Stone Soup Cafe - 16th Street - St Petersburg Florida

https://activerain.com/droplet/4SSV

Stone Soup Cafe on 16th Street, just north of 38th Avenue N in St Petersburg Florida was my destination for lunch today. I was meeting with a dear friend, Natalie. We go back many years, from the days when I was teaching here in the Pinellas County School System.

Natalie is a high school art instructor and this is her LAST day off before the new school year begins for the school board employees. It was great getting together and the Stone Soup Cafe is a place we both love!

We started with the fish spread with crackers and cucumbers.........the fish spread comes from Indian Rocks Beach according to Natalie. It is always fresh and a wonderful beginning to any meal!

Then I had the Stone Soup Salad which has mixed greens, sprouts, apples, dried cherries, feta and cashews. That is a fresh baked muffin on the side and I had olive oil and vinegar to go with it. Talk about a little bit of heaven!

The place is usually packed for lunch since everyone around knows that this little cafe has fantastic, healthy food that is always fresh! I highly recommend the Stone Soup Cafe if you want to have a wonderful meal!

Barbara Jo and did you have Stone Soup? There is a famous European Story how a poor traveler had made Stone Soup from town to town.....I wonder is that how they got their name?

Endre - Actually, that story comes from the 100 Year's War and it was soldiers that made the soup with water and stones because the towns people said they had nothing; they came out to see what was cooking and slowly each villager brought spices and ingrediants to improve the soup - thus stone soup.

Lisa - thanks for commenting - the food here is really wonderful

Barbara- well, I do try to find the healthy places; not necessarily the most popular with the tourists.

Barbara-Jo: Love the post and what a great name for a restaurant. I once directed a performance of Stone Soup-A rock Opera for a Catholic Schools Week presentation. One of our little actors - who is now 27 and a working actor,  has promised to include Mrs. C and the Stone Soup credit when he makes it to Broadway. LOL

Barbara Jo,

Isn't it great to have great friends you can count on. History with friends is better than desserts!

May you always have a reason to celebrate with friends.
