Vegetarian/health food restaurants in the greater Tampa area

Would like recommendations for spots in the Tampa area, especially Pinellas County, that serve health food/organic/vegetarian food. Suggestions?

  1. I'm at a loss for a SP recommendation but in Tampa, Nature's Harvest is a grocery store that has a lunch counter. It is in a strip shopping center on MacDill Avenue just north of Cypress. Unfortunately, the long-time veggie restaurant The Natural Kitchen closed recently after almost 30 years on Kennedy Blvd. in Tampa.

    1. In Pinellas County for light lunch-fare dining such as sandwiches, salads etc. go to Nature's Finest Foods (another grocery store that also has seating)
      6651 Central Ave
      St. Petersburg, FL

      1. Grass Roots Organic Cafe on Florida Avenue in Tampa Heights. You WONT be dissapointed

        1. rshally, what's grass roots like? and what are the hours?

          1. Check out Consciousness Blossoms on Tampa Rd and Lake St George Dr, just east of US 19 in 7-11 Plaza, its a vegetarian lunch place, dinner only on Fri nights.

            Also, Palm Harbor Natural Foods - grocery store with Deli section and seating on Curlew and US 19, in plaza with Publix. Both my favorite places in the area.
