That will be your first reaction upon walking into Tampa's new Oxford Exchange in Tampa. After I walked in the doors, I found my friend Leslie (Dash of Les) waiting for me - in the Library / Book Store. I looked at her and said "Where are we?!" she replied "Not in Tampa".
Walking towards the dining room, I found a store offering everything from candles, local honey, bath products, jewelry and household decor. I jokingly stated that it was like a high end Cracker Barrel - we window shopped while we waited for our table!

I am looking forward to trying Oxford Exchange again once the hype dies down a bit. Overall, this is a really cool place. Like Leslie said, it doesn't feel like you are in Downtown Tampa while inside of this gorgeous building.
