Family-owned and operated for over 100 years, The Columbia Cafe is a sister to The Columbia Restaurant in Tampa's Ybor City, Florida’s Oldest Restaurant, founded in 1905. Join us for lunch or dinner, and be sure to try our world-famous "1905" Salad, with our delicious, freshly-made dressing. Enjoy an authentic Cuban Sandwich with Spanish bean soup, pressed meatloaf sandwich, chicken and yellow rice and other entrée choices, along with tapas and desserts. Relax outdoors on our waterfront terrace with an ice cold pitcher of Sangria or Mojitos, and on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoon, enjoy live music with your meal. Children's menu and takeout available.
Located on the Riverwalk in Tampa, in the Tampa Bay History Center, the Columbia Cafe offers a full bar, and serves lunch and dinner daily with an indoor dining area, bar seating and an outdoor terrace with waterfront tables overlooking the Riverwalk. The bar is a replica of the original Columbia Restaurant bar in Ybor City.
