Jackie's Tampa City Guide
Buddy Brew is a Jackie favorite. They have locations all over the Tampa Bay region, but we love their brand new spot in Downtown Tampa. You know we are iced, oat milk latte kind of ladies, and theirs is one of our favorites! Our love for Buddy Brew transcends visiting one of their locations for a morning pick me up, we order their beans in bulk to brew at Jackie HQ.
Fancy Free Nursery has the most gorgeous location in Tampa. They do everything from wedding flowers and event decorating to landscape design. Their space is great for a quick photoshoot and picking up flowers for your workspace or dining room table. It is run by a husband and wife who have a passion for things that grow! They even host a variety of workshops each month to help you with your green thumb.
Foundation Coffee Co. has a handful of locations, like Buddy Brew, and their Tampa location is a must-see when you are in the area. People attribute the atmosphere of this local coffee shop to that of New York or LA cafes. The best part? It is right in our own backyard here in Tampa. Next time you are here, try their almond milk chai.
If you couldn’t tell by now, we love coffee. We are here to make sure you have the inside scoop on the best places to get caffeinated in Tampa, because there are so many! King State is all about Florida. It is run by Tampa locals who want to give back to their community and they do so by roasting beans and brewing beers. Whether you are looking for an early morning coffee, or a post-work drink with a friend, King State is always a great option. If you are wondering what we ordered in the photo above, we tried their iced vanilla latte and it was as delicious as it looks! PS. They also make their vanilla syrup and almond milk in house.
If you’ve spent any amount of time in Tampa, you’ve probably heard of Oxford Exchange. It is the perfect space to meet a friend for lunch, coffee or a drink. You can even do some boutique shopping while you visit. As if that wasn’t enough, it is great for working women looking for a change of scenery or local Tampa students looking for an off campus study spot. Join their exclusive Commerce Club for an inspiring co-working space. Honestly, we could probably live here.
Now that we’ve given you all of our coffee secrets, here is our favorite spot for a sweet treat. Sweet Soul has everything from vegan soft serve and acai bowls, to healthy juices and smoothies. It is the perfect stop for those warm Florida days to cool off and treat yourself. Their space is also a great location for snapping some photos with their hand-painted murals. Be sure to bring your camera next time you stop by!
