Now this is what I love about TripAdvisor - when I travel, it helps me find unique and delightful places to eat that I might never have otherwise found. trip's is one of those wonderful finds.
Mu husband and I have several diners that we frequent up in NJ, so we were looking for a casual breakfast on our visit to St. Petersburg. Based on the reviews here, we headed to Trip's and had one of the best breakfasts either of us have ever enjoyed.
Although the restaurant was full, we waited only a few minutes before being seated, and the manager who seated us accommodated our request for a table instead of a booth. Our server came by quickly with our coffees and said she needed to type in a big order and would be right back - while she did this (in our view) the manager saw our menus still on the table and checked to make sure we were being taken care of, and we assured her we were fine.
The strata I ordered was huge and magnificent - the bottom layer was all egg, while the top layer had a delightful mixture of egg and bread seamlessly blended with sausage and tomato and spiced with basil and pesto. The obviously homemade hollandaise sauce was just delicately flavored with lemon - it was delicious! My husband had homemade corned beef hash with eggs that he thought was very good as well. I think we paid about the same for this homemade meal as we did for our Waffle House breakfast on the road....what an amazing value!! And in this case, the leftovers fed us for another day!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Trip's and look forward to returning the next time we are visiting St. Pete.
