The wait is finally over, Trip’s Diner has opened its doors in Seminole Heights. The breakfast/lunch hotspot, which began in St. Pete in 2012, opened its third location at 6416 North Florida Avenue in mid-July.

Breakfast all day in the neighborhood on the rise 

Those interested in pancakes the size of hub caps, legendary eggs Benedict, and, excuse us, damn fine apple crisp would do well to visit soon. The not-too-fancy neighborhood restaurant is named after the owner’s triplets: Libby, Will and John.
