Waking up early on weekends is for the birds – and that’s why brunch was invented. Kill two hunger pangs with one stone, and try out one of these delicious new spots in Tampa, Florida, to satisfy your breakfast or lunch cravings.
Rome + Fig
From elevated takes on classics like a two-egg breakfast with filet tips or duck fat biscuits and maple sausage gravy to contemporary options like a smoked salmon Benedict or avocado toast with poached eggs and a balsamic drizzle, Rome + Fig’s brunch menu is small but mighty. Join them on their cute and comfy outdoor patio or in their sleek, plant-adorned dining room. Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 AM to 3 PM
With European-trained chef Chris Ponte at the helm, brunching at Olivia delights all the senses. Each Instagram-worthy dish is masterfully prepared and artistically plated—it’s no wonder the restaurant has earned 4.5 out of 5 stars among 380 reviews on Yelp. Stop in to try their brunch specialties like orange blossom pancakes, baked eggs al forno with pancetta and spicy nduja, and unique breakfast pizzas—including smoked salmon with bagel crust or steak and duck egg. Visit Olivia for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 AM to 3 PM
From Wagyu with eggs to a pork BBQ Benedict to a sweet chia poke bowl, the brunch menu at Haiku is unlike any you’ll encounter elsewhere. This Asian-fusion hot spot downtown offers brunch from 11 AM to 3 PM Saturdays and Sundays, complete with $20 bottomless mimosas and a live DJ. Yelpers say come for the wings and tuna tartare but skip the ramen.
