This morning I wanted to introduce my parents to one of my Top 10 favorite places to eat in Tampa – Datz Deli. I love Datz for their funky atmosphere and eccentric menu and I knew my parents would love it too.They serve breakfast 7 days of the week, but have a special brunch menu on the weekends, which includes treats such as red velvet pancakes (with cream cheese icing in place of syrup!) and banana-bacon-peanut butter waffles. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in the Tampa area.
We’ve been spoiled with gorgeous weather this weekend – not too hot, not too cold, and perfect for dining outside. I didn’t even know Datz had an outdoor patio, but I do know now.
See the photos of food? They were tweeted by Datz customers. Datz referenced the tweet below each photo as a modern day form of testimonials. I though it was clever.
This was what I was after.
I almost went with the Red Velvet Tower, but that sounded a bit too rich for me ( I think the cream cheese icing would have been over the top). Instead I ordered the belgian waffle with strawberries and bacon.
Plus a side of scrambled eggs.
I crumbled the bacon on top of the waffle and enjoyed the lovely sweet and savory mix with each bite. I knew I liked this place.
After Datz my parents and I did a little shopping in preparation for my sister’s bridal shower next weekend. We hit up a local discount basket store, Joann Fabrics, and Party City. We’re sticking with the picnic party themed and I think it’s really starting to come together. I still have a few DIY projects up my sleeves, but it’s getting there.
What will I make with wooden sticks and 12×12 patterned paper? You’ll see.
We made it back home around 1:00 and I was ready to a light lunch.

My parents just left, but the weekend isn’t over yet!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone!
Where’s your favorite place for breakfast/brunch on the weekends?
