Check out Pan Y Vino in Downtown Dunedin!

Do you ever get a craving for an expensive tasting gourmet pizza with all the fixings that isn’t expensive? If yes, then WOW, do I have a place to recommend to you.

Pan Y Vino in Downtown Dunedin is a brick oven pizza and wine bar with a Mediterranean influence. Their pizzas are made to order and they have plenty of gluten free and vegan options as well (that makes me happy) ????? All pizzas are one size which makes ordering easy peasy… Choose from the many many toppings that they as well. Check out their FB page HERE. My personal Fav on the menu is the mediterranean style, vegan style, gourmet pizza.

The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable with low lighting and window seating to view the passer-bys on Main Street downtown. It’s location is right downtown, smack in the middle of all that Dunedin, FL has to offer. If you haven’t been, I would suggest stopping in for a wonderful experience and great food!

Super Cool Off the Beaten Path – Ozona Pizza

Last Friday evening I was SO feeling like I wanted pizza for dinner! Do you ever just get a taste for something specific like that?

I got on my phone and started searching for something different, somewhere I haven’t been AND because I’m vegan, I naturally wanted to find a place that offered vegan options at least.

WELL….. I happened upon a small, quaint little pizza shop in Ozona that was simply fabulous! I couldn’t believe the vegetarian, vegan and even gluten free options that they offered. In fact, there were more gluten free, vegan options that NON vegan options on their menu. I was also surprised that they have been in business for 11 years and this was my first time trying them.

The very first thing I had to try on the menu were their vegan garlic knots that were absolutely amazing. The pizza was made to order (which took a little while), but just knowing it was being freshly made made it worth the wait.

Click HERE for their menu.

I highly recommend trying out Ozona Pizza; you can pick-up, eat-in and they also deliver locally. Not to mention that the town of Ozona is super cool all in itself.

Check out Grillsmith

When I’m feeling social and by myself, Grillsmith is my favorite go-to to grab a bite to eat (lunch or dinner). Their menu offers a variety of American style food including a large selection of chicken, steak and fish dishes, flatbreads, appetizers and salads.

My favorite is the tuscan kale and pear salad. WOW! Is it Yummy!… For me, I order it minus the bacon bits because I do my best to stick to a plant based diet only. There is something for everyone.

The Countryside location recently renovated the decor and it now has a trendy, sleek vibe that is very inviting. I personally love to post up at the bar to strike up conversation with other patrons or the bartender.

If you haven’t been, I suggest trying it out. You won’t be disappointed….

Check out The Green Table Restaurant in Palm Harbor

One of my long time favorites was a little place tucked away in a plaza with a gas station by the name of Consciousness Blossom. Everything on their menu was either vegetarian or vegan.

Well…… Consciousness eventually sold but took great pride to sell to a couple that would continue to offer their popular menu items like “neat loaf” and “the joy burger”. The new restaurant is THE GREEN TABLE and…… oh man, I like it better now than I did before.

They offer the same great popular items from the old place and also offer new, trending items daily. One of my current favorites, for example, is the “MACK STACK”, which is their version of the McDonald’s Big Mack BUT totally vegan. It is out of this world.

If you were ever considering cleaning up your diet and would like to try some awesome vegan food, then the Green Table is a great place to start! Let me know if you are going and I will meet you there!!
