HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Every time I’m in downtown Tampa Bamboozle Café is a MUST. If your into fresh, healthy, and delicious do not miss this place. I have tried many of the fresh rolls as well as the Pho and I have never been disappointed.

Adorable place, friendly, helpful service with ample menu selections. Lots of locals while we were there so that was a good sign. We had avocado spring roll and 2 noodle salads, shrimp and grilled pork. All were delicious! Will definitely be back! Highly recommend!

This little Restaurant offers some of the freshest, new age Vietnamese fusion food. The rolls are outstanding, and the smoothies are fresh and delicious. The aroma of Pho greets you, as people sit happily and eat gorgeous salads and bowls. Well done, we will return!
