Best Mac & Cheese in St. Pete

The origins of mac & cheese go back to 1769, supposedly from a recipe that Thomas Jefferson brought back from Italy. Kraft first packaged Mac n Cheese in 1937.  It became a big hit during WWII. If you were a kid growing up in America (or Canada or Australia), you’ve probably had Kraft Macaroni and Cheese many times. They are still the #1 selling packaged, instant mac & cheese.  The original homemade from scratch dish was baked, and it’s so good that way, but rarely seen in restaurants. (We have two baked ones on the list.)

This ultimate comfort food isn’t just for kids, especially when it’s kicked up with other more adult ingredients. For this list, we decided to try a broad variety of mac & cheese since there are so many different takes on it in St. Pete.

Some of these are more elaborate than others, and some are plain and simple, closer to the mac & cheese you had as a kid.

Here are the 10 Best Mac and Cheese in St. Pete for 2021
