Where You Should Eat in Tarpon Springs

Here are our favorite places to eat in our hometown. Most of them are walkable from our house.


  • Rodie’s: Located south of downtown on Alt-19, Rodie’s is our favorite breakfast place. The staff are great and so is the food. We love the classic skillet (pictured).

  • Daybreak Café: Located north of town on Alt-19, Daybreak Café is our go-to if we’re heading north. They have outside seating options.

  • Bayou Café: Tucked away on Tarpon Ave., Bayou Café has classic breakfasts. The building it’s in is very cool as well.


  • Johnny’s: Johnny’s is basically a sports bar, so it’s good for lunch or dinner. It has an expansive menu with a lot of munchy-type food and an outdoor bar.

  • Capt’n Jacks: This restaurant has only outdoor (some covered) seating and is right on the Anclote River. It’s huge and has plenty of parking.

  • Mr. Souvlaki: Located between the Sponge Docks and downtown, we’ve found Mr. Souvlaki to be our favorite Greek food in town. We often walk over for lunch. I love the open-faced gyro (pictured).


  • Jojo’s: This Italian diner is Italian comfort food at its finest. They get their sauces from Italy. They have specials where they try to highlight a particular menu item or ingredient. My favorite is when they do vodka sauce.

  • H’ours: This restaurant has fantastic food. It’s mostly creole and a bit spicy (to me), but you’re guaranteed delicious food, layers of flavor, and awesome service, especially if you have Todd.

  • The Bistro: Formerly Tuscan Sun, the Bistro has expanded from being Italian to being more Mediterranean. Sit outside on the Pinellas Trail and watch the bikers go by.

  • Morgan Mae’s: We’re lucky because this is probably the closest restaurants to our house. The decorations are awesome, and the seafood is even better!
