Top Review:“Can Tampa be wrong about Mamas? Nope open till 3 on Sunday. Stopped in for brunch – extensive menu waffles, pancakes, skillets with some interesting twists, meat lovers with bacon, ham,sausage, and gyro meat. Lots of sandwich options for lunch, salads. Mimosa, beer, bloody Mary’s. We tried the gyro skillet, very good. Taziki on the side, gyro meat chopped up with well done onions. Tried the French toast burger, which was good for those liking the sweet n savory. Overall Mammas for the win” – Karen S.
Top Review:“I ate my food too fast I didn’t even get my picture! Ordered country fried steak and Belgium waffle! The country fried steak was great and it came with eggs and home fries. The sausage gravy was to die for. The country fried steak was crispy and well seasoned. The home fries were well seasoned but could have used some more time cooking. Great meal! My only complaint is that the serving size was small. Definitely in the smaller side for country fried steak. However the waffle with their homemade vanilla bean espresso maple syrup. Life changing!!! Highly recommend checking this place out!” – Therese T.
Top Review:“I’m not a big breakfast person unless I’m hungover but I really wanted to try this out based on the reviews. I was afraid of the wait because I had to get to the office and I found out you could text them your order. I was surprised you could do this for a food truck. They also have a special of a $1.50 off a drink if you order before 10. The sandwiches were great and the iced coffee. They have a punch card but since i’m not from the area no need to take one. Team was really friendly. I recommend for everyone to check this place out for breakfast!” – Valerie N.
Shelly’s Cafe is a pleasant destination for folks craving a classic breakfast and a cozy environment. Topped with fresh fruits and powdered sugar, Shelly’s French Toast is a great choice for any occasion that calls for something sweet. Order a veggie omelet with fresh fruit and caramel sauce on the side for a hearty and healthy treat.
Top Review: “I can’t believe I never knew about this place! I was nervous to go during lunch time on a Sunday since it is usually a busy time for brunch but we were able to get right in and receive our food quickly. The sandwich pancake was honestly the best breakfast sandwich I’ve ever had. I literally can’t stop thinking about it. Just something about the cheese on the pancake with eggs and ham is a combination I never knew I needed. I will definitely be back again to try more! Everything looked so delicious, service was great, and prices were awesome. I would definitely recommend checking it out!” – Darby C.
Top Review:“Super delicious breakfast! Fresh baked biscuits, tasty gravy! I got the eggs, chicken fried steak and biscuit (first photo) and I devoured it quickly! Wife got the eggs & biscuit with the gravy on the side. Coffees were tasty. We sat outside as the weather was so nice. They have biscuits with icing and I grabbed a dozen to give to my dog’s allergy veterinarian & his staff. They loved the biscuits!” – Fritz E.
Dive into a mouth-watering bowl of scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, corn, black beans, jalapenos, tomatoes, and turkey sausage with their popular Breakf-iesta Bowl, topped with cheese sauce, smashed avocado and scallion..
Top Review:“Stumbled on the Daily Eats when looking for a quick dinner option! I love diners and Daily Eats was super cute. Parking is pretty easy to find nearby in a lot or on the street. There’s seating indoors and outdoors and we were seated almost immediately, even at peak dinnertime. I had the Fiesta Bowl which was absolutely delicious with lots of cheese and good heat. We also shared an order of French toast which was also made super well and dusted with powdered sugar. I love the breakfast all day and also more typical diner lunch/dinner options. Would definitely visit again next time in Tampa!” – Megha D.
Top Review:“Best Cuban bread anywhere. Worth a drive across the bridge, glad to see more locations than Ybor now, it saves a little time. Awesome guava pastries, apple turnover, individual pineapple upside down and Boston Cream! I prefer the flake meat pies, but empanadas are also very good. Goes without saying the Cuban toast, cafe con leche…or Cuban sandwich are tops. We’re lifetime customers, multi generational tampanians…#1 for their specialty items!” – Annie C.
Top Review:“My family and I were greeted by the owner before reaching the door. Inside, the energy is high, and my son was thrilled to get a free snack (bag of chips). We ordered shrimp & grits and chocolate chip waffles for out little one. The food was prepared quickly and incredibly fresh. The amount of food on our plate was mode than I expected. We’ll definitely be back.” – Desarae P.
Top Review:“Dale Mabry has a TON of options, but this place is a must try! My wife recommend it as a brunch spot and did not disappoint. We ordered ahead due to time constraints and feasted on a variety of options. All of the food was packed with flavor and was paired well with a mimosa. 10/10 would recommend!” – Jean G.
Top Review:“Really impressed and excited that Tampa’s historic Latin quarter can celebrate the presence of such a phenomenal creperie. The atmosphere is always inviting, the staff is pleasant, and the food is stellar. You can call me a semi-regular if you’d like as I love to have brunch here with my friends a few times each year. My personal favorite savory crepe is “La Prima” with tomatoes – highly recommended !!” – Tyler Z.
