Great menu selections for breakfast and lunch.... Love the Eggs Benedict and other breakfast items. Sometimes a bit crowded on late weekend mornings, but...that comes with good food!

This place was highly rated and that's why I came but this is a lesser version of IHOP. Even the menu looks like IHOPs items. The pancakes and eggs where very average. The server was very friendly but the food here is not very tasty.

Tried for a second time. Won't try again. Very average at best. Don't understand all the rave reviews. Hostess not welcoming and not a good impression when you walk in the door. Breakfast special was a veggie omelette. Not much to the omelette but there was a plate covered with hashbrowns if you want your fill of hashbrowns for breakfast.... More

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

Great place to enjoy breakfast and relax on any morning. Big portions and tasty food at a great price! I eat here once a week. Todd the owner has a winner!

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
