Ragga Surf Cafe – an oceanside cafe that combines our true loves: the vibrant energy of the ocean we love to surf and shared meals with our community. In the winter of 2021 – with a little help from our friends – our Raggamuffin® team began developing a menu that was beach-friendly and delicious enough to feed our growing community (again and again). We dreamed of seeing our kids and grandkids growing up by the ocean — surfing and playing wildly in the waves — then coming up to the cafe for a delicious meal before heading back again to the sea. But why keep that dream to ourselves? We love to host! Our team would love nothing more than to get to know each of our patrons as we put down roots in this unique, ocean conservation-focused community in Marineland, FL.
