Chef Trina Gregory has been cooking up southern comfort food in the Milk District for years; way before she was on Guy Fieri’s radar. From the delicious breakfast offerings such as biscuits and gravy to the more indulgent 7th Trimester (my favorite), Se7en Bites is perfect when you’re in the mood for comfort food. 

Se7en Bites has plenty of outdoor seating on their back deck for those days when you want to enjoy our amazing Florida weather.

Don't let the name change scare you (Previously FK Your Diet), this spot is still serving up the same great food. The owner, who was a foster kid himself, learned to cook from his various chefs (aka foster moms), and now donates 5% of the restaurant’s proceeds to children in the foster system. Try out their corned beef hash, country-fried steak, quiche, or breakfast burrito. With large portion sizes, you definitely won’t leave hungry.
