This no frills Cuban cafe is a great place to try after a long day at the beach. When you are tired and overheated and seeking a simple casual cafe to enjoy a quick bite, Bay 1 should do the trick.
The menu is pretty simple here, consisting of sandwiches, empanadas, and ice cream from a local company in Sarasota. Sandwich options include their popular Cuban, plus pulled Pulled Pork, Rueben, Italian, Ham and Cheese, Turkey and Cheese, Turkey Club, and BLT. The sole vegetarian options are Peanut Butter and Jelly and
The empanadas are really delicious. Try the Spinach, Artichoke, and Cheese if you are seeking something really savory and flavorful. Of course, after a long day in the
sun, sometimes you just crave ice cream. They offer over 10 options of homemade ice cream which you can get by the scoop or cone. Floats, shakes, sundaes, banana splits, and malts available.
This is a quick service restaurant, so there is no waiter service.
The setting here is really low key. It's never overly busy and super casual. Not much in the decor department, simply a laid-back place to grab a quick bite to eat.
Bay 1 is a good choice for anyone craving sandwiches or ice cream after a hot day enjoying beautiful Indian Rocks Beach. Conveniently, it is located within minutes from one of the Gulf's top beaches.
