Kalina’s Coffee and European Food

Published on 04/14/22: Greek salads, gyros and much more at Kalina’s Coffee and European Food!

Before we head into our series on Gulfport, I’ll wrap up our posts about this unassuming shopping center a few miles north of downtown St Pete. Specifically, three of the 4+ star hidden gems within the plaza, based on Google Reviews.

The Unassuming Shopping Center with Kalina’s Coffee and European Food

I first posted about Happy’s Ice Cream, the small batch ice cream shop serving delicious ice cream as well as ‘boozy’ ice cream for adults. Then we posted about the very high tech video arcade (w/o much signage) inside Sunrise Lanes. Now onto our family’s new source of gyros and Greek salads inside the same plaza!

Kalina’s Coffee and European Food has an excellent 4.6/5 average out of 230 Google Reviews and has been locally owned for many years. Sounds like they’ve only moved once in the last 15 years or so, and that was within the same plaza.

Lots of items

Upon entering this deli and specialty grocer, Colt and I were both in a bit of shock. I mean, there’s a lot going on in a rather small space. We’re talking 1000’s of items, including wine and even a small selection of fresh produce.

Delicious Gyro’s

Once we regained our focus, ate a gyro and Greek salad, the reviews all made perfect sense! They were delicious. We’ve returned twice to reload and now my wife spotted different types of pierogies in our photos, an excuse for our next visit. And if you’ve been looking to step up your coffee game, Kalina’s has a very large selection of coffee grounds and beans from many countries!

Mostly To-Go Orders and Grocery Shopping

I should add, while there are a couple small tables inside, my hunch is that most order ‘to-go’. Very casual, with simply a counter for food pickup.

Alright, now I’m wanting another gyro, guess I know where I’m going for lunch!

Open everyday from 8am-8pm

In case you’re curious how our LSP algorithm works, Colt and I form our initial list from places who have earned 4+ stars on Google Reviews. We then visit those places and post a decent number of them. We also have a heart for supporting locally owned small businesses, which factors into the algorithm.

Google Reviews: 230 with a 4.6/5 Average

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
