Welcome to my City Guide for Boca Raton! Here I will show you my favorite spots to visit, things to do, and (of course) places to eat in Boca Raton. All of the selections have pricing and value in mind.
There is a long list of places I love eating at in Boca. For coffee I love The Seed, a specialty coffee shop with locally roasted coffee and seasonal juices and smoothies. For a yummy breakfast or brunch at a great price head to Saquella Café, an Italian Bistro, espresso bar, European bakery, and tapas bar where everything is fresh and made in house. For a health and delicious lunch try The Cheese Course, a European-style bistro and cheese market known for their artisanal handcrafted cheeses, flavorful sandwiches and fresh salads. For dinner and cocktails, I hands-down recommend Farmers Table, a farm-to-table dining experience where locally grown, seasonal food is served at reasonable prices. Great for a night on the town! Finally, for dessert go to Sloan's Ice Cream for their award winning luxury ice cream.
Boca Raton does not have a shortage of incredible shopping, and if you're savvy like me you're always on a hunt for a great deal! Head over to Mizner Park for everything from boutique stores to high-end department stores – there is something for everyone including men's shopping, children's boutiques, shoe stores- the works.
If you're looking for a mall atmosphere, the Town Center at Boca Raton is also a great option for shopping.
For fantastic supermarket shopping and to support your local farmers , check out the Boca Raton Green Market. The green market offers locally grown produce, locally caught stone crab, locally made honey, and all kinds of incredible treats.
Other great store options include the brand new Trader Joe's, Fresh Market, Wholefoods, and hit up Heritage Hen for free-range, vegetarian fed farm fresh eggs.
Hands down, I recommend iPic for a night out with the family. iPic offers a premium yet affordable movie experience for everyone, and in-service cocktails and dinner options in the most comfortable reclining seats. You will not want to go home!
You can also check out the Mizner Park Amphitheatre for movies, productions, and live concerts under the stars.
For an interactive activity with friends with your significant other, sign up for a Cooking Class at Sur La Table!
Of course, the beaches are available all year round because of Boca Raton's fantastic weather. There are even dog friendly beaches available for the pooch!
