Food Feast Florida

As you might have noticed already – I am a foodie. I love food. There’s nothing bad about that, right? In my eyes, food is among the top three things there are on this planet. Imagine a steak melting slowly on your tongue. Isn’t that simply heavenly? As I love food (I mentioned that already, I know!) I want it to start my day with me, so breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Especially when in the US, I love to celebrate breakfast. No matter how short my stay is, Pancakes, Bagels and Eggs Benedict are a must! I even accept the complimentary muddy water they serve as coffee. (No offense!)

Tampa Bay Food Heaven

So, I got lucky and went to Tampa Bay (Florida) for 5 days. During this period of time I tried to eat as much and as good as I could. And as the food just looked so fantastic, I took a photograph of each and every meal I had. Now I know that you can’t taste the food now, but at least you can have a close look at it and it just looks AWESOME (one of the most used words in the US these times). A pretty mouth-watering experience!

The Best Food Places in Tampa Bay

After seeing all of these fabulous meals I can understand that you’ve already booked a flight to Tampa. So I will give you a short overview on the places I most enjoyed the food and ambiance. Just follow this guide and you’ll be more than fine, namely fat and happy!

A good place to get your beach-day started. Unfortunately you can just sit inside. (Which is perfectly alright for the Americans among you, I know!)

A place to see and be seen. And eat, eat, eat fresh and lovely bread. I was told the ice-cream and sweets are tasty too!

Eating lunch at a huge hotel. Really? Really! The lobster Mac’n’Cheese will reassure you!

A historic place with a lot of charme and the best She-Crab-Soup you’ll get!

Eating gator and dancing to Reggae music under the silvery moon – slick!

A true diner with fabulous breakfast and tasty bacon. And more bacon!

A big, loud place where you get an impression of how much hispanic influence lies in Ybor city.

Wine and dine! They even have Austrian wine on their menu. And some kick-ass starters too!

The highlight of the week: Oxford Exchange was once part of the Tampa Bay Hotel – now it is the prettiest place to get breakfast, tea, books or gifts. As we Austrians tend to say: “I’ll be back”.

Cassis

What should we get at Cassis? Hard decision!

The fancy cakes remind me of Paris and Vienna!
