Buddy Brew Coffee, Various Locations
Buddy Brew (code name BBC) is a staple here in Tampa. With locations at Oxford Exchange, Hyde Park Village, Sarasota, and their flagship store on Kennedy Blvd, BBC is passionate about bringing their love of coffee to the people. Some say (like me) that they have the BEST playlist around, so it’s a great place to either get some work done or wind down with your friends. Try the Cold Brew Float – you won’t regret it!

Bandit Coffee Co, Downtown St. Pete
Bandit is a true crowd favorite in the Grand Central District of St. Pete, offering a beautiful minimalistic interior, community tables, and your choice between two different espresso types as the base of your drink. Friday through Sunday, you will find doughnuts provided by The Hole Donuts – in unique flavors like “Cannoli” and “Death By Chocolate” – if you arrive early enough to snag ‘em.

Piquant, Hyde Park Village
French cuisine meets authentic craft coffee in this adorable Tampa coffee shop located in our beloved Hyde Park Village. Sweet crepes and an iced latte are my go-to combination, but you are more than welcome to get lost in their extravagant pastry selection to pair with your drink. Unwind on the patio or take it on the go and wander around village shops for a delightful day out!

Station House, Downtown St. Pete
Proudly serving local roaster Kahwa’s coffee and Tebella tea, Station House is a gorgeous place to explore. If you have yet to try the miracle drink that is matcha green tea, let this be your opportunity to taste Tebella’s summer selections – including Honey Lavender Iced Matcha and Matcha Lemonade. You’ll thank me for that recommendation, I promise.
