Skyway Diner 4000 34th Street South in St Petersburg FL

Excellent service here as I enjoyed breakfast this morning. Was welcomed as I walked in and told to sit anywhere, She follows me to my table with menu and asks what to drink. Just water, thank you. Another gracious lady asks if I needed a minute? I’ll have a ham omelet – home fries or grits?, wheat, white or rye?. Home fries and rye toast is my usual.

My order appeared in less than five minutes, can’t beat that. Large interior in what seems to be a former Denny’s or another chain. Hanging flower baskets a neat touch. Few diners on this mid-week morning as I quietly enjoyed my breakfast.

Glad I finally stopped here after passing by many times, will be back.

Thorntons Gas & Service Stations 1351 34th St N Saint Petersburg, FL 33713

Gassed up here this morning for the first time. New offering along the 34th Street corridor in what was the Tampa Bay Times parking lot.

Lowest gas price in town. Simple yet elegant storefront, and plenty of food options inside. Cleanest rest room in town probably. Had never seen this oil company before, but it all looks A-OK. The St Petersburg construction boom continues

Earl of Sandwich at 5004 4th Street North in St Petersburg FL

First time visit for lunch today about noon. Friendly welcoming cashier waited patiently as I perused wall menu. Chose Italian, one of their least expensive offerings, he asked if I wanted the combo with chips and drink and I agreed. He gave me their buzzer and I waited a few minutes even as there was nobody ahead of me.

After over 5 minutes went to get my drink as I waited for the buzzer, then returned to my table. Walked back to pick-up station as the sandwich maker was wrapping my order, all interesting.

Small tasty offering dripping vinegar I guess, had a bit of tomato and lettuce in there. Long chips rack in front of cash register, kettle-cooked potato chips bag about one and a third ounce with medium drink rounded out the combo.

Wood-paneled floor and wood tables give an upscale feel, dark metal chairs complement. Wood paneling along part of a wall, which continues with a large drawing of a vintage Earl, whimsical.

Large dining area with plenty of seating in front and to side of cash register. The entire concept looks like a deluxe super-sized Subway with upscale ambiance and pricing and downsized sandwiches. Music was playing, pleasant place to linger while reading or on your tablet.

That combo came to just over nine bucks including tax.
