Inside the Box is a vibrant space reflective of the neighborhood and community in which we sit.

Located in downtown Tampa and the Westshore business district; we offer good ole’ Southern favorites along with inventive originals influenced by the flavors of our city.

But we are much more than a typical lunch spot. Here, good food and good deeds go together like rice and beans. As the social enterprise of Metropolitan Ministries, our little eatery not only serves the finest breakfast and lunch, we also help those hungry for a fresh start as they transition out of homelessness.
