Lovely Inside/Outside Bar at the Vinoy In March, we had the pleasure to stay at the Renaissance Vinoy St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club, and I took advantage of stopping into the Veranda Café a few times - always just for wine. The Veranda Café...is located in, and just off of the lobby of the Vinoy, and for the outside, there are two areas: the bar, logically on the veranda of the hotel, and then an al fresco dining area, on the front lawn, with tables, and lots of umbrellas. One side of the bar is inside the lobby, with both stools and then livingroom seating, and the other side (the larger of the two) is on the veranda, with stools and also comfortable sofas and chairs. Above the exterior, veranda bar, there were lovely ceiling fans, that were very effective on this March afternoon. I settled in at the bar, and looked over the B-T-G wine list. I found it to be rather nice, and while short, it did have some options - I chose the Hall Napa Cabernet Sauvignon ‘16, and was pleased that the stemware was quite nice. The next visit found me in front of the Newton “Skyside” Chardonnay. The service on both visits was excellent, and attentive, and the venue is both relaxing, and charming. I never did sit inside (the weather was too nice), but that part of Veranda Café was attractive, as well. For me, a great place to sip wine, and look out onto the harbor.More

This is exactly what you can expect from a cafe - a somewhat limited menu but the food and service were outstanding. The drinks were delicious and it was worth staying on property for.

Had a tasty egg white wrap that was healthy, fast and available and inexpensive. There is a small selection but it is convenient. Very nice workers

We only came in everyday for coffee, tea, OJ, and muffins when we stayed at the hotel. Nice fresh selections, friendly and bright staff who are very useful. Also very quick service.

Excellent food, service and views! We enjoyed drinks including wine and a Berry Lemonade which was very refreshing. For dinner we enjoyed the kettle chips, house salad, Grouper sandwich (blackened) and sweet potato fries. Everything was very tasty and good service.

We enjoyed a fresh and tasty lunch at the Veranda Cafe at the Vinoy. It was great to sit outside and soak up the sun while dining. The fresh fruits and veggies used in the salads were really yummy.

What a great surprise. .Ily coffee, expresso and Udis gluten free muffins, and bagels. They are in the ground floor of the Vinoy. It is a great stop and view to enjoy on the front porch of the hotel! Ask to be served in a...ceramic mug, even better!More

The food was outstanding and the service second to none. I could not find anything wrong or that I would improve.

This cafe located with the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel is excellent. I had a burger with bacon medium which was memorable. The fried were also good. My wife had a caesar salad with chicken and soup and was also impressed.

We hung out here while we waited for our room. They views of the marina and the gulf are great!! The seating is comfortable and service is very friendly. We hardly noticed the time (2 hrs) and already felt relaxed and on vacation!! Loved it.
