We flew into Tampa to dive with the Manatees in Crystal River. We landed at 8am and found Pinky's for breakfast. It is only 6 miles from the airport. There is parking across the street and the bar is first come first serve for seating. My hubby had the pork belly Benedict and I had scramble eggs, bacon and a... More

This was the best breakfast/brunch/lunch place we could have found in Tampa! Not too far away from the EMBASSY SUITES In Tampa Westshore, where we stayed after going to see the Yankees play a Spring Training game. My husband enjoyed the complimentary breakfast at the Embassy Suites for Hilton Honors members while I slept. So I needed a place that... More

Stopped in after a cruise for brunch. The wait was about 30 minutes, but that's because there was 6 of us. (Very few large party tables but we made it work). Bloody Mary was perfect. I had the turkey eggs Benedict with spinach & tomato. Yum!! Glad we found this gem!

Nestled between a shoe repair shop and a defunked gift shop you'll find this gem. The menu has unique breakfast offerings and an interesting lunch menu. Opt for the interior seating that is limited to about 20 instead of the outside seating on a busy 4 lane road. My 1/2 order of stuffed French Toast was scrumptious and my companions... More

Visited Pinky's for breakfast on a Sunday morning. They were packed! Outside seating is first come, first serve, so we snagged a small 2 person table outside. We had our pup and felt very welcome. Our table was situated between the door and outside waiting area, so there was constant traffic by our table. Great service and food! My husband... More

While again visiting Tampa, we decided to have brunch at Pinky's before heading to the airport. I recalled Pinky's being quite busy when there on the weekend and weren't sure we'd be able to get in and be served in time. Luckily, we were immediately seated. Service was great and everyone's food was scrumptious and filling. Pinky's is officially a... More

Always a great breakfast and worth the wait. If you are lucky enough to get the salmon Benedict go for it otherwise you can't go wrong with pancakes or other breakfast options.

I had lunch here during the week on a Wednesday, but it was very busy being the week before Christmas. The food was very good and the portions large. I had breakfast food and there were lots of choices. The service was excellent. I would definitely visit again; especially since my hairdresser is right next door.

We were excited to try this place for brunch since we had heard good reviews from friends, however, when we arrived to try the restaurant for brunch we were greeted with "We are closing early today!..closing at 2pm." (which btw is their normal closing time on Sun) It was only 1pm when we arrived. We were then approached by what... More

So my fiancé and I went to Tampa for my birthday weekend and woke up without a breakfast place in mind..... Went on Trip Advisor and had three or four choices near our hotel. Stopped at Pinky's even though there was a line and the parking lot (small as it is to begin with) was full. We were able to... More
