Red Elephant Café adds breakfast for anniversary

Forget a basic birthday cake. The Red Elephant Café is celebrating its first anniversary in South Tampa by adding breakfast.

The restaurant at 111 S Dale Mabry Highway — at Kennedy Boulevard — started serving breakfast on Monday with egg-centric pizzas, wraps and Home Fry Bowls (egg and cheese dishes served over home fries). Breakfast runs from 7 to 11 a.m. weekdays and 8 to 11 a.m. weekends. The restaurant switches to its lunch menu at 11 a.m.

General manager Kris Maronpot said they added breakfast because so many customers had asked for it and employees were already in the restaurant making morning catering orders. Among the menu highlights are sticky buns, French toast, smoothies and traditional breakfast items such as eggs Benedict and biscuits and gravy — with everything made from scratch.

Depending on the success, the Tampa-based chain founded by Outback Steakhouse alums will consider expanding the breakfast menu to its other seven Red Elephant Pizza and Grill locations. Throughout the month of May, the restaurant will donate 10 percent of the breakfast sales to Voices for Children for the Guardian ad Litem program.

  3. The new 'Baywatch' movie is basically about hot people in swimsuits

    Movies

    Baywatch is a running gag in slow motion, a thong-in-cheek TV retread swapping wholesome jiggles for dirty giggles. There are places for such humor but beaches don't have gutters.
