The Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City

(Click on photos for larger images.)

We went to the original Columbia Restaurant for lunch. It was founded in 1905 in the historic district of Ybor City in Tampa, Florida. It is the oldest restaurant in Florida.

The menu features Spanish and Cuban cuisine. Their signature dish is paella. It was awesome!

There are several dining rooms with unique decor.

The exterior of the building is surrounded by an architectural arcade with twisted pillars.

The exterior walls are covered with painted tiles.

I highly recommend a visit if you are in Tampa.
