I visited this place on the morning of Christmas eve. The eggs benedict with mushroom was excellent. The hollandaise sauce was fresh and creamy, large portions for the ham slice and hash browns. The hash browns just a tab bit dry and over cooked. The coffee tasted great and high quality. One of the nice diners that I have visited... More

We were downtown exploring new places to eat. Put our name on the list at the corner chain restaurant (Firstwatch - good food) but we were hungry and didn't want to wait. I'd read good things about Samaria and was ready to try. Wow, so glad we did! The owner greets everyone and the staff is so polite and helpful.... More

I had no idea what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. they were very good about changing a menu item with meat into one without the meat. the salads were huge and tasted very good; lots of ingredients (not just greens); the service was fantastic. I'd no sooner taken a few sips from my diet pepsi when they came to... More

Found this place on trip advisor and gave it a try because of the good comments, we were not disappointed. Both had an omelette which were huge and I struggled to eat even half of it, very good food, clean place and super, super friendly, run by a lovely family. Would highly recommend !

Happened to stroll in here one morning after finding my usual, nearby breakfast place wasn't open. I was warmly greeted by the hostess who sat us in a booth; pretty comfortable and tons of tables. The service was excellent, and the food was absolutely phenomenal (and a killer value). Anyone who loves omelets will surely adore this place!

While visiting a trade show in Tampa we were eager to find a place for a short lunch before we went to do our booth duty. Our hotel recommended a different restaurant which we had a quick look in before stumbling next door to Samaria Cafe. What luck! Great service, great food, lots of room, no rushing. We loved it...

While evacuated from Hurricane Matthew we stumbled upon this gem. The family owned business has excellent food and are so friendly! We went back twice while in town. The owner went out of her way to make us feel at home- even giving us specially made wedding cookies! A great brunch place near parks and museum downtown. Will definitely come... More
