Today’s new eat was at Cali! I am having so much fun adventuring around and trying new places. My parents came to visit me at school and I’ve been wanting to try this restaurant as it’s only 10 minutes away from my apartment. I was super excited to try this place. Cali is a breakfast and lunch restaurant with several locations around Florida.
Right when you walk in you get a taste of their atmosphere. It’s light, bright, and cheery, reminding me a lot of a small café, but obviously had a bit more of a restaurant feel to it. The environment was super laid back and felt a lot like a small community restaurant, even though we are in the Tampa area. I must mention it’s super trendy and cute! Both indoor and outdoor seating areas are cute for pictures! The staff was also very friendly! They have some indoor and outdoor seating and a large to go order area. We got to sit in their outdoor seating which had live music! I thought that was so cool. I’m not sure I have ever been to a restaurant that serves brunch style food with live music! That definitely added points to the chart. It was also perfect weather today to sit outside. Fall weather in Florida is unbeatable! So it’s a must to sit outside in the gorgeous weather. They also have heaters outside for when it gets a bit more chilly!
It was an overall great experience at Cali, I will definitely be back! There menu was abundant with delicious choices, I had such a hard time deciding. I was super excited when I noticed they they had lots of customizations and options for vegetarians and vegans. Going to restaurants I often have minimal options because on top of being vegetarian, I am a picky vegetarian. I got the “lil hungry” which was two eggs cooked to your liking with 2 of their ginger apple pancakes (SOOOO GOOD) and potatoes! My parents both got the California Club Wrap with avocado humus on the side. If you are near any of their locations I recommend trying it out!
Side note! After my initial visit, I have been back several times! I love the food and the atmosphere it was hard not to come back. Since then I have also tried the spicy rio burrito and the power avo sandwich! The spicy rio burrito was delicious. I didn’t really think it was actually that spicy and I got it with a side of fries. The power avo sandwich was good as well but it was my least favorite thing I have tried so far. In my personal opinion, I would get no salsa on the sandwich, it made the bread a bit soggy.
Cali is located right in the entrance of the beautiful Tampa Palms area of New Tampa. Tampa Palms is a gorgeous master plan community and there is so much to do around this area. If you are looking for moving help in Tampa, I highly recommend going with MT. Zion Moving & Storage LLC. They are a great local Tampa moving company! Mt. Zion Moving provides so many different services, even long distance moving. Head over to there website to check out all that they have to offer. My personal favorite service they provide is apartment moving. As I live in an apartment right now, I feel many places don’t provide the service of moving from one apartment to another, which is why I think these services are super useful.
There are several other great restaurants and stores right in the same plaza! A few doors down is the bean bar coffee co. I’ve only been once but it’s super cute inside and has great chai tea!
It’s always fun to get out and explore the new area around you. Finding all these new fun restaurants and places to visit is so exciting and I can’t wait to share more. Looking for other fun places to visit around Tampa? Click HERE!
