Smiley’s Snack Shack 3700 Gulf Blvd St. Pete Beach, FL 33706

Hiding in plain sight, a diamond in the rough. First time here last Friday morning, a small quiet place full of Southern hospitality. Had an omelet with ham and onions plus rye toast, which appeared in five minutes or so. Delicious and only five and a half.

Large TV over the small dining floor, which has three tables in center and more along the walls plus a few seats in front of small counter. Only one client when I arrived, then more came in as the morning passed.

Parking lot shrouded by bushes, sign at 37th facing south. Entrance on 37th so quite easy to miss. Half-hour parking limit so don’t even think of leaving it there. Just a block down from the ever-popular Undertow Beach Bar.
