The Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals come to the Jupiter community of Abacoa for spring training and each year flocks of people migrate to Abacoa’s Main Street. Main Street is just adjacent to Roger Dean Stadium, and a pleasant area to walk and enjoy dinner al fresco.
There is a lot more to Abacoa than just spring training baseball. This quaint, brick lined street hosts a variety of shops, restaurants and taverns. Top places to eat in Abaco are plentiful ranging from brewery/pub to casual French bistro.
Civil Society Brewing Company located at 1200 Town Center Drive, is a brewery and bar, which pours craft beer to spring training fans. One of the owners of the brewery is a retired major league pitcher for the Miami Marlins, Chris Volstad. Closed on Mondays.
The Copacabana Restaurant, 1209 Main Street, serves savory Cuban cuisine to baseball players, baseball fans and non-fans alike. The café is well respected for its genuineness and calls many of the players repeat customers. Copacabana is a family owned restaurant dedicated to serving the most authentic Cuban food in the area. Live music and dancing on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Le Metro Bistro, 1155 Main Street is a lovely bistro serving soup, salad, quiche, burgers and much more. The bistro serves casual French food, such as Dover sole meuniere, filet et poivre, chicken francese, bouillabaisse and more. Closed on Sundays.
Try to catch a “Food Truck Invasion” on the second Friday of each month in Abacoa. The food truck gathering is an area favorite. Gourmet food trucks park along the streets and sell food, drinks and tasty desserts and offer al fresco dining to visitors. It is a lively, amusing event for the entire family.
