Food Network has a 'Most Instagrammable Restaurants in America' list naming one spot per state, and Tampa's Oxford Exchange is holding it down for Florida. We're not shocked by the designation.
Since Oxford Exchange opened, locals and tourists alike have spiced up their feeds by flocking to the restaurant/coffee shop/tea bar/boutique/bookstore and now champagne bar.
From latte art to cush chairs, every inch of Oxford Exchange is picturesque. Not to mention the avocado toast juxtaposed against the roaring waterfall in the center of the dining room. The disappointing thing about Food Network's list is the lack of effort it put into describing each location. There's just one sentence about why Oxford Exchange was crowned Florida's top IG spot: "This gallery wall honors historic figures," with a photo of the staircase lined with said historical figures. A little bland, Food Network.
The Food Network nod, however, comes after Oxford Exchange, which sits at 420 W Kennedy Blvd. near the University of Tampa, appeared on two 2019 lists: OpenTable's "100 Best Brunch Restaurants in America" and "100 Best Restaurants in America for a Big Night Out.”
Hours for Oxford Exchange (and the champagne bar) are 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5:30 p..m. Saturday and Sunday.
