Cafe Alfresco is a favorite for my husband and me. We enjoy going there for a relaxing lunch. The food is very good, with many choices from a wide ranging menu. We love to watch the people walking or riding bikes along the Pinellas Trail. Soups are excellent, especially the Sicilian White Bean. My favorite sandwiches are the grouper sandwich or the Buttermilk Ranch chicken. My husband had the Cajun meatloaf on a recent visit and enjoyed the gravy that contained Cajun sausage.. We both like the Chicken Curry, but be warned, the curry can be a little too spicy sometimes. Save room for desert! We're awarding a gold star to our attentive and friendly server Ryen.

We've been here with our kids about 4 times and each experience has been terrific. Great service, great food. You might need to wait for a table on busy nights but it is well worth it.

We went to Dunedin for a day last month and I always check tripadvisor for restaurant ratings when I visit some place new. Well, we were pleasantly surprised and loved our meal. We were seated immediately and our orders taken promptly, My husband loved his grouper sandwich and I had chicken on a croissant served with really fresh fruit. The food was great and the service was great. I totally agree with the high ratings that this place receives.

We live in the area and whenever we have company in town this time of the first places we take them for dinner or lunch.

The food is always delicious and the portions are BIG. I always leave with left overs. If you go for lunch, ask for Jill and tell her Peggy sent you!

Enjoy!

Cafe Alfresco is always busy but you can usually find a seat. We enjoy dining outside. The food is always good. Go on Wednesday nights and enjoy the pastas at a very reasonable price.
