'1905 Day' features Columbia Restaurant food at rolled-back prices

On Sunday, Sept. 22, Columbia Restaurants will once again roll back their prices for “1905 Day.”

This year will be the 108th anniversary of Florida's oldest restaurant, still owned and operated by fourth and fifth generation founding family members.

For more than 30 years, “1905 Day” has been celebrated with a special menu with the prices of yesteryear for one day only.

From noon until 7 p.m., guests will enjoy the restaurant's Spanish cuisine for the prices they might have paid back when the restaurant first opened.

Tampa Bay area locations include The Columbia Ybor City, Sarasota, Celebration and Clearwater Beach. The location in St. Augustine will also be participating.

Menu items will include:

• Chicken and Yellow Rice “Ybor”: $2.95

• Boliche (eye round of beef): $2.95

• Merluza “Russian Style” (breaded white fish): $2.95

• Columbia's Original “1905” Salad: $1.95

• Spanish Bean or Cuban Black Bean Soup: cup 50 cents or bowl 75 cents

• Sangria: glass 95 cents or pitcher $4.95

• Flan: 50 cents

• Coffee: 5 cents

On “1905 Day” reservations are not accepted, and take-out items are not available.

The annual event is very popular and lines can get long to be seated, so keep that in mind when planning to attend.

The Columbia Café at the Tampa Bay History Center and The Columbia Restaurant Café at Tampa International Airport will not be offering the “1905 Day” menu, but will be open and serving from their regular menu.
