Where to eat in St Petersburg, Florida: Café Alma

When friends told us they'll be visiting St Petersburg, Florida, we were thrilled! We love downtown St Pete, and the beaches on the gulf side, and I've written many articles on both topics (see links on the sidebar).

When I wrote Where to Eat in Tampa Bay last year, I learned that the St Pete Ceviche (in the Ponce De Leon Boutique Hotel) is now open for lunch, and like its other locations in Tampa, Clearwater and Orlando, is offering $4 tapas on Tuesday all day. We couldn't take advantage of the excellent offer on this particular day, so we decided to check out Café Alma, a couple blocks from Ceviche.

We've heard great reviews about Café Alma, but never got the opportunity to stop by. Turned out Café Alma serves tapas also, and like Ceviche, the restaurant has been offering half price tapas for the last few years!  I love tapas; they are so tasty, and each bite bursts with flavors reminiscent of the Mediterranean. Tapas are small appetizer portions, so you can sample many dishes, and if you don't like one, it's not such a waste. The size of the tapas at Café Alma is not that small, as you can see in the pictures below. Café Alma's menu features a wide selection, from seafood to meat and vegetarian, as well as the usual fare of burgers, sandwiches and pasta. Everything was delicious, and we were delighted to find musicians arriving around 6:30 pm to provide live jazz entertainment.
