About Us

Get to know the ‘natives’ at Native Cafe on Pensacola Beach, Florida.

The Native Cafe is owned and operated by fifth generation Pensacolians, the Brown family (Joyce and Charles Brown and their children, Josef Wiggins, Jesse Brown and yours truly, Arin Brown). Inspired by Pensacola’s uniquely blended culture and cuisine, we saw an opportunity to share a taste of the Gulf Coast with tourists and locals alike.

Our goal is to deliver a uniquely Pensacola culinary experience that you can’t get from the cookie-cutter franchises. We began our endeavor to start a small restaurant on Pensacola Beach in 2004. After the trials of fire, numerous hurricanes and other set backs, Native Cafe opened it’s doors for business on May 1st, 2008.

Without the benefit of extensive advertising, the word about our tasty fresh food, friendly staff and eclectic atmosphere spread to both local and distant communities alike.
