Raw Bar in Melbourne

The next time you’re in Florida, don’t skip going to the Melbourne area. There is plenty to do and even more to see and it is truly a nice place. We would know, we set up shop here about four decades ago and we’re still here. Melbourne is near Indiatlantic, the beachside sliver of land. All you have to do to get here from Indiatlantic is cross the bridge (or take a boat). Once you’re on Paradise Beach keep an eye out for Bunky’s Raw Bar. That would be us. Read more

What Does Florida Mean to You?

Florida means different things to different people. For some it is where they live so it means their family, their job, their home. But for those that don’t live here it can mean a lot of different things. Words that come to mind first are sun and fun, and that’s it isn’t really? We have sun, we have fun and the places our visitors come from probably only have one of the two and that would be fun. We don’t believe Florida has a monopoly on the sun, but we do know that we are most certainly known for it. Read more
