Look around the walls of the new Trip's Diner and you'll see wonderful black-and-white historic photos of St. Petersburg, with maps and other Florida ephemera adorning the tabletops. Owner Gordon Stevenson took over the space vacated last year by Dave's, a beloved but somewhat dilapidated diner, and set to work. What hasn't been lost in the transition is the nostalgic, breakfast-all-day, honest American diner feel. Stevenson says he fine-tuned the menu to "eliminate the veto vote." Translation: It's a something-for-everyone lineup of salads, sandwiches, classic diner entrees and even pastas and fish. But where Trip's seems to hit its stride is with its sturdy, egg-centric breakfast fare.
