Columbia Restaurant

Columbia Restaurant

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

When I get to Tampa, which isn’t often enough, the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City is a favorite place for lunch or dinner. I find both the architecture and tile decoration outside and in fascinating.

My family has a particular attachment to the place as well. Apparently my grandfather liked to take my dad and the rest of the family out for dinner regularly on Friday evenings. This was the place he often frequented. Of course, on my recent trip to visit my mother ( brother also & family) we made a point of having a meal there. It’s always memorable.
