The Hideaway Cafe gets a mention in Creative Loafing's "Ask the Locals: Olga Bof". “It’s just one of those secret St. Pete places. It’s a beautiful place, and it’s all about the music. They shush you [laughs]. A beautiful, intimate space that by the way has some of the best pizza in town — when I need a fix, I have the Jackson at the Hideaway.” [Creative Loafing Tampa]

"Looking for pristine sound, tasty food and an elegant atmosphere? It's tough to beat this beautiful venue in St Pete's hopping Grand Central District" [Gulf to Bay Magazine]
