The most eggs-ellent breakfast in Tampa, no yolk. This restaurant is no rotten egg. Another great foodie spot hatches in Tampa. Nest debut goes over easy. OK, now that the egg puns are out of our system, we’re happy to announce The Nest Neighborhood Kitchen has grand opened in Tampa.
The concept is cozy enough for a long breakfast feast, but efficient enough to provide ample early morning to-go options. Nest is the brainchild of Mike Vitilli, Perry Dube, Brendan Crampton and George Tsambis.
The ordering process here is made simple with tablets for customers to punch in their orders. So, what’s on the menu here?
French Toast Nuggets. You read that correct. These crunchy, maple-flavored bites are the stuff daydreams are made of. Each piece features a signature corn flake crust and is served with maple blueberry syrup.
Want to protein pack before you get on the grind or start your weekend? Go with a Hercules bowl — and yes, it’s as powerful as it sounds. The bowl is filled with house-made spicy chicken sausage, cage free scrambled eggs, quinoa, feta, roasted mushrooms, fresh spinach and grape tomatoes.
Of course, when you’re on the go, the standard is a hearty breakfast sandwich. The Nest has 8 to choose from, but the two that stick out to use are the Disco Pig and the EggOne3.
The Disco Pig is stacked with candied maple bacon, arugula, pimento cheese and grape tomatoes on a toasted brioche bun.
Dialing EggOne3. This testament to Tampa features applewood smoked bacon, cage free scrambled eggs, chives, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, house ketchup and spicy mayo on a toasted brioche bun.
The Nest offers Impossible Burgers, too, for vegan diners.
Sides include staples like crispy house potatoes, quinoa, fresh fruit salad, spinach and arugula salad, cheese grits and black beans.
Oh yea, they have Rosé and Prosecco on tap. Coffee is brewed fresh daily if you’re aiming for a quick caffeine kick.
The Nest is located at 2217 South Dale Mabry Highway. The restaurant opens at 6am Monday through Friday, 7am on Saturday and 8am on Sunday. Closing hours are flexible at the moment. We advise getting there early, at least for now.
