A visit to Cathy’s Beach Connection is like finding a beautiful little seashell encrusted in sand while taking a walk along the gentle surf. It’s a small, unassuming little place but step up to its misted deck with ample outdoor seating or into the café and the mood is set for smiling.
Color abounds and care is taken to craft a beachside atmosphere. This is a very casual eatery but they take more than a casual approach to the food they serve. I dined on a mozzarella, tomato and lettuce drizzled in balsamic vinaigrette and encased in a perfectly toasted roll. The fresh, crispy romaine lettuce and juicy tomato provided a perfect counter to tasty slabs of cheese. The meal came with a choice of sides for $10.95. Companion diner sampled a Juno Wrap - about $10 – of blackened grouper and was similarly impressed.
Come in shorts, bathing suit – anything casual - and expect to be pleased with both food and atmosphere. Cathy’s is close to the beautiful Juno Beach Pier. Beer, including tap for a buck, and wine served. Service: excellent. ©2010 Jane Feehan. All rights reserved.
