Although Cape San Blas is quiet, peaceful and without the dense high rise condo’s of Destin or Panama City, it does not mean that you can't find “the basics” on the Cape.   There are 2 outlets on the Cape San Blas, FL for groceries and other “beach basics”:

  • Scallop Cove: You can get gas, convenience store basics, general beach and camping supplies, beer wine and some produce.  You can also rent anything you need for your beach vacation: Canoes, kayaks, crab traps, fishing supplies, videos and much, much more!  Scallop Cove rents grills and diver down flags if you have the need!  It also has hot dogs, seafood gumbo and hand-dipped ice cream cones if you need a snack!

    Scallop Cove
  • The Tradin' Post:  It's near between Scallop Cove and offers much the same as Scallop Cove.   They make their own pizza for carry-out, just call them at 229-8775.
    The Tradin' Post
  • Piggly Wiggly: If a full-service grocery store is more of what you need, on the way into Cape San Blas, FLyou can stop at the Piggly Wiggly in either Port St. Joe, FL (20 min) or Apalachicola, FL (25min.).  Great place to stop on your way in!


The Indian Pass Raw Bar is close by and a favorite of locals!  Very casual!
