Pizza Haven is right behind the Walgreens in Brandon off of 60 and Parsons. If you know where the Subway is it is in that plaza. There is a Puerto Rican grocery store next door where I believe they get all of their fresh meats from.


As for seating, there are a few sitting areas but it really is more for take out IMO. Still, the pizza is amazing but it is greasy so for those into a real crispy crust might want to avoid. But again, the toppings are so fresh it might be worth taking a chance. The people who work there rock as well. They are so nice.

Grass Roots on Florida Avenue, just north of downtown Tampa.

Also, there is a GREAT Etheopian restaurant, Queen of Sheba, on Henderson Blvd in South Tampa(just south of Swann Ave)...many vegetarian specialities and VERY good.

Plus, a vege friend of mine enjoys this site: Tampa Bay Vegetarians

During a recent visit to Tampa, I had a great (non-vegetarian) meal at BT restaurant in Hyde Park, they seem to have a very decent vegetarian selection on their menu.

Been to Rick's. Took DH there for a very casual Father's Day a few years ago. Pretty good wings! Crispy on the outside, nicely done on the inside but not dry. Sauce? Perfect.

Prices are very reasonable for what they offer.

Vallarta's Mexican Restaurant on North Dale Mabry is one of my favorite lunch spots. Great buffet offerings and I love their chairs!

Ballyhoo's on Ehrlich (actually Gunn that turns into Ehrlich) has terrific crab soup and an excellent grouper sandwich.

Not all vegetarian, but (first in Florida) all organic with a wide selection of vegetarian food on the menu: The WaterWitch in Gulfport. Home Page Open for B/L/D, closed mondays. It's simply delicious, right on the Gulfport Beach/Playground Area.

Bern's is our fav restaurant here....and 2 out of 3 of us are vegetarians! Regardless that we don't eat steak that place is delicious, and be sure to go to the dessert room upstairs.

Otherwise Tampa is severely lacking in good restaurants (which offer good service!).

Byblos Cafe serves Lebanese/Mediterranean (alot of veg. options) and is really good, with great service. Its in South Tampa.

Acropolis and Laughing Cat in Ybor have veg. options and good food.

Grass Roots has good food and ok service. Its worth it for the veg menu.

IMO many of the waterfront restaurants are lacking in the food and in the service dept (Landrys, Collonade, just to name a few) which is too bad b/c they offer a beautiful view.
