The Jones Eastside Organic and Local Eatery

401 NE 23rd Avenue Gainesville, FL 32804 352-373-6777 Open every day 8:00 am to 10:00 pm

Local and independently owned, The Jones Eastside provides delicious, organic and original meals all day and night. I picked a classic tuna salad sandwich on rosemary bread. The bread added additional freshness and I couldn't stop eating and finished both halves! (Actually, that's not unusual for me.)

Jones Restaurant

Vegan breakfast is served all day and patrons can view specials etched in chalk on the blackboard wall. Their menu states the truth: local, sustainable food just tastes better.


30 N Main Street Gainesville, FL 32601 352-337-1188 Tuesday - Saturday: 5:00 pm - 2:00 am Sunday: 11:00 am - 11:00 pm

Visiting the TOP is always a treat in my book. The menu offers vegan-friendly fare and downright devilish temptations. Seven-layer cakes glow from the presentation case in the back of their eclectic restaurant. This spot is perfect for date night or meeting with friends and family after a special event.

The Top

The black bean burger is very filling and packed with protein. If you want a small indulgence, order an appetizer of sweet potato fries or sweet corn nuggets for the table. They may sound strange, but the corn nuggets are delicious with melt in your mouth sweet corn coated with a crunchy fried topping. This is not my suggestion for a healthy alternative for eating out. However, ordering some for the table so everyone can sample one or two is acceptable.

MAD about Food

1605 E.Plaza Drive Tallahassee, FL 32308 850-561-3663 Monday - Friday: 8:00 am - 4:00 pm Saturday: 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

The reason I started this site is because I believe the best tasting food is made from fresh, healthy ingredients, and this eatery perfectly fits my description. MAD about food creates meals with wholesome ingredients that will make a difference in your day. From fresh soups to handcrafted pastries, this place takes the cake in my book.

MAD About Food

The menu is simple which allows you to try it all! The mad melt breakfast sandwich is freshly prepared with cheese, egg and choice of meat on fresh ciabatta bread. Order it with a lean protein such as ham and a side of fruit and you have a complete breakfast before you start your day.
