Among the favorites that keep patrons coming back for more is the signature “Cruffin,” a delightful fusion of a croissant and a muffin that’s as unique as it is delicious. The menu also boasts homemade bread, mouthwatering cinnamon rolls, decadent crème brûlée, and even custom cakes for those looking to add a sweet touch to special occasions.
The journey of Irie’s Island Food began eight years ago when Martin and Nicole, inspired by their shared dream of owning a restaurant, decided to bring their culinary vision to life. With Martin’s impressive background as a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and years of experience as a chef in various establishments, the couple was ready to carve out their own culinary niche. Port Aransas, with its scenic charm and Nicole’s fond memories of her earlier years on the island, became the chosen location for their venture.
The decision to name the restaurant after their daughter, Irie, adds a personal touch that resonates with the warmth and familial atmosphere found within the eatery’s walls. Since its opening in the summer of 2013, Irie’s Island Food has become a beloved fixture in the community – a place where good food, friendly faces, and a welcoming ambiance come together. Whether you’re stopping in for a quick and satisfying meal or indulging in a delectable treat from the bakery, Irie’s Island Food invites you to visit.
