Our Day in Ybor City

Play Video

When spending a day in the historic Ybor City, it’s only right to start at Florida’s oldest restaurant, Columbia. A pitcher of their famous sangria for the table is a must!

After filling up on 1905 salads and Cuban sandwiches, we had to get some caffeine in us from Foundation Coffee. With a little boost of energy, we strolled down 7th to the Snaphouse, an adorable selfie studio full of walls with different themes and props.

When the photo shoot was over, Hotel Haya was calling our name. Their restaurant Flora Fina has stunning cocktails that taste equally as amazing as they look. And it wouldn’t be a proper day in Ybor if we didn’t stop in at Chill Bros. We had to get a cone of Guava Pastelito ice cream and even some pints to go.
