Annex 400 Beach
This upscale yet family-friendly café is located on popular Beach Drive in downtown St. Pete. It opens early for coffee and offers a charming sidewalk café that serves quick countertop selections (think: eggs, waffles, bagels, croissants, soups and sandwiches) all while overlooking the quaint, gorgeous view of Straub Park and Tampa Bay. In the midst of food and local culture, the other half of the market focuses on the shopping portion of the venue; items range from Beach Drive souvenirs to clever, park-friendly picnic baskets packed with soccer balls, Frisbees, and snacks to take across the street for a festive afternoon. Sweet treats like soft-serve ice cream and homemade waffle cones are also available. Hours range from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
