Well yesterday I was actually able to go out and experience the Urban Culinary Cafe for myself, and believe me when I say it is southern cuisine at its best, if not better! Owners Rose and John Saxton make you feel at home, right when you walk in the door, as its almost like you are family.
After sitting down and talking with Rose about all the great items on the menu and how they go about serving their customers, it was time to get down to business and get some grub.
I had skipped breakfast that morning, as I wanted to be good and hungry when I came in, so onward to the menu I went. There was a total of five of us there so it was important to get a good feel for the cuisine, so I think we all actually ended up ordering different items on the menu.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I will let my pictures of our food do the talking for us. Here is the breakdown for what the five of us ordered.
- Susan - Urban Catfish Sandwich with Fries and Collard Greens
- Jane - Urban Fried Catfish with Whole Kernel Corn and Collard Greens
- Holly - Urban Fried Catfish with Whole Kernel Corn and Green Beans
- Sherri - Salmon Fillet with Mac & Cheese and Whole Kernel Corn
- Jerm - Fried Shrimp with Mac & Cheese and Whole Kernel Corn
Unfortunately we didn't have time to check out dessert as we had to get back to the office, so I am depending on you guys to go try it out and report back to me. In the mean time, check out the menu. Whether its dine in, take out, catering, or live jazz music while you eat, you can't really go wrong at the Urban Culinary Cafe!
That's all for now folks, but be sure to check out more food & dining related things to do in Tampa Bay!
