It’s hard to talk about the oldest family-owned restaurants in Florida without mentioning Columbia Restaurant. Not only is this the oldest restaurant in the whole state, with beginnings back in 1905, but it also is still family-owned and operated, which really makes this hotspot a gem. The menu is peppered with dishes of Spanish and Cuban descent, which represent the long-standing genealogy and family history that this restaurant holds dear.
