If you happen to be cruising through the Tampa Bay area then you must visit THE BAYBORO CAFÉ!
Cruising sailors are always on the hunt for that special laid back “hot spot” that offers camaraderie, EATertainment and a safe environment.   You don’t have to look  very far if you are on the west shore of Tampa Bay and near St Petersburg.    This is the place “Where the belly rules the mind.”

Your hosts will be April and Jeremy along with several others on a varied schedule.  I personally watched Jeremy build the interior of this café over a period of just a few months.  Jeremy will always welcome you with a smile and serve up a healthy dose of local knowledge as he prepares your order.  April is warm and inviting and very genuine giving you a real “hometown” warm experience.  Jeremy and April have expanded their menu offering simple casual to some rather creative daily specials.  Jeremy and April met in 7th grade at Wyndham Junior High in their homeroom class. According to April she liked him from afar, being that the two were in very different social circles. In 2009, they reconnected through Facebook. April invited Jeremy, who was living in St. Pete at the time, to visit her and her family in St. Augustine. Jeremy took the trip north where the two went to a Depeche Mode concert. Almost three years later, they are living happily in St. Pete, complimenting each other’s strengths to create a successful business.

The ideas for this business came when April, Jeremy and their dear friend Billy Moore were brainstorming at their home. Although Billy is not a partner in the project, he was the catalyst for this amazing café. Billy Moore was a resident at the Harborage Marina and is described as a great friend and handy man, from cleaning, cooking and plumbing, Billy could do it all. As April describes, all three could cook and work in great syncopation, which gave them the confidence to take on the huge endeavor of building a successful business. Sadly Billy Moore passed on April 16, 2011. Billy’s memory lives on with Jeremy, April, and Bayboro Café and Catering where every individual is welcomed into a caring, tightly-knit community.
 The Bayboro Café has a “GREEN” philosophy and uses local vendors whenever there is an option.  On occasion you will be treated to the culinary talents of guest chefs.  The menu is moderately priced and is a great value for freshly prepared great food.  Katie Toth recently commented, " I eat here so much they are going to name a sandwich after me. April and Jeremy are awesome and everyone should come support them."

The Bayboro Café offers live music on Wednesday, open mic on Thursday, and local musicians Friday and Saturday from 7to10pm. Bring your favorite instrument and join in the fun.  Tuesday morning you can get your Yogo on at the Bayboro Café.  Every Tuesday morning come and take part in Yoga between 7:30- and 8:45am. Using the Akhanda Style Hatha Yoga With KT there to help you through the class and make sure you walk away from the class in a better place than you began it. Suitable for beginners and all levels are welcome. Last check this class was merely $5.

The Bayboro Café is located just outside the security gate of the Harborage Marina in St Petersburg.  The Harborage marina offers transient slips if you are planning a short visit.  If you find yourself on the hook or at one of the other Marinas then you will find the Bayboro Café south of downtown St. Petersburg, FL at 1110 3rd street south in front of the Harborage Marina 
Now you can NEVER complain that there are no cruiser friendly fun spots in St Petersburg, FL.

Be sure to tell Jeremy and April you saw this on Salty State of Mind and tell them Captain Montgomery and Admiral Nelson said hello!
