The Osceola Tavern has only been around since 1999, but the building it's in has been a Dade City fixture since the 1890s, and was a saloon at least as far back as 1910. Classic rock jukeboxes, live music on weekends and a whole mess of folks who don't feel like heading to Hillsborough for a good time -- that, as they say, is real.
Under twinkling lights hung year-round and the staring eyes of exotic stuffed game, Kafe Kokopelli offers one-of-a-kind ambiance for lunch and dinner in downtown Dade City. The menu spans quesadillas, ribs, pork chops and baked Italian dishes, plus delicious appetizers like Memphis nachos, white chicken chili, fried green tomatoes and a house salad dressing to drool for. The Stag Bar -- yes, it has antlers -- has top-shelf liquor, flat-screen TVs and fancy daily specials.
