East Lake Café has been a haven for locals, since 2003, who love to gather together with friends and family for a cup of coffee, breakfast or lunch for seventeen years, and for them it comes with the feeling of community that’s part and parcel to eating at one of your favorite places and having one of your favorite meals. Whether you like to sit outside under the shade of an umbrella with your favorite furry friend or enjoy the air conditioning in their newly renovated dining room, you will feel at home.
It is an old-fashioned restaurant that makes things from scratch and serves them with a smile. The East Lake Café is filled with regulars who know the entire staff by name, and where the staff asks questions like, “Hey, Harry, is it going to be the French toast or the 2-2-2 today?”
Convenient to East Lake, Palm Harbor, Oldsmar and even Safety Harbor and Trinity, The East Lake Café is located at 3430 East Lake Road right next to Firehouse Subs, just across from the Boot Ranch Plaza. To be honest, it is one of those hidden gems that the locals know about, and the rest of us are mad that we’ve missed for so long. People say, “How did I not know this was here?!” Well, the secret’s out of the bag now, because more and more families are coming to the East Lake Café to enjoy their family- friendly atmosphere and the food, because really, it’s all about the homemade, made-to-order food that comes out of the kitchen.
Owner, Peter Pergola, a New York native who has years of impressive experience in the food industry, really takes pride in making his customers happy and treating them to menu items that they will really like. Some of Pergola’s experience, just to give you an idea, has been earned during directorships at high-end organizations such as The United Nations, The Met Museum, the Metropolitan Opera House, and the Museum of Natural History. Locally, he owned and operated Rocky Point Food Services in Tampa for a decade, and worked in management positions at well-knowns such as Maxwell’s Plum, Tavern on the Green, Top of the Park and the Sign of the Dove Group-Yellow Fingers, just to name a few. Wait, so what’s he doing here? Honestly, he’s doing what he loves. And until recently, he was doing it in Tampa as well, at the Jackson Street Bistro, but now, he’s completely focused on the East Lake Café, and you can find him there almost every day greeting his customers and making the rounds like an old friend.
