Good Food and Giving Back

Photography by Collis Thompson

A leader in the restaurant community along Scenic Highway 30-A in Northwest Florida since 1995, Café Thirty-A is a go-to spot for casual fine dining, an extensive wine list, martini specials, and memorable desserts. Owner Harriet Crommelin, general manager David Kessler, and executive chef Tim Williams are known for their “consistently delicious” approach that keeps locals and vacationers coming back time and again.

Whether guests stop by the bar for ’Tini Tuesday (six-dollar martinis!) or to have dinner in the expansive, airy main dining room, the food and drinks are always exceptional. The menu offers a variety for everyone, with fresh seafood, steaks, pizza, and more, along with daily specials and a fantastic wine list. Café Thirty-A’s coastal atmosphere and beautiful decor are a great setting for private events, and they provide off-site catering.

Crommelin and Café Thirty-A are also known for giving back to the community that supports the restaurant wholeheartedly. They donate to nonprofits and charitable events throughout the year, but their most significant effort goes to the annual Café Thirty-A Christmas Charity Ball, which is a way to give back, bring the community together, and celebrate the holidays all at once. The 2019 event raised $22,530 for the year’s featured nonprofit, Caring & Sharing of South Walton, which provides food and financial assistance to area families and individuals in need. The event included a silent auction with items donated by over eighty local and regional businesses.

“This is always a special event for us and our staff to host each year,” Crommelin says. “Seeing our friends and long-time patrons come out to support a cause that is near and dear to our hearts proves that this community believes in giving and paying it forward even when it’s the busiest time of the year.”
