This is run by Metropolitan Ministries,so your money is supporting a good cause. As important, the food is excellent, with a good variety of soups,salads, sandwiches and desserts - all made in house. Try the chili when they have it.

We have used Inside The Box Café & Catering for several of our non-profit events. The sandwiches are inventive and delicious. The salads are colorful and nutritious. We enjoyed every bite and will use them again.

Came here for lunch and had a Reuben and the soup of the day. It was the chowder. Very good and good portions. Service is quick and plenty of seats to sit during lunch time.

Enjoyed their homemade parmesan chips at Gasparilla Music Festival. They were a perfect between-meal snack and so tasty!
