The Columbia is Florida’s Oldest Restaurant, founded in Tampa's historic Ybor City in 1905. Family-owned and operated for 116 years, the restaurant has earned acclaim for old-world charm as well as for its award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine and wine list.

Ybor City Historical Walking Tour with Max your Tour Guide and Owner-In the fall of 1885 Vincente Martinez-Ybor purchased 40 acres of swampland and the saga of Ybor City began. Eventually, more than 230 factories were located here, employing 12,000 tabaqueros (cigar makers) and producing over half a billion cigars a year.

The rich history of Ybor encompasses manufacturing, immigration, organized crime and revolution. Teddy Roosevelt marched his Rough Riders here and walked the streets of this industry town with José Martí, the leader of Cuban independence.

Now one of only three National Historic Landmark Districts in Florida, Ybor City’s unique history will come alive as you walk the area with award winning guides.
