breakfast between tampa airport and ybor city
Will spend a night at the Tampa airport and then stopping at Ybor City before going to Longboat Key for my vacation in August. Anyone have any idea where a good place for breakfast maybe? It will be a Sat. morning,
Also anyone know a good store to stock up on things for my week. I like to cook on vacation and am used to Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and farmers markets.
Any advice will be appreciated.
The Wild Oats was bought out by Whole Foods but they haven't changed the sign out front. Same concept but the prices are higher and the some departments (meat/produce) aren't as good as Wild Oats. It's still better then Publix (you can touch the veges) and it's on the way from the airport.
I like Jimbo's BBQ on W. Kennedy for breakfast. Just regular breakfast items but well prepared and reasonable.
I believe Silver Ring and La Tropicana in Ybor serve breakfast. There's also Arco Iris not far from the airport.
La Tropicana Cafe
1822 E 7th Ave, Tampa, FL 33605
Silver Ring Cafe
1430 E 7th Ave, Tampa, FL
3328 W Columbus Dr, Tampa, FL 33607
If you feel like stopping in St. Pete for breakfast, Red Mesa has pretty taste-e food with a southwest flavor. This is the only place in St. Pete where I drink the coffee - Columbian - rich and flavorful. You can search this board for opinions. They open at 9:00 and it's an easy hop off the freeway on your way to Longboat. Their menu is posted on the website to give you an idea http://www.redmesarestaurant.com/welc....
Another diner sort of place just off the freeway (5 mins) is Kissin Cuzzins' (951 34TH St N). Don't let the name scare you...they make a blackstone benedict to die for. My SO loves the hash brown casserole. Don't get the coffee unless you like it weak.
