This is a regular stop. We love the breakfast and this time tried to do brunch. Always good service, food and price. It is crowded if you go after 9 am...and expected to be based upon service and home cooking. Always worth the wait!

My wife and I had breakfast there a few days ago. Friends recommended this place and I looked at the trip advisor rating which is very high. Our meals where served in a reasonable amount of time and all the food was good. I just don't understand why this place is rated 4 out of over 200 places to eat... More

This was our first stop at the Recipe Box, although we had always heard positive things about it. It was a good breakfast experience all the way around! The restaurant is buried back in a strip mall, and not really visible from Bloomingdale, the main thoroughfare where it is located. Signage could certainly be improved. But, once found, it is...

This gem of a breakfast and lunch place is sort of off the beaten path at 147 E. Bloomingdale, Brandon, Florida in a strip mall. The place thrives on word-of-mouth referrals and you may need to call for a reservation if you have a large group or don't want to wait for awhile to be seated. 813-655-2686. They are open... More

My wife and I discovered this place not long ago when we were tired of waiting out front of The Egg and I which is always packed. Granted, they have good food....it's just they don't move people along too quick. So, their loss is Recipe Box's gain. The wait is never too long and they have call ahead seating service... More

Large portions are provided, big screen tv's seem out of place. Food quality was average, seemed to be in need of a deep clean, and decor in need of update.

A sweet little diner in a strip mall. Excellent service by friendly staff. An affordable diner with delicious sandwiches ( Reuben with yummy fries), and soups (Turkey Vegetable). Bonus: seeing customers decked out in green and one Oriole's fan!
