Olga's Bakery and Deli

Reviewed By Richard F - Louisville, Kentucky

We stopped in Olga's for a afternoon treat. We thought about a doughnut but, then saw the Gingerbread Man Cookies and could not resist. We bought several and they were delicious. We'll go back but, next time it will be earlier in the day so we have better selections. They also serve a limited selection of sandwiches that we may try as well on our next visit.

Kafe Kokopelli

Located in Historic Downtown Dade City Florida, Kafe Kokopelli resides in a 101 year old red-brick, vine covered building that was constructed in 1916. Originally built as a Model-T Ford Sales and Service center it was home to the local Ford dealers until the mid 1970's. Saved a few months from demolition, the building was restored and converted to house what is now Kafe Kokopelli, a favorite of locals and visitors from all over the country.

Was introduced to this gem by friends of the owner and one of the servers; instantly fell in
love! Atmosphere is great, Decor is great-staff and patrons are friendly. Very fun on first Friday when there is live music and also a quiet brunch on Sunday. Any occasion is accommodated here. Food is fantastic. Haven’t had anything I didn’t like and my vegetarian family was happy as well! Will definitely frequent!

Lunch On Limoges

Reviewed By mdfloyd322 - Denver, Colorado

The four of us each had different meals and loved what we had. The service was fantastic with the owner stopping 3-4 times to be sure we were well fed. The general store ambiance is fun and we bought several travel items as well as birthday gifts.

We've been to Lunch on Limoge before and will certainly go again. Highly recommend.

A Matter of Taste

Reviewed By William W - St. Petersburg, Florida

We first had lunch here back in March and returned for our second visit today.

As before, the service, food and prices are very good. Large portions and a large selection of breakfast foods, sandwiches, hamburgers, salads, wraps, soup, and main entrees in addition to desserts.

Good place for a large group to go to as everyone should be able to find at leaster several items on the menu to their liking.

Francesco's

Reviewed By judithtjester

Used the reviews on Trip Advisor to find this restaurant. It was small, in a strip of shops and provided one of the best dinners we've had on this trip. Garlic knots were wonderful! Lasagna outstanding, ravoli great! Waiter Tim was professional, friendly and considerate. Don't miss this hidden gem.

Highly recommended, the menu is moderately price with a selection that would please anyone. This the real deal. There's a grocery and meat market attached. While the descriptions in the retail are in Spanish, I am sure someone could assist you. We'll return for more excellent food and service.

Coyote Rojo III

Reviewed By Lynn T - Dade City

We are blessed with an abundance of very good ethnic & specialty restaurants. Having enjoyed one of their other locations (Groveland) we were excited to see them here. Not disappointed! Tasty traditional Mexican fare served by an excellent staff in a transformed space. Amazing sculpted art on chairs & booths. Large families or solo are well cared for. The food choices are many, quality good. Lots more dishes to try!
