Surrounded by water you can imagine there is lots of water sporting and outdoor, waterfront dining. And in St. Pete, you will also find a booming art community (in the photo, that’s a giant mustache in front of the Dali museum!) and yep, lots of great plant based eats! Let’s check it out! St. Petersburg is a lovely sea and bayside town on the west coast of Florida. Basically the siamese twin to Tampa, just a jaunt over a cool bridge will get you to and from this bay area.
One of my favorite finds is the Taco Bus. With locations all over the Tampa/St. Pete area, it’s one of the best places for late night grub. The location I popped into was open until 4am and offered a slew a vegan options! Awesome tacos with fresh fillings, the food is great and the vibe is way cool! Converted school busses that serve yummy Mexican food? I’m all in!
Across the bridge in Tampa, The Independent Bar is worth the drive. What seems to be a converted gas station or mechanic shop is a fun bar serving up tasty beer and treats while also offering live music or sporting events in their projection room. If you have the chance to stop by, order the VLT, you won’t be disappointed ; )
