5 Best Coffee Shops in Tampa Bay
If you are like many of our Marina Pointe residents, you may also love the sweet smell of coffee brewing in the morning and look forward to that first, frothy sip as you enjoy the beginning of a new day. While every morning in your new residence comes with one of the best sunrise waterfront views in Tampa, sometimes it’s nice to explore the town and have your morning coffee somewhere new. We asked around and taste-tested to find five of the best coffee shops in Tamp Bay! Take a look below.
Coming in at number one, we love to brag about it – introducing Qwench Juice Bar & DRNK Coffee + Tea in our very own Marina Landings town center. Explore their diverse menu, from a list of extravagantly flavored lattes and blended coffees with whip topping to the organic cold brews and authentic Americanos. There are even options for our tea lovers, plus snacks and smoothies. Stroll down the waterfront path and take in the soft sea breeze and gorgeous bay views with your favorite drink in hand.

Oxford Exchange takes multitasking to a new, luxury level. Not only is it one of the finest cafes in the area, but Oxford also houses a restaurant, bookstore, lifestyle gift store, co-working space, and design studio while also doubling as an events venue. The elegant design of this building makes it a standout in the area, commonly recognized by its key features: white-stained brick, checkerboard marble floors imported from Italy, steel beams supporting glass ceiling panels, and the gorgeous fountain statue at the epicenter of their garden restaurant. Peruse the assortment of novels and settle into one of the tufted leather couches with a good book and a caramel latte or a signature tea blend.
Location: 420 W. Kennedy Blvd. Tampa FL, 33606
Head down to Patrona Coffee & Coastal Café for a unique, beachside escape and true Floridian coffee experience. The café cabana is perfectly located on the water, minutes from Marina Pointe in the charming city of St. Petersburg. It is sure to keep the coastal vibes flowing after a day sailing on the bay or lying on the beach. Their freshly roasted espresso pairs perfectly with their homemade cinnamon rolls or crisp avocado toast.

A Tampa fan favorite is the famous Buddy Brew Coffee in Hyde Park Village, another charming town center minutes from Marina Pointe. Try their fantastic selection of handmade pastries and freshly roasted java, with the promise of carefully selected beans from the best coffee farmers in the world! Stroll through the array of boutiques and local shops with a warm or cold cup of joe for the ultimate Saturday experience.
