Review of the Greek City Cafe

0 comments

They currently have two locations: one at Countryside in Clearwater and one on US 19 in Spring Hill. They are opening a third location at Mariner Square in early April.

The Greek City Cafe is probably as authentic as you will find outside of Tarpon Springs. The gyro meat is sliced as needed from upright spinning spits. Their gyro wrap consists of warmed flatbread, onions, tomato, and tzatziki sauce. You can either have a side of chips or for a few dollars more you can have it as a platter with a small greek salad.

Italian Food Lovers Rejoice- Papa Joe’s is Back!

by Julie Maglio

Papa Joe's has become a Brooksville Institution. In the eyes of many who drive by Brooksville on Interstate 75, Brooksville is Papa Joe's. The success of the restaurant has much to do with Joe and Donna Giarratana's 34 years of hard work and generosity. It is also because of this that they were able to rebuild after an electrical fire destroyed their original restaurant back in January of 2014.

BROOKSVILLE - The Florida Cracker Kitchen is a great place to satisfy your cravings for southern cuisine. It is quickly becoming a fixture in Brooksville.

The restaurant is owned and run by Blair and Ethan Hensley. Blair formally had Coney Island Drive-Inn which is a few doors down. Being a Restaurateur must run in their blood as their mother Larie Hensley owns Mallie Kyla's Cafe just up the Hill next to Saxon Manor.

Local Roots Cafe & Coffee House

Hernando Sun Staff

Local Roots Cafe & Coffee House bills itself as a local farm to table coffee house. They offer a selection of sandwiches, salads, and soups for lunch. For breakfast they have coffee, sandwiches, and baked goods. They offer regular coffee, cappuccino, and mocha. Hernando Sun tried their cappuccino and it compares favorably with Starbucks.

On Tuesday’s they sell hot pasties. On the other days you can purchase frozen pasties to take home and cook. To many who were fond of the pasty store from the 1990’s on 98 just North of West Jefferson Street, this is a welcome return.

Located just south of Spring Hill Drive on Linden, Gino's Place offers lunch and breakfast at a great price for the size of your meal. It is fresh and fast. You order at the counter and Gino himself prepares it. He is friendly and personable and has 40 years of experience in the restaurant business. He opened Gino's place about 5 years ago and says it was on his bucket list to run his own restaurant. Business was slow going at first, but now he has built up a good clientele.

The Rising Sun Bistro opened its doors in June 2014 by Criss Holzaepfel and Catherine Reeves. Since then they have built a large following and a successful business. Rising Sun always uses fresh ingredients and locally sourced when available. When we stopped by, they had strawberries from JG Ranch on Wiscon Road. They also get beautiful lettuce for their salads from Auro Community Gardens. They carry local wines from Strong Tower Winery and others.
