The Best Brunch Restaurants in Tampa

The OpenTable Team

Narrowing down the best brunches in Tampa can be a difficult feat – mostly due to the diverse culinary offerings stemming from the cigar factory workers that immigrated in the 1880s. They brought the dining tastes of countries like Cuba, Germany, Italy, and Spain right to America’s doorstep, and the city has maintained its varied palate ever since. But where do those with the most demanding taste buds choose to feast in the city? Welcome to Tastemaker20. We’ve spent years compiling information from thousands of restaurants across the country just to discover where OpenTable’s most demanding diners love to frequent. Former Florida restaurants often focused on foods from the bayou, Deep South and Low Country. The 1980s saw a reemergence of Native American, Spanish and the ‘Cracker cuisine’ of would-be cowboys. Try out something special by booking one of these great brunch offerings today!
