This restaurant is minutes away from downtown Tampa. Ella's Cafe opens at 5.00 pm and it becomes very busy, very soon after the opening. Nice patio although next to a busy street. You can have your furry friend with you in the patio. Excellent menu...More

Every thing was good to excellent, we both loved the "Henry the loaf" - acon wrapped Meatloaf covered with Beef Gravy & Crispy Onion Rings served with Garlic Mashed Potatos & Seasonal Veggie. Minimal convenient parking, but worth it.

The soup of the day was amazing. Balsamic black bean with rosemary, goat cheese crumbles and pomegranate. My friend and I shared the Don pizza and still had a piece leftover because it was so filling. Definitely will go again.

One of my favorite places to eat until recently. Our last visit was very disappointing. While the food was good overall, the (adult) drinks were terrible. Both the Bloody Mary sans-rib (typically, my go-to) and Mimosa were terrible. I sent the Bloody Mary back because...More

We arrived about 5:30 pm and found very few people there, mostly at the bar and were seated outside as we asked. It is near a busy street but was a nice evening to eat outside. There are heaters if needed. We had very good...More
