I lived in St. Petersburg, Florida for 2 years! It is my heart! I love it there!
During my time there, I was the definition of a broke college student (well...I still am).
Here are some places I LOVE and won't brake your bank account!
Here is a list of my favorite restaurants in St. Pete!
***Remember this is a tourist town, so everything is expensive... These are just really tasty and on the cheaper side.
***These are in a random order
If you like a good Cuban sandwich, this place is for you! The also have delicious freshly squeezed juices and smoothies made to order! They make them right in front of you!
2. Karma Juice Bar & Eatery
Of all of the places listed this is the most expensive. But! It is so worth it! This a vegan restaurant that makes acai bowls, fresh juices, and a lot of other foods! I've only ever had their bowls, but I can tell you they are to die for! Yumm!
Okay! Snow cones are my favorite dessert! There's something so special about shaved ice! The small is $3 for 3 flavors! Pretty good deal! They make all their flavors in house - my favorites are passion fruit and natural lemon! They also have spiked snowballs with alcohol!
4. Caddy's on the Beach, Gulfport
When I lived in St. Pete this place was called Manatees. It is a bar at the end of main street in downtown Gulfport. It's a two-story bar/restaurant and the view is amazing! I would come here once to twice a week sometimes! I recommend sitting upstairs, getting a drink, and looking of into the beautiful bay at sunset.
5. Sea Salt
I lied before... Sea Salt is the most expensive place on this list... BUT NOT AT HAPPY HOUR (3-6pm)!! This is an oyster bar. They also have the largest wine cellar in Florida (it has an elevator!). The real exciting part is that they have 45 different kinds of salt you can try! They give you your own personal oil plate and you put the salt in there and try it with bread.
Do you want some delicious Mexican??? This restaurant on St. Pete beach is hidden in a corner and shares a building with an Italian restaurant. There food is super flavorful and their lunch menu is a really good price!
