Big Chill Surf Cantina
19406 Coastal Hwy
Right off route one, the Big Chill has a variety of beers and chillers but touts one of the coolest outdoor spots in town! Come chill, check out a local band, play beer pong or corn hole and make sure you order some food from their visiting food truck. They will hand deliver the goods right to your spot at the bar or on the patio… YUM! Plus, this outdoor bar is dog friendly during the day and off season!
Rehoboth Toy and Kite Company
1 Virginia Ave.
If you’ve ever spent time on the beach in Rehoboth, you’ve seen their kites flying high over the beach every day after 5pm. One cannot help but smile at the colorful variety of high and low flying kites, windsocks, whirligigs and toys offered in both the Virginia Avenue and North Boardwalk locations. Check out the Toy and Kite Company, you won’t leave empty-handed.
Snyder’s Candy Shop
60 Rehoboth Ave.
Do you like old-fashioned candy? Fudge? Chocolate covered goodness? Pez Dispensers? Tons of Jelly Belly Flavors? Then this is the shop for you! Snyder’s may be one of Rehoboth’s smallest candy shops, but it’s full of yummy goodies and fun! I have fond memories of my grandmother taking my sister and I to Snyder’s for old fashioned vanilla Cokes—a treat I can still get today!
37300 Rehoboth Ave #1
For the best chipped beef breakfast in Rehoboth, check out the Crystal. A hot morning spot, this diner is only open for breakfast and lunch and is always full of people. I order the chipped beef, yum, but I’ve been told their eggs, waffles and french toast are wonderful too… and don’t forget a side of scrapple! With a full bar in the back, you can sip on a bloody mary and chat with friends while you wait for your food. Sounds like a great start to any morning! Order up!
The Purple Parrot Grill
134 Rehoboth Ave.
Our favorite spot at the Purple Parrot is the beachy Biergarten. Sit outside under the trees, take off your shoes and put your feet in the sand, listen to the sounds of Rehoboth and chill. This is a great spot to grab a bite to eat, drink some beers and plan the rest of your weekend getaway. If you’re into a louder, action packed scene, then step into the Beach Haus for nightly entertainment, karaoke and a bustling bar.
Penny Lane Mall, 42 Rehoboth Ave.
Don’t feel like ice cream or a funnel cake? Stroll down Penny Lane to Cafe Papillon’s walk up Crepery for a lighter treat! Fill your crepe with all kinds of salty or sweet goodies and eat “frais” amid the charm of Penny Lane’s shops and visitors. I enjoy a strawberry, Nutella crepe topped with whipped cream, what’s your favorite?
Fin’s Ale House & Raw Bar
19269 Coastal Hwy.
Seafood (with a specialty in oysters) and beer, the best beach combo! Don’t miss their happy hour specials, even available on Sundays! While they have several locations, we love to stop by the one on Coastal Highway —a great place to stop after a day on the beach! Fin’s also offers a fabulous Sunday brunch until 3pm. Plus, they’ve recently launched Big Oyster Brewery, so you can try some great local brews as well!
37560 Atlantic Ave.
Pasqualini’s is a tradition in my family…every weekend we’re at the beach, we stop by to get some doughnuts—sprinkle doughnuts to be precise, though we also can’t forget about their peanut butter filled either! This family bakery offers everything from pies to handmade bread—even gourmet dog biscuits. Definitely a great way to get your sweet tooth fix while at the beach!
