Blind Tiger Café- Ybor

Never before had the charm of Ybor’s historic district been better represented than at the new Blind Tiger Café. The rugged American made clothing brand Black and Denim and the Buddy Brew fueled expertise at The Blind Tiger are a perfect pair for this hip 7th Ave location.

Available at the bar was an internationally arranged assortment of coffees, teas and pastries promising a flashback to old fashioned quality with every sip. The baristas took the time to help me understand how important every step in the process of a coffee was and I found myself developing a new appreciation for the art.

If you’re looking to impress a date with a cozy, classic atmosphere and a drink full of heart and soul then there’s no other place in Ybor than The Blind Tiger Café.

Café Soleil- St. Pete Beach & Tierra Verde 

This is probably one of the most authentic French bakery/deli in the Tampa Bay area. Note– We have not been to France, but we spoke to another guest with a french accent and they were just as happy as we were so we figured that was solid. 🙂

They have two locations, one on St. Pete Beach and the other on Tierra Verde.

Check them out and enjoy a espresso wake me up shot, and come back again and again to try different pastries.

9th Bar Espresso- Dunedin

This is definitely one of the coolest spots around Dunedin and all of Tampa Bay for that matter. There is a tasty farm to table brunch every Sat and Sun, and is accessible just off the Pinellas Trail.

If you are a coffee connoisseur you will love it! They are always getting new roasts and are also updating the food menu on the regular.

Downtown Dunedin is a really cool place to enjoy a morning, afternoon, or evening party so put it on your calendar!
