Caribbean Cafe has something for everyone!

I was looking for a place to meet a friend for lunch between Gulfport and Seminole.  Normally, I just drive by a place and stop in because it looks interesting or there is something on the sign that grabs my attention. I googled the 49th street area where I wanted to be and found a couple different places. I randomly picked the Caribbean Cafe . 

The inside was very cute and clean. There are several different seating options from tables, to booths to a counter along the window. 

  I stood at the counter not knowing what to order!  There were a few sandwiches that I wanted to try, delicious sounding salads, as well as soups. 
I decided (upon a customer's recommendation) on the jerk pork. [Mayo, mustard, cheese & pickle on fresh Cuban bread. ] My friend ordered the turkey and cheese [Dill pickle, mustard and mayo on fresh Cuban bread.]  All sandwiches are served pressed or cold and available as a 12" ($7.25), 9" ($6.25), or a combo which includes a 4 1/2" sandwich and a bowl of black beans, scoop of rice and a side of chopped onions ($6.25).

We sat down by the window and it didn't take long before they called our names and our sandwiches were ready.  

Drinks are available by the can ($1.35) or from the fountain ($1.35/$1.75).  Also available are herbal teas, fruit smoothies and frozen cappuccino.  Desserts include flan ($2.95), coconut flan ($2.95) and cookies (.75). 
Caribbean Cafe is open Monday through Friday from 10:30am- 6:00pm and on Saturday from 10:30am to 3:00pm and located at 4801 Central Avenue in St. Petersburg.
