Backfin Blue Cafe in Gulfport - Best Crab Cakes
When in the Gulfport area, be sure to check out this unsuspecting Cafe. Backfin Blue is located in the quaint little town of Gulfport, Florida and in my opinon a hidden gem. There is nothing to be impressed about as far as decor, however, the food is worth it. I had the crab cakes done two different ways....the traditional way and Imperial Portobello (lump crabmeat stuffed in a portobello mushroom topped with fire roasted red bell pepper sauce) Backfin Blue proves that you don't have to go to Maryland for a delicious crab cake. These crab cakes were by far some of the best I have ever tried. In addition, the puree of corn and crab chowder was outrageous. The amount of lump crab meat that comes on top of the soup is amazing for the price of $4.50.
When close to the Gulfport area, Backfin Blue is a must stop!
