Café Heavenly, New Smyrna Beach

We sat outside with the dogs and the Café Heavenly staff came out to not only admire our furry companions, but to give them a treat as well. They gave them each a little cup of frozen yogurt with a Milkbone in it while we enjoyed our lunch.
Café Heavenly’s motto is “stay healthy,” with a menu focused on sandwiches, salads, wraps, soups, smoothies and gelato. My guest and I shared a cup of flavorful vegetarian style Cuban black bean soup. Although the soup was delicious, it came out only warm, not pipping hot. I also enjoyed the hummus and veggie roll-up on a spinach tortilla. It was a tasty combination of house-made hummus, crunchy almonds, warm rice, lettuce, black olives, sprouts and tangy herb vinaigrette. Other veg friendly menu items include:

New Smyrna Dunes Park and dog beach on Ponce De Leon inlet is located on the northern tip of New Smyrna Beach peninsula. A $5 a car entrance fee will get you and your furry friend into one of the best dog friendly beaches in all of Florida. Dogs must remain on a leash, but it is fair trade for a beautiful stretch of white sanded beach and clear blue water you and your dog will immensely enjoy. The park is also home to a wide variety of animals in their natural habitat. You can walk on over 2 miles of elevated boardwalk while watching dolphins jump through the water, land turtles meander across the dunes and do a variety of bird watching.

The park is well maintained and provides the following amenities:
