Where to Eat & Drink
Craft beer is a huge part of the culinary culture here in St. Pete/Clearwater and Palm Harbor contributes to the cause with several great local breweries. Stop in at de Bine Brewing Co. downtown on Florida Avenue for a delicious German Hefeweizen or have a “Soul Candy” milk stout at Stilt House Brewery right off the Pinellas Trail.
If you’re more about breakfast than brews, don’t miss the fresh, made-from-scratch treats at Palm Harbor’s Cosmic Donuts - with flavors like apple maple crumble and Samoa, you can’t go wrong. Not up that early? Palm Harbor has great lunch and dinner spots, too - including the hand-tossed, wood-fired pizzas at Fireside Pizza Cafe (sit at a table outside with your pup, if you wish). For burgers, seafood and sushi, check out the Thirsty Marlin, a fun, “old Florida-style” restaurant with outdoor seating as well as live entertainment. Enjoy fresh oysters - and some kitschy fun - at Molly Goodheads, a 170-year-old Florida Cracker-style house in itty-bitty Ozona, just south of Palm Harbor. After your meal, head to local fav Strachan’s Ice Cream for flavors such as carrot cake and Heath Bar Crunch.
