Gulf Breeze Things to Do
After leaving the beach....
One thing about this area - you can usually find a variety of things to do. The best thing is to get the local paper on a Friday and check out the weekend section for a schedule of events, or make use of the free papers you see around town.
There's a big indoor flea market every weekend on 98, right across from the zoo.
The movie theatre has stadium type seating and a great sound system.
You can't beat the fishing off the Pensacola Bridge, and you just may get to see the local
man who hangs out on a cross. You can visit the bait shop before you hit the bridge - look on the left before you go over.
If you don't catch anything, head on over to Joe Pattis on the other side of the Bridge, where you can buy fresh fish, cold cuts and warm bread.
Just a few ideas...It's a good idea to visit the visitors center on the Pensacola side of the bridge for more info.

Toro Bravo Mex-Mex Grill: Quick Service
Favorite Dish: This is not the Tex-Mex Grill. It really is the Mex-Mex. See photo 3.
They had the chips and salsa on the table almost before we had a chance to open our menu. I couldn't quite place the flavor in the dark dip (photo 2).
Bob had a Combo #17 for $7.25 (burrito, enchillada, rice and beans).
I got a cheese quesadilla ($3.90), iced tea ($1.65) and a fried ice cream ($2.25) which was made with strawberry ice cream.Related to:

Papas' Pizza: Best Pizza/dessert
Best pizza in the area, especially if you ask for a little crispier crust.
Favorite Dish: Limited entrees, but good food all around. They have the best desserts - check out the carrot cake or tiramisu, made for them by a local pastry chef. Yum. You can sit and eat, while admiring what they've done to the place, but it's mainly takeout. I understand they have a place on the beach but haven't been there yet.
