SALT & PEPPER CAFE BEGINNINGS & OWNERS
Salt & Pepper Cafe was created by owners Lisa Prather and Matthew Smith after renovating the premises formerly held by Theresa’s Restaurant.
Firstly, Chef Lisa is a Pinellas County native who received her culinary degree at the Art Institute of Tampa and the University of Tampa. She runs A Fresh Connection Catering, Cafe & Bakery, and Florida Chefs Workshop, a shared-use commercial kitchen that allows culinary entrepreneurs to create and process their products for the consumer market. She became acquainted with the location that is now Salt & Pepper Cafe through her catering company.
Secondly, Chef Matthew is a St. Petersburg native who has worked in the hotel and culinary industry for over 25 years and was trained as a chef at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. “We felt we could do this and do it well,” Smith said of achieving the Salt & Pepper concept. “We have some incredible plans and are really happy to be here.”
