The Laughing Cat is convenient to the Trolley line. You can eat near a window and watch the colorful antics of Ybor City as you dine. It is around the corner, right off of the "main drag" of Ybor City where it seems to be pretty wild and crazy, so you do not have to be subject to that kind of atmosphere if you choose not to round the corner. It seems reservations are a must on weekends. Don't let the decor fool you, the food is the draw here. There is a Trolley station right across the street, so it is convenient to eat and then go to another location, or to eat at after going to another location. The Trolley runs every 15 minutes. It's about $2 for a single ride or $4 for all day, and at least on Thursdays the trolleys run until around 11 PM. The trolley drivers are helpful at getting you on and off at the right place. When it's not busy or crowded, the trolley driver may let some people off close to their hotel or another specific location rather than a marked trolley stop farther away. Parking is probably cheaper here then in Tampa and the trolley can get you to major points in Tampa. This works to avoid hassles of downtown Tampa parking and traffic, with the perk of great eats.
