1. Oxford ExchangeLocated across the street from the University of Tampa, this truly magnificent food hall will guarantee you to have a beautiful experience. Peruse the shops and bookstore after brunch or enjoy the ambiance of the atrium while sipping a mimosa, cappuccino or matcha lemonade. 

2. DatzThis trendy gastropub has a funky, industrial, judgement-free vibe. They are known for their large portions, so bring an appetite. Be sure to wander next door at their sister-restaurant, Dough, for some sweet treats and coffee.

3. Metro DinerMarked as “the place where locals eat,” Metro Diner serves delicious comfort food, guaranteed to warm hungry bellies and win happy hearts. The chicken and waffles are must! With most meals under $15, it’s a great place to bring the whole family.

4. Armature WorksA foodie’s dream: The 22,000 sq-ft industrial market features an open floor plan with communal seating, marking it as one of the newest innovative concepts in Tampa. It features about a dozen different restaurants, including Graze 1910, which serves brunch all day.

5. Noble CrustThis Italian-inspired southern brunch means you can have pizza and a bloody mary. On Saturdays, they serve up bottomless mimosas along with consistently great service, along with antique décor and furnishings. There are a few locations in the Tampa Bay area.

You can’t go wrong eating at any of these restaurants! The best thing about all these brunch places is they are all within 5 - 15 miles of Camden communities in Tampa. Are you traveling elsewhere anytime soon? Check out these fabulous brunch recommendations in Orlando and Austin.
