Taylor Sam’s bringing iconic New Jersey breakfast eats to downtown St. Pete

Exterior of a restaurant with tall glass windows. A coming soon sign is posted on the front.

A taste of New Jersey is headed to the Sunshine City. Earlier this week St. Pete Rising reported that Taylor Sam’s would open at 312 3rd Street South. On Friday, November 18 signage officially went up on the space. We are ready the Taylor Ham vs Pork Roll discourse to arrive in the ‘Burg.

This new cafe is bringing the home style cooking of New Jersey to the heart of St. Pete. Prepare for mammoth, super savory breakfast sandwiches to jumpstart your morning. The cafe is the brainchild  of Executive Chef Scott Spivak and his wife Dawn Spivak. Taylor Sam’s was officially born in Brick NJ in 2013. For nearly 10 years they have satisfied the early morning cravings of diners in the Northeast. We hope they’re ready to satiate our southern palates.


Chef Scott’s and Dawn’s goal has always been to offer a great breakfast and lunch experience for the local residents and visitors to the Jersey Shore, write the Spivak’s on Taylor Sam’s website. With the creation of an eclectic and homestyle menu featuring “scratch cooking”, young Taylor Sam’s was groomed to harbor the same quality ingredients, personal service and values that Scott and Dawn had always offered the extended family that graced their doors.
