1. Big Chill Surf Cantina

This used to be one of the best kept secrets and one of our favorite places to go in Rehoboth — especially after a day on the beach. While it’s gained popularity in the past few years, it’s still a great little stop! Right off route one, the Big Chill has a variety of beers and chillers. It may look tiny from the outside but don’t let that fool you — it’s got one of the coolest outdoors spots in town! Come chill, check out a local band, play beer pong or corn hole. Plus, this outdoor bar is dog friendly during the day!

2. Rehoboth Beach Farmer’s Market

If you happen to be visiting Rehoboth Beach during the week, make sure you stop by the Rehoboth Beach Farmers Market! The market is open on Tuesdays from 10-2 (May-October) and offers local (delicious!) eastern shore produce as well as lots of additional items such as baked goods, dog treats, handmade soaps, jams and jellies, coffees and more. When in season, be sure you grab some peaches from Bennett Orchards!

3. Rehoboth Toy and Kite Company

If you’ve ever spent time on the beach in Rehoboth, you’ve seen the their kites flying high over the beach everyday 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. If you’re walking the boardwalk, you’ll know you’re in the right place when you start to hear all the fun animal toys barking and moving! (Trust us, once you’re there, you’ll see what we mean!). This is a great stop for kids and adults alike! Check out the Toy and Kite Company, you won’t leave empty handed.

4. Revelation Brewery

We love stopping by this small, hidden craft Brewery located just off of Rehoboth Avenue. Grab some unique, local brews and a bite to eat — they offer snacks at the tasting room and usually have food trucks on site too. Our favorite time to visit is during the day, on the way home from a day at the beach. You’ll be greeted by happy staff and a chill atmosphere. Looking for some music and/or more outdoor fun? You might want to visit the Revelation Beer Garden at Hudson Fields, an outdoor, open-air beer garden in Milton, DE.

5. Crystal Restaurant

For the best chipped beef breakfast in Rehoboth, check out the Crystal. A hot morning spot, this old school diner is only open for breakfast and lunch and is always full of people. We recommend the chipped beef, yum, but but 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 (because there will be a wait!). Sounds like a great start to any morning! Order up!

6. The Purple Parrot Grill

OK, so the Purple Parrot isn’t necessarily a “hidden” spot… I mean it’s hard to miss, it’s a bright purple painted house! But, our favorite spot at the Purple Parrot is the more secluded beachy Biergarten in the back. 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. Also, looking for a fun place to go for brunch? This is definitely a place to check out!

7. Cafe Papillion, Penny Lane Mall

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 shoppes and visitors. I enjoy a strawberry, Nutella crepe topped with whipped cream, what’s your favorite?

8. Fin’s Ale House & Raw Bar

Seafood (with a specialty in oysters) and beer — the best beach combo! While Fin’s has several locations throughout the Delmarva area, our favorite one to visit is easy to get to, right off Coastal Highway in Rehoboth. Don’t miss their happy hour specials, available from 11am – 6pm on Fridays and Sundays—a great place to stop after a day on the beach! Plus, they also launched Big Oyster Brewery in Lewes, Delaware (one of our favorite spots in Lewes!), so you can try some great local brews as well!

9. Pasqualini’s Bakery

Did someone say SPRINKLE DOUGHNUTS!? Pasqualini’s is a hidden treasure sitting slightly off of Rehoboth Avenue. 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! (But, make sure to get there early, they sell out quick on the weekends!)
