Since I moved to Tampa (almost 5 months ago!), I’ve been slowly checking off all the places people told me ‘I had to try’ when I moved here. One of those places was Fresh in downtown Tampa. Personally, the location isn’t the best (downtown is really hard to navigate unless you live or work here), but I just so happened to be in the neighborhood today and was happy to finally have the chance to check it out.
Fresh is a custom salad and panini bar with a large menu, tons of options, and a beautiful storefront.
They even have a cereal bar! I sort of wish I did work downtown now – I’d probably be here everyday. Custom salads? Paninis? Cereal bar? Why can’t they build one of these near me? 😉
I probably looked a little lost trying to figure out what to order – there were a ton of options and I honestly felt a little overwhelmed. Luckily, the owner saw the confused look on my face and instantly helped me figure everything out. He told me I had free reign of the sandwich bar and to pick anything I wanted to build the world’s best panini.
He wrapped everything up for us and Derek and I headed to the dog park for a picnic.
I had a custom panini on pumpernickel with turkey, cinnamon apples, blue cheese, grilled onions, and spinach. Yum!
The water was a little high at the dog park today.
