About Us

Chef Papa’s is a family owned and operated cafe, catering, and foods to go business all rolled into one. Located on Beach Street in historic Downtown Daytona Beach right next to Angell & Phelps Chocolate Factory. Keeping with the area’s rich heritage, our cafe’s interior decor displays the original brick and wood used to build the structure back in the early 1900’s.

Only the best is used in our recipes including the freshest fruits and vegetables from the local farmers market along with quality meats and cheeses from reputable food suppliers. Stop in to try a reasonably priced, fresh and delicious lunch or contact us to set up a tasting table for your wedding or next upcoming event.
