Alcohol: Beer and wine only
The space has been totally reinvented as a 21st century diner with lots of winky nostalgia. On the weekends Kings Street serves food until 4 a.m. with a whole poutine menu and the best corn dog around. And for dessert, it would be unwise to forgo the flaky, crispy cronut topped with molten deep chocolate ganache and a flurry of really good bacon chunks. With four styles of poutine, a few salads, extravagant milkshakes, 10 grilled cheeses and 16 hot dog styles, it’s like no 1950s-era diner menu ever. But it works for St. Pete hipster-foodies with a smart beer list (wines are a little perfunctory), glass-bottle old-timey sodas, Kahwa coffee and over-the-top milkshake combinations.
Hours: 11 a.m.- 10 p.m. Mon.-Thurs., until 4 a.m. Fri., 10 a.m.- 4 a.m. Sat., 10 a.m.- 10 p.m. Sun.
