“The Frosty Frog Cafe offers terrific Hilton Head pizza, salads, sandwiches, appetizers and the best daiquiris in the area! The next time you’re searching for a Hilton Head restaurant, stop by The Frosty Frog Cafe located just minutes away from the villa! The atmosphere is perfect with a firepit, plenty of seating outside and ocean sounds coming through the speakers.”

“The Bakery was established in 1998 by the Leon family and taken over by the Belka Family from Poland in 2012. The Belka family lovingly create baked goods for their local Hilton Head and Bluffton neighbors, as well as for tourists. A wide selection of bread, pastries and deli goods are made daily from scratch, then served by the friendliest staff found anywhere. Visit the cozy cafe or have a seat in the courtyard while they prepare a cup of freshly ground coffee or perhaps your favorite tea for you. You also might want to try a Brioche, Chocolate Twist, Scone, Parisian Macarons or some other delicious sandwich, soup, quiche or pastry. The quiche is the best you will ever have!”

“Watusi Cafe's interior mirrors a warm, cozy living room where families and friends can gather and enjoy our food in a casual home-style setting. After a long day, it's a place where friends can gather to unwind over a glass of wine, or hand-crafted cocktail while enjoying a delicious meal. Sit inside, or enjoy the warm Lowcountry sunshine on the Watusi patio, outfitted with umbrellas, an array of plants, and fans to create a cool breeze.”
