Check out Watercolor Grillehouse at the Marriott on Sand Key Beach

??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ HEY Pinellas County!!

Depending on where you live in the county, a truck to the beach can sometimes be daunting (especially at high traffic times).. BUT, if you time it right and want to experience something refreshing and delicious, I suggest you try Watercolour Grillehouse! This renowned restaurant is located inside the Marriott hotel on Sandkey beach.

Whether you are staying at the hotel or not, a perfect day may include a picnic and walk on the famous Sand key beach in Sand Key Park AND afterwards, a lovely lunch or dinner at the Watercolour Grillehouse, located directly across the street from the park.

The cuisine is American and they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Besides the variety and wonderful food offerings on their menu, the views are breathtaking over Clearwater intercostal waterways.

If you haven’t eaten there, I highly recommend to give it a whirl ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Check Out Thai Town in Dunedin!

??‍♀️??‍♀️Thai food is one of my favorites! I’m vegan and I can ALWAYS count on a variety of choices from a Thai food menu for my liking?

While there are several choices around town for a good Thai meal, my favorite WITHOUT A DOUBT is Thai Town in Dunedin located on S.R. 580.

They offer the traditional selections, check out their menu HERE. BUT…. they have the absolutely BEST wait staff. Anna?, who normally waits on me is such a gem. Such is not only gracious, consciousness, but she is beyond genuine and such a sweet sweet person. She remembers my order and I don’t have to say a word. All it takes is a nod of the head and WOW, my meal is served quickly, is hot and served with a smile.

Thank you Thai Town for such a great place in our city?!!!!

Check out Shaker and Peel in Oldsmar!

This past Wednesday, I had a friend ask me to come out and meet her for dinner. She suggested "Shaker and Peel".... Well, I hadn't heard of it but always open to try a new place and WOW! was I glad that I met her.

We sat at the bar and were very well taken care of by the bartender. He was prompt to ask for our drink order and was happy to answer our questions about the menu. I tried the veggie bowl and it was chalk full of flavors and fresh tasting. Check out their menu HERE.

If you are looking for something new to try and love a great atmosphere and tasty food, I highly recommend visiting Shaker and Peel.

Everyone’s Favorite, Frenchy’s Original Cafe

There aren’t too many people that haven’t heard of Frenchy’s cafe! It has been not only a tourist but local hot spot for many years!

The original location on Mandalay Ave. and Baymont Street is a must stop for Clearwater beach goers. They are famous for their fresh grouper sandwiches and peanut butter pie????… The restaurant is small and quaint and houses a small bar where chat it up while enjoying an ice cold beer!

Growing up here, Frenchy’s has long been a household name and was ALWAYS where my mom wanted to go for a special treat for lunch and dinner.

If by chance you have never been there or haven’t heard of it, I highly suggest a trip to north Clearwater beach and a stop off at Frenchy’s Original Cafe. Check out their menu HERE.

By the way, they have multiple locations in the area and all have a little something different to offer. CHECK IT OUT!!

Check out Revelations Cafe in Lutz!

Last weekend, on my way to explore property in the Lutz area, I happened upon this gem! It was Friday night, getting late, and popped in to Revelations cafe for a quick bite to eat where they offer a “healthy vegetarian and plant based menu that fills your body and spirit.”

I was WOWED immediately with the quaint and welcoming atmosphere of the cafe. You can find their menu just inside the front door where you can ponder their many offerings. It was difficult for me to decide what to order as everything looked so yummy. I opted for the CITRUS-SOY GLAZED TOFU BOWL After ordering at the counter, you simply place your number on the table and your food is promptly delivered.

My tofu bowl was Sooooo delicious! So much so that I came back on Sunday to try the vegan tofu scramble. The food was simple, clean and yummy! Check out the menu HERE. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend that you try Revalations Cafe in Lutz!

Check out this great Sport’s pub!

??‍♀️??‍♀️Looking for a great spot to meet up with friends to watch the latest sport game? Well, I have found the perfect spot. Courtside Grille, located in St. Petersburg.

Courtside Grille is an upscale sports restaurant offering an extremely wide variety of food selections including the traditional burgers, wings and fries plus tons of appetizer selections and EVEN sushi!!? Check out their menu HERE. They also cater events to keep them in mind for your next planned gathering and leave the cooking to them.

The location is a perfect spot to meet in the middle of north county and south county, so keep this in mind next time when you are looking for a meeting spot.

If you haven’t tried Courtside Grille, I highly recommend it!

Check out this gem!

Would you ever think that you could get your own little slice of Hawaii right here in Pinellas County? Well then….. you probably haven’t been to Ohana Cafe in Dunedin!

You are kindly greeted at the door upon entering with a friendly “Aloha”? and invited to sit wherever you want to. The wait help are pleasant and always greet you with a great big smile.?

They stand by their promise of making all of their food fresh daily, from scratch with LOVE! They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and serve all of the menu items all day long.

Their proteins are always antibiotic, hormone and nitrate free and their dairy products are organic and/or hormone free. My absolute favorite are the vegan tacos ???!!

Don’t take my word for it! Check out their menu HERE and if you haven’t stopped by Ohana Cafe on S.R. 580, make it your next lunch stop. You will thank me!

Check out Golden Dinosaur in Gulfport!! All Vegan and you won’t know it!

As some of you may know or not know, I have been vegan now for 6 years! It started as a new-years resolution and it STUCK! It was so much easier than you may think….

I’m always searching for good restaurants that offer vegan options. It was a bit of a drive for me (from north county) but last weekend I drove down to Gulfport to check out Golden Dinosaur and was I ever WOWED!!! They make their seitan fresh daily and create wonderful dishes out of it. If you don’t know, Seitan is the base for many commercially available vegetarian products such as Tofurky deli slices, meatless frankfurters, fakin’ bacon, and others. You can generally find it in a variety of styles, such as ground, in slices, or in strips.

Golden Dinosaur was cozy, friendly and LOCAL! Check out their menu HERE!

For something different and off the beaten path, I highly recommend that you visit the little town of Gulfport and have lunch or dinner at the Golden Dinosaur.

Secret hide away Pizza joint?

??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️One of my best friend’s birthday was yesterday and she suggested that we go to Hackett’s on the Causeway! She lives out on the Dunedin causeway and near the restaurant; I had never even heard of it.

And OH BOY! Was I surprised to find this little gem, nestled away at the corner of Alt 19 and Curlew Rd. (southeast corner). They have a lot of healthy options for appetizers, salads and homemade pizzas and even have a breakfast menu. I would direct you to their website, but unfortunately was unable to get it to load properly! Hopefully, it will be up and running soon.

?Regardless, I would recommend that you check out this place for a delightful treat. They have indoor and outdoor seating?

Long time sushi favorite?

??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️This past weekend, I wanted to take my son out to dinner to a place that I knew he would appreciate and love. It only took a second before I decided upon Pisces Sushi and Global Bistro in downtown Dunedin.

I’ve been following the owner and chef, James Keene, around since he opened his original location several years back, located on S.R. 580, near U.S. 19 in Clearwater, FL. At the time, he and his wife brought the quiet plaza to life in a BIG way! I have to believe that he brought business to all of the surrounding shops within the plaza.

The restaurant was an immediate hit and brought a whole new name to sushi. James concocted fresh food combinations to roll up as a sushi roll that just hadn’t been thought of before this time.

They eventually moved their location to downtown Dunedin, Florida and their customer base exploded!

Their menu features such items named the “shaggy dog”, “bubba gump”, “pink panther” and “Dunedin’s Dream”. Click HERE for their full menu.

Even if you are not a “sushi person”, you will love this restaurant! If you haven’t been there, I highly suggest that you give it a try. Let me know when you are going and I will meet you there?
