Best Old Fashioned (Tampa): Ella’s Americana Folk Art Cafe

Ella’s Americana Folk Art Cafe

Never doubt you’ll get a good drink at Ella’s by ordering its take on the classic Old Fashioned (my personal go-to). Strong, well-mixed with Kentucky bourbon, simple syrup, orange and cherry bitters—and the best I’ve had in Tampa so far. Plus, Ella’s staff is great and they’ve got a comfortable set-up both inside and outside that’ll give you the chill vibes you need to truly enjoy the experience. Have a better spot to get an Old Fashioned? HMU. But until then, (don’t) fight me!
