As a Tampa business owner I love frequenting our local breakfast restaurants. Skip your breakfast, and there’s a chance that you’d either be cranky the whole day or you’d feel awfully tired. Who would want that kind of feeling? However, if you’re too busy to prepare a homemade breakfast, don’t worry, there are a lot of restaurants here in Tampa that prepare the best breakfast meals you can ask for. I often get asked by new residents about breakfast places in the area that I’d recommend, here are some of them.
9 of the Most Amazing Breakfast Eateries in Tampa
1. Yolk, White & Associates
Location: Yolk, White & Associates
The Yolk, White & Associates is a food truck in the park, not your typical office building cafeteria, where they serve odd-tasting food. Here, they serve the best omelets you can ask for.
No doubt about that, because they’re like a firm of professional egg makers. However, if you’re craving pancakes or meats, this place might not be for you as their focus is mostly eggs. Also, make sure that you bring cash with you before visiting this place as they have a CASH ONLY policy. That means they wouldn’t accept your cards.
2. Oxford Exchange Restaurant
Location: Oxford Exchange Restaurant
Whenever you’re in need of some tasty food, tea, or you just want to hang out in a place where the atmosphere is cozy and lovely then you should head to Oxford Exchange. Not only do they serve good breakfast meals, the employees are also very nice and helpful. For the tea, there’s a wide variety for you to try and each of them are delicious. Aside from breakfast, they also serve lunch and the experience you’d have is exquisite.
There’s also a bookstore in the front of this restaurant and the books you’re going to find here are rare finds because you wouldn’t easily find them anywhere else. Overall, if you’re into delicious tea, great atmosphere, and wonderful food Oxford Exchange is definitely for you!
3. Daily Eats Restaurant
Location: Daily Eats Restaurant
If you’re along Howard Avenue, then you should drop by at Daily Eats Restaurant and have a hearty breakfast! However, we do recommend that you go there before 9 am or you’d have to wait for a table, as this place is always packed. As for the food, they cook the best tasting fries and eggs.
4. First Watch Restaurant
Location: First Watch Restaurant
First Watch Restaurant takes pride in having freshly-prepared breakfast creations. They make sure that they only use the best ingredients for breakfast, brunch, and dinner that would make the customers feel fully satisfied. Also, unlike other places that use deep fryers and heat lamps they cook their meals the old-fashioned way. The best part? Their menu features traditional favorites, such as salads, pancakes, omelets, and sandwiches.
Truth be told, once you had a taste of Datz it can be difficult to find a place that offers fresh and inventive cuisine just like Datz. This is what makes Datz stand out among its competitors. Stop in for breakfast during the weekends and you’ll be able to enjoy their “Weekend Warriors” menu items such as Red Velvet Pancakes, Huevos Rancheros, Eggs Barbacoa, and many more!
Moxie’s is another wonderful restaurant that you can find in Downtown Tampa. Whether you love your breakfast cold, or you prefer something hot, rest assured that Moxie’s have both. Moxie’s menu is very diversified to ensure that it would satisfy anyone’s breakfast cravings. You can enjoy old-fashioned breakfast meals, such as smoked bacon, scrambled eggs, and oven roasted potatoes. Let’s not forget the Cuban buttered toast that’s very tasty! If you have a sweet tooth, you can try their peanut butter parfait with sliced bananas, creamy vanilla yogurt, honey, granola, and peanut butter and jelly. We’re going to bet that just by reading this, you’re already starting to drool!
7. Cracker Barrel Restaurant
Location: Cracker Barrel Restaurant
The Cracker Barrel Restaurant is a family restaurant. The menu specializes in Country American and they serve the best pancakes, biscuit, and fried steak. Honestly, everything is great about this place, including the customer service.
Additionally, this restaurant also has children’s and ladies’ clothes with a country flair, affordable prices, and they also have toys for the kids! It’s definitely a great place for everyone.
8. Burger Theory Restaurant
Location: Burger Theory Restaurant
The Burger Theory Restaurant is the jewel in the center of Holiday Inn. They have the best customer service, and the meals are being cooked up professionally, but the homemade feel is still there. It’s not only good for breakfast, but it can also be a must-go destination because of the dance space and music. Everyone can really have a great time here. This isn’t your typical fast food place, as it’s more of a neat little bar that has a great potential waiting to be found.
9. Pop N Sons Diner Restaurant
Location: Pop N Sons Diner Restaurant
When you’re in Tampa, Pop N Sons Diner Restaurant is one of the places to go to and you’ll have the guarantee of enjoying a perfect Tampa breakfast. Another wonderful thing about this place is it’s located close to the Tampa stadium hotel. Also, if you’re into the 50s and 60s feel, then you’d say that this place is a treasure, as it would feel like you just hopped in a time machine. What more can you ask for? It really is good stuff.
Breakfast is a very important meal of the day and if you want to start your day right, having a good breakfast is definitely the way to go.
