Where to Eat in St. Petersburg FL:
Pacific Counter – This is a great spot to go if you’re traveling alone and want to just grab something to eat quickly. Plus the fish was super fresh and yummy!
The Lure – This was a super hip tapas restaurant that I loved. If you can get the pork belly with mac and cheese tapas, you might die and go to heaven. I also loved the fig flatbread.
Armature Works – OMG this place was soooo amazing. I really wish we had something similar in Boise. This one’s in Tampa and is right off of the riverwalk that we biked down. It has just about every kind of food, drink or dessert you could ever want. I saw a lot of people working and having coffees here and it seemed like the perfect place to get work done or hang out.
Intermezzo – I didn’t go here, but had about 100 people tell me I had to go! Clearly a winner.
Maple Biscuits– This place looked bomb.com. I walked inside and knew I needed to come back here for breakfast biscuits. A few different people recommend this place to me as well!
St. Pete Beach bars – There are a ton of bars that line the beach and most are part of hotels. If you want a fun night on the beach, go to the bars on this side of town.
Karma Juice Bar & Eatery – I went here about 4x while I was in St. Pete. It was a great spot to grab a juice, salad and sandwich. Plus, everything is healthy and it’s super popular with the locals.
Bodega – When in Florida, eat a Cuban Sandwich. Head here for an authentic and amazing cuban sando.
