GULF BREEZE | FLORIDA | COASTAL LIFESTYLE
linger, longer... savor
Tucked away in an unassuming spot at the water’s edge on Pensacola Bay, in Gulf Breeze — you'll find La Brisa, with a view right out of the south seas. This gem of coastal culinary delight is more than just a flavorful discovery. The compelling combination of a great view, casual ambience, and delicious food always works for me! It's like a magnet drawing me back, time after time. While this lovely setting is easily accessible — it’s not easily noticed by passers-by. Most need it pointed out to them - or someone tells them about it, and then they realize they’ve passed it often, and never saw it.
The location is inside a local hotel and doesn’t have it’s own separate identity, unfortunately. But once you do drop in - you’ll be back! Chef John Huggins, a local Pensacola native, knows how to please the palate, and his creations and style are coastal + comfort, with fabulous flair. For comfort, you’ll find classic favorite seafood dishes along with burgers and fries, but don’t expect anything average - in taste or presentation. John displays his creative spirit by appealing to our senses of sight, aroma, and amazing taste. The plates are full of colorful and fresh delicious-ness with aromas that build your anticipation for the burst of flavor contained in each bite. Which is to say, go to La Brisa expecting to be filled up with exceptional food. You will be surprised at the portions, and everyone finds it difficult to make a choice, because it’s all so very appetizing!
