Mansions threaten this quaint community
For a while, it looked like you couldn't get a BLT anymore in South Tampa. I'm just as fond of focaccia and goat cheese as anyone else, but sometimes I just want the same thing I ordered in coffee shops when I was 15: a BLT on toast with mayo. Last summer, I was dying for one, and the only place I could think of to go was Steak & Shake, and there was a line a mile long. I never did get one till the Coffee Cup II opened on Gandy. Monday, after I gave my $2.75 order, the waitress said, "And I thank you very much."
