Breakfast in Tampa?

beetlebug Feb 2, 2012 02:09 PM

I've been researching lunch and dinner places in Tampa. I haven't seen any recommendations for breakfast in Tampa, only St. Petersburg. Anything chow worthy in Tampa proper? I'm at the Intercontinental. Specifically, I'm looking for Friday am breakfast.

Thanks.

      It turned out that I didn't have access to a car. so, I walked to the strip mall next door to the Starbucks for a breakfast sandwich. It was fine but nothing I couldn't have gotten at home.

          Actually, the second day, we went to the Taco Bus for breakfast. I got non-breakfast tacos though and greatly enjoyed them.

          I personally enjoy Pach's Place in South Tampa for breakfast. Quality breakfast at an affordable price: http://www.pachsplace.com/pachs/index...

            Thanks carloseats for your feedback and the link as well so that I can quickly review. I will be staying in the Hyatt Downtown with a car.

            Are there any places that serve breaky that dont serve the traditional pancakes and egg places that anyone can recommend?

                Thanks again carloseats! I haven't been back to Tampa for a few good years and will be hitting up the city hard so breakie will have to fix my ill adivsed night before night caps. Any good grease places for those mornings where you've had one too many?

                  Normally I can't take too much after a night where I've had too many without getting sick. I normally will just differ to IHOP for a grease soak lol.
