Café Alfresco

Sidewalk Café & Bistro

Relax and enjoy delicious cuisine in the casual atmosphere of our unique Tampa Bay-area restaurant, located in downtown Dunedin, FL, at the crossroads of the Pinellas Trail and Main street. “Alfresco” means ‘fresh air’ and you’ll feel like you’re dining in the open air on our beautiful, climate-controlled patio.

The menu at Café Alfresco is inspired by countries around the world, combined with great American cuisine and made fresh daily.

Our menu is also available for take out. Order online here for pick up or delivery.

The Café is reasonably priced and fun. Bikers, walkers and skaters from the Pinellas Trail along with avid shoppers find it an excellent place to pause and relax. The restaurant features a selection of summer specials as well as a take-out menu.  Enjoy a leisurely cocktail or sample our wide selection of beer and wine at the full service bar. To satisfy a sweet tooth, the pastry selection is mouth watering, made fresh daily and complimented by a cup of coffee or cappuccino. Café Alfresco is your downtown Dunedin destination for a refreshing light bite or a hearty entrée.

Our outdoor patio is pet friendly. To ensure you and your pup have the best possible experience with us, please review the City of Dunedin’s Doggy Dining Rules.

Lunch today couldn't have been better. Our server was extremely friendly,polite,and helpful in assisting us with our orders. Ive been wanting a good Cuban and have had a hard time finding one. Today I was well rewarded. It was so delicious. My Spicy Bloody Mary was equally as good. I love going to Cafe Alfresco and love to introduce new people to this great restaurant.

My oh my, it’s all about the Blueberry Pie 🥧
I locked my keys in my car in downtown Dunedin and waited for AAA at Cafe Alfresco. The fresh baked blueberry pie made all my troubles fade away. Best Pie I’ve ever had. We ordered lots of other delicious apps and drinks but we ordered the pie 1st!!! Great service and located right on the Pinellas Trail, lots of fun people watching opportunities.

Perfectly located on the corner of the trail and Main St. Someone from our veterinary hospital eats there every day. The food is fresh and delicious and the desserts are addictive. Have never had a bad meal and the servers treat you like a VIP. Totally love this place. Even the coffee is good (and I'm a coffee snob 🙂
