Coffeehouses Brew Unique Experience for Locals

Feb 16th 2011 8:00AM / by Nanette Wiser

Unique coffeehouses double as a sanctuary, especially when stocked with free Wi-Fi, fresh brewed java, and homemade desserts and savories. Make one of these your home away from home.

Cafe Bohemia: Dangling a coffee cup sign over Central Avenue, this luscious lounge and a garden patio will help awaken the artist within. Enjoy the earth mama vibe, from the craft brews and coffee drinks to the flatbread pizzas and warm brownies. The spoken word performances and live music make for a very Greenwich Village experience.
937 Central Ave., downtown St. Petersburg; 727-895-4495

Cafe Kili: African art, free wireless Internet access, live music (Monday, Thursday, Saturday) and a 15-person conference room make this USF hangout popular. Enjoy frozen frappes (white mocha), fruity smoothies, cafe con leche, homemade soups, breakfast sandwiches, and a superior focaccia topped with roast beef, bacon and provolone.
5731 E. Fowler Ave.; 813-988-2879

Kahwa Coffee Roasting: Organic cookies and muffins, salads, quiche, perfect pastries and robust fresh-roasted coffee blends and caramel lattes star at both eco-friendly hot spots, where you can relax in the sun with your pup and enjoy free Wi-Fi. Very San Francisco hip.
275 2nd St. N., downtown St. Pete; 727-823-4700
204 2nd Ave. S., Old Northeast; 727-821-1942

Indian Shores Coffee Company: With live music Saturday night, this adorable bungalow artfully adorned serves light snacks, killer cappuccino and sweets. It's the perfect meeting place before or after walking the beach.
19221 Gulf Blvd., Indian Rocks Beach; 727-593-1707

Sacred Grounds: This eclectic coffeehouse features role playing, game nights, live music and vegan delights (wraps, artichoke dip). Here, USF students and young professionals sip Yogi breath deep tea, herbal temptations (mango and apple fruit), smokey lapsang suchong, chai and smoothies (kiwi, melon, pineapple).
4819 E. Busch Blvd.; 813-983-0837
