Tampa brunch spots continue to get national recognition. The Oxford Exchange was recently named a top brunch staple in Tampa Bay by Toast. Now Psomi, a spot prominently featured on the Florida MICHELIN Guide, is getting some love. Yelp included it in its “100 Best Brunch Spots in America” guide.

Psomi remains a proverbial brunch favorite in Tampa. Owned and run by second-generation Greek-American Christina Theofilos, this daytime eatery and bakery epitomizes warmth and comfort. The menu is laced with Greek items ranging from flavorful and tender octopus ceviche to house-made dolmades that display an added level of care. Of course, with a name that translates to bread, there must be baked goods and you’ll find it all here.
