OVERHEARD ON THE WEB: Destin Commons Expansion and the city’s best cup of Joe

Published: Monday, September 24, 2012 at 09:10 AM.

The news of the expansion at Destin Commons garnered plenty of suggestions on The Log’s Facebook page as to what stores or restaurants locals would like to see. Twenty new retailers and three new restaurants are slated for the project.

Shaun Roberts: Cheesecake Factory and California Pizza Kitchen!
Kristal Roberts: Macy's or Dillards
Greg Schmidt: Costco
Rhonda Boyer Creger: Nordstrom, Ann Taylor (not Loft)
Tami Rupp McElrath: New York & Co., Charming Charlie
Greg Roberts: Apple Store!
Itz Rosy: Steak and Shake PLEEEEEEZE
Tami Tilkin: Might be too "common" for the Commons, but the stores I drive to Fort Walton for are Jo-Anns, Party City, TJ Maxx, and Kohl's.
Debra Jourdan: Macy's and a Bahama Breeze Restaurant
Toni Harper Strang: Game rooms


We recently asked fans where their favorite place to grab a cup of Joe was, and here is what they said.

Christopher Doyle McClure: Malibu Jack's! Support local business!
MaryAnn Powell: Starbucks in Destin Commons
Scotty Lisenbe: My house…
Pitkasta Aikaa: hmm, maybe not on-the-go, but Barnes Noble Coffee Shoppe is good for coffee, coffee drinks, and some sweets to go with it!
Tom Nevens: Bad Ass coffee
Dawn Morrison Franco: Destin desperately needs a Dunkin' Donuts... Best coffee! Starbucks is overrated, over-roasted, and overpriced!
Anthony Whitney: Wish we had a Caribou coffee now that's awesome coffee!


Destin is always a popular topic on Twitter. Here is some of the chatter related to our little slice of paradise.
