Himes Breakfast House is our new morning obsession at 3826 South Himes Avenue. This brand new Tampa restaurant features griddle specialties like thick cut French Toast topped with fresh fruit, and savory buttermilk pancakes — and huge thanks to Creative Loafing for putting this spot on our radar. You can read their story here.

In addition to traditional favorites, this restaurant also offers up hearty Country Fried Steak with sausage and gravy, and a morning bowl with vanilla Greek yogurt, fresh granola, banana, and blueberry poppy maple syrup.


If you’re in the mood for big old fashioned biscuits, and a wide array of eggs Benedicts, then you’re in the right place. For those with a sweet tooth, consider the banana split waffle your new go-to menu item.

The restaurant originally opened at the end of December, and it’s now a celebrated part of South Tampa.
