Pincho y Pincho - downtown St Petersburg, FL
After a Sunday morning run, Pincho y Pincho is a regular favorite of the family for Sunday brunch. Pincho y Pincho is part of Ceviche and is a small bar and coffee shop that serves breakfast and lunch. Your biggest challenge will being able to snag a table, especially on the weekend. Seating space is limited to seating around the bar and there are a few small tables on the floor. However, when the weather is nice, they offer a number of tables on the sidewalk.
Sunday there are $4 specials on sangria's, Bloody Mary's, and mimosas, so be sure to check that out before ordering your drinks. So, drinks in hand, we are ready to order and we all have our favorites. My son almost always orders the Gambas Al Ajillo. These are gulf shrimp cooked in garlic and olive oil and served with a slice of lemon to drizzle on top. They are delicious and good for dipping hot bread in, but make sure to ask for a basket at Pincho y Pincho because normally bread is served only upon request, unlike Ceviche. My favorite is the Filletito, which is sliced tenderloin with Cabrales bleu cheese and served with some greens. And for my husband, the Pincho croissant stuffed with scrambled eggs and cheese is a favorite. A really great spot to spend a lazy Sunday.
