Westchase is known as the “live, work, play” neighborhood in northwest Tampa. Local restaurants, hiking trails, and farmers markets, are a few of the highlights in the area. Here are our top recommendations of things to do in Westchase: 

1. Atlas Gourmet Pizza

  • Right down the street from Apt CoWork, you’ll find Atlas Gourmet Pizza. Atlas offers pizza, flatbreads, salads, and sandwiches. We highly recommend you try the garlic knots. If you want to try something unique and delicious– try “The Blonde.” This pizza features chicken, brie, candied walnuts, and honey drizzle. If you’re in the mood for something more classic, you cannot go wrong with their pepperoni pizza, “The Classic!” Not only is the food incredible and gourmet, but the staff is also delightful!  

2. The Fountainhead Wine & Beer Bar 

  • In the mood for both pizza and locally crafted beer? Head across the street to The Fountainhead Wine and Beer Bar! The chef at Atlas provides The Fountainhead with a selection of small bites to complement their beer and wine offerings. The ambiance at The Fountainhead provides a wonderful neighborhood feel. It’s the perfect place to bring your coworkers and enjoy happy hour! 

3. Northwest Equestrian Park and Trails  

  • Explore northwest Tampa’s natural beauty at Northwest Equestrian Park and Trails. Enjoy 6 miles of trails where you can hike, trail ride with your horse, bird watch, or relax at one of the picnic tables. The park features various scenic natural areas, including open fields, freshwater marshes, and oak hammocks. We recommend making a trip to the park a priority for your itinerary when planning things to do in Westchase!  

4. Ellie’s Breakfast and Lunch 

  • A classic locally owned staple, Ellie’s Breakfast and Lunch offers breakfast and lunch seven days a week! They are also open for dinner four days a week. We recommend you try their Philly Cheesesteak, or the French Toast. However, everything on the menu is amazing. The service is also superb, and everyone is friendly and cheerful! Reviewers of the restaurant boast about their fast service. Call ahead or dine inside during your lunch break, you’ll get fast and quality food just in time to head back to the office.  

5. Westchase Locale Market  

  • Support local shops, eat good food, and interact with the Westchase community at the Westchase Locale Market. This Fall farmers market occurs every second Saturday of the month in Autumn and features 30+ vendors. Enjoy fresh baked goods, handmade jewelry, plants, homemade candles, and so much more!
