5 Best Coffee Shops in Hyde Park

A Story By

Who doesn’t love trying new coffee shops? We always say it’s not just about the coffee, but it’s about the experience! There are so many things that make a good coffee shop, a good coffee shop. From having a good cup of coffee, to having an aesthetic space, there are so many factors that go into it.

We want to share the 5 best coffee shops in Hyde Park so that you can enjoy your next cup of joe in a new spot with a great cup of coffee in one hand and a smile on your face.

We wish that the puppy came with the coffee! Buddy Brew is widely known across the Bay for having some of the best coffee in the game and for a good reason. If you have heard of Buddy Brew but haven’t gotten coffee directly from their shops, it might be because their coffee is used at establishments around the city.

They have 6 locations in Tampa Bay as well as a Brewtruck that changes locations all over the Bay. We absolutely love their iced caramel lattes, matcha, and their cold brew. This is the perfect work, meeting or date spot!

Blind Tiger Cafe is another Tampa favorite, so we had to include it on this list! Although it is technically located in SOHO, it’s only half a mile from Hyde Park so it was worth a mention. This spot has such a cool atmosphere and coffee that is to die for.

Our favorite drinks include the vanilla butternut latte, matcha, and their cappuccino. If you’re  a little hungry, you also have to try their açaí bowls. They have plenty of outlets and space to work, making this a great place to pretend it’s your office for the day.

Dwntwn Social is next on our list and this shop is a cool one! They serve all different types of fun drinks as well as a good cup of classic coffee. You can get anything from protein enhanced shakes, teas, coffees, and even waffles. This is a great spot to check out if you are wanting more than just a caffeinated beverage. 

Not only do all of their drinks taste super yummy, but they look great too! They have so many different flavors to chose from, making it the perfect spot for just about anyone with differing taste buds. Our favorites from here are the Kennedy waffle, the mango waui tea, and the pineapple naranja tea if you want something fun and different. We also love their frappe!

Last, but certainly not least, is Jet City Espresso. Jet City Espresso not only has really good coffee, but amazing pastries that you have to try as well. This little shop in Hyde Park feels homey and welcoming, and is the perfect spot to grab yourself a good cup of coffee and a delicious pastry on the go. It feels especially homey because it is actually located inside of a cute little home.

If you go inside, their space is covered in local art, adding to the cool, comfortable vibe here. We absolutely love the Cafe Borgia, Milky Way, and the
