Here are just 2 of some of our favorite ultra-casual lunch spots and why
*Chattaways on 4th Street S. - we give credit where credit is due, their longevity is amazing, sitting outside amongst Jill and Warren's hundred's of trees, bushes, flowers and plants transports us to a different place, and if it is raining cats and dogs, make yourself comfortable inside in the quaint, smallish english type tea room. While perched amongst the Blue China, dozens of tea sets and pictures of the British Royal family, in this laid back, relaxed atmosphere, Lucky, an affable, friendly and efficient young man has been serving us our turkey sandwich (me) and a house salad and nice 5 OZ cheeseburger (Jose Luis), for quite some time . Prices are reasonable and the food is served without too much brouhaha or embellishments, fries for the burgers and sandwiches and saltines with the salad. Simplicity is sometimes best
*Munch's on 4th Street S. -although we had driven by this breakfast/lunch place a hundred times since we arrived in St. Pete, 8 months ago, we only ventured in, for the first time, this past month and have been back for both breakfast and lunch numerous times. Larry, the owner, whose family started Munch's 50 years ago has been there everytime to greet us and Ruth, who recently celebrated her 25 year anniversary as a waitress (kudos to you) has been taking care of us, and case in point, after just 2 visits already knows I like mayonaise with my fries (it is a Dutch thing). The Texas Hash or homefries with eggs for breakfast transport you to a bygone era of lunch counters and diners, and lunch provides all the basic elements from sandwiches to burgers and a couple of surprise specials like fried catfish or roasted chicken. Prices are reasonable, service is efficient and swift, and they have a book exchange area, where you can pick up the latest releases, and some older, well worn paperbacks for $1, what else would we want.
