This long running family restaurant is a favorite in downtown Tampa. Samaria is a great breakfast choice prior to walking the riverfront or exploring any of Tampa's cultural attractions.
Samaria offers your standard homestyle American diner vibe complete with a cozy ambiance and traditional breakfast fare. The menu is affordable with lots of familiar favorites on the lineup. Enjoy standard favorites like pancakes (chocolate chip, pecan, and blueberry available), French Toast (made with challah bread), benedicts, or omelets (over 10 options available).
The Broccoli Cauliflower omelet (includes tomatoes, onions, and cheese) is quite delicious. Each omelet comes with home fries and toast or biscuit, so the serving is more than adequate. Another great choice is the Spinach, mushroom, and cheese quiche, which is served with a homemade muffin of the day and a fresh fruit cup.
Bonus - Samaria serves regular coffee as well as a full espresso menu, so no need to hit a Starbucks.
Service is good, attentive and efficient.
The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, and thus, perfect for a laid-back breakfast experience prior to your morning jog or walk along the riverfront.
Overall, Samaria is one of the better local breakfast choices in the downtown/Riverwalk region. The low key ambiance and abundance of breakfast choices make it
a great place to fuel up prior to any type of fitness activity.
