We stumbled upon Cafe Dufrain by accident and we were very happy we did. Service was excellent. Food was great and wine was an added bonus. Great views of downtown Tampa :)

We decided to give this place another try since some our friends said the new menu (and Chefs) has greatly improved. WOW, it exceeded our expectations. The seasonal Hummus was beets, and was amazing I had to eat fast so my husband (the non hummus eater) wouldn't eat it all. Even though I was hesitant, we ordered the watermelon, arugula, goat cheese with chili lime Lava Salt salad and it was Amazing. Our meal, we had the Short Rib "Mac & Cheese" spicy BBQ short ribs, Smoked Cheddar morney sauce,pan seared gnocchi with crispy kale. all I can say is WOW. Lawrence thanks for making such fabulous gnocchi. The deserts are just as equally fabulous. They make their own ice cream with very interesting flavors, like peanut butter sangria and a few more. If you sit outside the view of downtown is spectacular. Be ware Side Berns and Mise en Place you have some new serious competition.

Want cool spot with views of downtown Tampa and waterside strolling. Cross the bridge to Harbour island and escape the city in a cool cafe with good menu for Lunch.
