/outdoor bars and a large array of food options so you can usually accommodate everyone in a group. The food is decent and includes both normal bar food (burgers, sandwiches, salads, etc...) as well as a full menu and a sushi bar! The seating area is large and includes indoor and outdoor seating as well as a large sliding glass wall that allows them to take advantage of our wonderful Florida weather. The Happy Hour runs from 11am to 7pm and offers $2 domestic beer, $2 well drinks and a great happy hour menu with a number of items for $5. Try the Tuna Sliders...they are really good! On the negative side...the food is decent but not great. The s...

First things first...a bunch of places all along the Space Coast are called Bizzarro...the ONLY one I am reviewing is the location at the very end of 5th Ave in Indialantic...right on the beach! The others have mixed results at best with some not worth reviewing at all. That being said...The Original Bizzarro New York Pizza on 5th Ave is without question the best pizza on the Space Coast (the best cheese pizza, best white pizza...and best Sicilian pizza). This place has large thin crust NY style pizza that will make you feel like you just got off a plane at JFK. They sell full pies as well as by the slice ($2.75 for a cheese or white slice) and they serve fountain drinks and beer as well as a very good full Italian menu (try the eggplant parmigiana sub). A couple of words of advice...t...

I love Sushi. It is one of those cuisines I am willing to travel a distance to eat. Thankfully Thai Thai II located in Indialantic at the corner of A1A and Paradise Beach is not only really good Sushi...it has a great beachside location directly across A1A from Paradise Beach Park...in the same plaza as Ichabod's and Bunky's. Thai Thai II has an equally good sister restaurant in Melbourne with a very similar menu. The Sushi and Pad Thai are both really good and very fresh. At Thai Thai II you will usually find a full house inside and outside on the patio (if the weather is good) until late in the night (by Space Coast standards) You will usually see three very busy sushi chefs. This place hums! I have not had a bad meal here...my suggestion...sit out on the patio...try the seaweed sala...

The Jungle is an interesting local business that is located in Indialantic, FL...directly across from the Atlantic Ocean (about 1/2 mile south of Eau Gallie Blvd) on Hwy A1A. It is part really good organic restaurant and well stocked organic market. This is a place I often stop by for lunch...and then stock up on some organic vegetables and other needs like organic beer and wine, gluten free items...and even organic pet foods. The restaurant is open for lunch (or brunch on Sunday) all week...and opens for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. I love the salads, sandwiches and veggie burgers that The Jungle has to offer. My favorite is the Balsamic Roasted Eggplant Sandwich...it is so tasty you might find yourself ordering it most every time you come here. Brunch offers (along with the ...

In the 1920's as strange as it may seem...alcohol was illegal in the U.S. Many rum-runners of the time practiced their trade off the coast of Indialantic. It was during this period that the Indialantic Casino was a thriving location for many movers and shakers to meet and greet, do business, relax and of course party! The location of the Indialantic Casino is the spot that is now John Nance Park (on the northern side of Rt 192/5th Ave...directly on the Atlantic Ocean)...in fact a sign marks the spot across the parking lot from Bizzarro Famous New York Pizza (the best pizza in town). The Indialantic Casino had a large salt water pool and a long boardwalk that visitors could stroll on and take in the beautiful Central Florida winter weather...the average high temps in Indialantic in the ...

A new restaurant just opened up a few days ago on 5th Ave (Rt 192) in Indialantic and it is a Carolina style BBQ / Norfolk hot dog joint called Max & Porky's. I decided to head there for lunch today and review it for my readers (and of course because I am in love with Carolina BBQ)! BBQ seems to start more arguments then any other type of food. There are four real players in the BBQ wars....Carolina, Texas, Hawaii, Memphis and Kansas City. Each area has there own special style...and I must admit I do not know why all the arguments break out...because I love all five! Carolina has a lighter style BBQ sauce that is more vinegar based...very good. For the sake of writing this post I felt the need to try both the Carolina BBQ and the Norfolk Dogs. This is a counter style restaurant that is...
