A little slice of paradise. Beautiful and peaceful with a great hostess! You will feel right at home the minute you walk in the door. I was meeting with a friend who was staying here and Paula met us at the door with coffee and set us down for a delicious breakfast before we were allowed to get to work. Check this place out!

Call Street Cafe

111 W Call St
Starke, 32091
Reviews:
While driving back to St Pete from Charleston we were hungry and needed lunch. I made a wish for a restaurant that had fresh fruit and veggies with a good kids menu and a good alternative to the greasy Fast food that is offered in these parts. To my surprise Call Street Cafe popped up on yelp and I couldn't believe my eyes as I read the reviews and menu. It was the answer to my wish! When we arrived we were greeted by a wonderfully quirky 4piece band. Loved it! The food was healthy yummy and plenty! We will definitely stop again if we drive through Starke.
We went out of our way to stop here on the way to Tampa and are so glad we did! I had a Harvest Salad that was a veritable farmers market full of delicious! Spinach, strawberries, watermelon, cucumbers, craisins, almonds, feta cheese, all dressed with the Call Street Cafe's house-made balsamic vinaigrette! Heaven!!! Too full to try their muffins, cupcakes, or key lime pie. Will try them next time for sure.
When I told someone that we were stopping in Starke for lunch, they responded, "There's places to eat there??" And quite a gem Call Street Cafe is! When all you see are fast food joints, I was really happy to have Yelp lead us to a healthier, fresher option. Though we were tempted by their delicious-sounding burgers and panini, we both ordered salads. The Harvest Salad was loaded with spinach, strawberries, watermelon, sunflower seeds, and all sorts of other goodies. I got the Chef salad, which had a great portion of deli turkey, ham, and cheeses along with a boiled egg and very fresh tomatoes. Most of their dressings are house-made, and I really recommend the Honey-Rosemary dressing! I've never heard of rosemary in a dressing (or a salad, for that matter), but it really is incredible with white champagne whisked in with it. For two salads loaded with awesome toppings, the price was unbeatable. We didn't order desserts, but I have to say that based on looks alone, their muffins and cupcakes were huge and very hard to resist. They also have Key Lime Pie! Someone needs to try them out and let me know how they are!

Tony & Al’s Deli

200 E Call St
Starke, 32091
Reviews:
I went with some people from the office today with a clean slate and feelings of high hopes. This is a mediocre review of Tony & Al's for a couple of reasons. But first off, the staff and owner work incredibly hard, so a big kudos for that! However, I am once again left dissatisfied. Today I ordered the turkey bacon sub sandwich thinking I would get a hearty and fresh sandwich. The one slice of bacon was almost nonexistent (I had to look for it under the cheese when I realized I didn't taste bacon) and the sliced turkey was two, maybe three slices at best and reminded me of the packaged turkey you can get at Publix. All of this magic was covered up by a big slice of melted provolone cheese. It was under seven dollars but certainly something I could have easily recreated at home with very little effort. I also had to ask for some mayonnaise to dress the bread. Not terrible, but at the same time nothing to write home about! I will opt for the shrimp wrap next time. Of the three times I've had lunch here, this is the second disappointment I've experienced. Last time I visited with the office someone ordered a hamburger that was terribly underdone. Yuck. I will be back, but I will stick with the Italian basics of calzones, stromboli, pizza and of course the shrimp wrap. For dessert the cannoli is spectacular finish to the meal if you are so inclined! At the end of the day with seemingly limited sit-down lunch options in the area, this is a great choice provided you don't mind a heavy garlicky Italian meal in the middle of the day. For me, however I prefer something a little lighter to not bog me down!
Friendly service. Fantastic pizza. Tiny bit pricy, but they have great specials. Love this place, will never eat at that other pizza joint in Starke again.
Great food and wonderful service. We had lasagna and a Stromboli. Both were absolutely wonderful!! Highly recommend!

Powell’s Dairy Freeze

Reviews:
I eat at Powell's often. Good food and very nice staff. Convenient and reasonable service time. Also reasonably priced. I recommend. B
Sprite milk shake? Pineapple sprite? Cherry pineapple sprite? This place is full of surprises. Full service at your car. Friendly peeps. And FAST!!! The shakes are divine. The steak sandwich is good roadside food. I would describe it as chicken fried hamburger on a long bun with onions and such. You can get the bun grilled.. The soft serve cones are the bomb diggity and only $1.90 for a large. Twist it up. And step up with chocolate dippage. Or get your sundae all-the-way. I thought Kathy was coming on to me, but it turns out that just means with everything.. Picnic tables along 301. Or jam out in your Civic. Don't forget to bring your own hot sauce. And tequila for the pineapple Sprite.. That's what Kathy recommends anyway. The fried okra and fried mushrooms are highly recommended. I've also heard.good things.about their corn dog.
We stopped in on our way to Gainesville. Powell's has delightful soft serve ice cream, very light and airy. The corn dogs and fried okra are wonderfully fresh and delicious. With the old fashioned drive-up service and walk-up window, this place is a must! Americana for certain.

Laredo Mexican Restaurant

800 N Temple Ave
Starke, 32091
Reviews:
I come through Starke every once in a while and was craving guacamole this time so I found Laredo on this site. It will now be a destination and well worth the drive from Jacksonville. Great food and service with both the guacamole and the steak/chicken quesadillas being top notch.
Friendly, fast and pretty good. Salsa was very tasty. Entrees are standard fare- good but not exceptional.
Yeah, you know, it's good. I enjoy the look of the restaurant and the people working there - nothing but niceness. Food is Mexican/Tex-Mex (can always tell by the way a chile relleno is prepped). I come from the land of Mexican eateries on every other corner, so guess I'm just used to them. Figure, for me, it's too much melted cheese, and thin enchiladas when stuffed with meat. Don't let 3 stars fool you, b/c I'm definitely coming back.

Sonny’s BBQ

230 South Temple Avenue
Starke, 32091
Reviews:
For fast food BBQ and Florida this place is a shining star. First off. The salad bar is the highlight of this place. What a great selection of things. The smoked chicken salad is amazing. The BBQ is really good, many many selections. Nothing will disappoint. As far as price it's a little past the middle but far from expensive. I'll be back. The dry ribs were awesome.
Sonny's is normally so so in my book but it seems to be the place stark goes for dinner and the service is better
It's Sonny's never been to a bad one. This particular one in a half way point for our motorcycle rides. As we love to try new places while we ride, Sonny's is an everyone's favorite!! Need a cup holder on the bike for that AWESOME Sweet Tea!

Cedar River Seafood

900 S Walnut St

Reviews:
It took us less than 3 minutes to be shown to our booth. We waited nearly and half hour or more for our food. The drinks were good! The food wasn't the best and I have had better. The waitress did an ok job of seeing about us and making sure everything was ok. She knew we had been sitting for awhile.
I love this place for shrimp,I stopped there on my way home from Savannah Ga .where i ate shrimp ,and let me say I got the best shrimp here.I will always stop in.
The food was served hot and delicious, always a fan of their fried shrimp. They would have been a 5 star restaurant if they rip out the old carpet replace the weird tile ceiling and replace the 70's paneling. Don't get in a hurry here the place had about 4 other couples eating and it took a long time for the food to cook. we were done eating for at least 15 min. and waiting on the check the waitress just disappeared, way under staffed, maybe she was also the cook, it took long enough for that to be the case. The food makes up for a lot of the short comings though. I'll be back!!!!

Grannies Restaurant

Reviews:
I should have read the "Not Recommended" reviews first. Gotta say a positive was staff was really friendly -and i got service chop chop at high noon lunch rush. Roast pork special wasnt, bout chipped a tooth on piece of pork but the mashed and gravy were pretty good and greens I liked. Could have sanded a floor and scoured the tub with the cornbread. Worst thing though- I sat at counter and had misfortune of noticing view into kitchen every time door swung open. disgusting dirty with meat sitting out on table etc.. I like sausage even knowing how its made but had i seen this view before ordering I would have walked out.
It is so hard to find a decent place for breakfast in this area. This is superb! Biscuits are excellent eggs cooked right, the ham has a wonderful smoked flavor & the home fries are light and tasty. We will come back!!!
Homestyle country cooking as advertised. The fried chicken is cooked to order and it was delicious! Sides are also homemade and thus was evident in the mashed potatoes and gravy. Had green beans as a second side and they were good too. Solid meal all around. Nice service and very friendly. It is good food in a small town and not expensive but delicious. If you are expecting a gourmet dinner from an elegant New York bistro, you're not only in the wrong place but you're expectations are unrealistic. Go here and enjoy the food and warmth!

The Downtown Grill

301 E Call St

Reviews:
I ordered a simple hamburger cooked medium and It came back burnt very well done. I ordered onion rings and got french fries. The waitress didn't act like she cared a whole lot, but brought me my onion rings anyway. The hamburger wasnt very big, but tasted okay even with all the burnt crust on it. The onion rings were good, but the fried batter was falling off the onion which means it was not prepared correctly.
Amazing food .. Shotgun shrimp is off the chain. Great bar and friendly staff. Great live music on Friday nights and other nights.
So this place needs two ratings. One for the bar and one for the food. The bar: 4 stars! good atmosphere, good music, good drinks and prices. The food: 2 stars... Everything came out over cooked. The steak, to say the least, was sad and over priced, Thin and tasteless. But The onion rings were good. I feel this a place to order only fried foods (bar food). We thought it was a restaurant but really it's a bar.
