University of South Florida: Places You MUST Try

A Story By

The University of South Florida is located in Tampa in the Temple Terrace/North Tampa area. In order for you to make the most of your USF experience, we have created a list of some of the best spots closest to campus!

Good cuisine is never hard to find in Tampa.

1. Bagels Plus

Stop by Bagels Plus for the best breakfast sandwiches the USF area has to offer! You can choose from almost any flavor of bagel and cream cheese, as well as adding meat or cheese to your sandwich. This hidden gem is located next to the intersection of Fletcher Ave. and Bruce B Downs Blvd. and only minutes from campus.

Our go-to order is an asiago bagel toasted with chive cream cheese! You will not be disappointed.

Monday–Saturday | 6AM–4PM
Sunday | 7AM–3PM

📍2706 E Fletcher Ave, Tampa, FL 33612

Milk teas, fruit teas, coffee, oh my! Teastori has just about every kind of bubble tea you could ask for. Formally known as Bobacup, this rebranded shop is a USF favorite. We recommend trying their Split Cup so you can get two different drinks in one!

Teastori is also a great spot for University of South Florida students to study or work on group projects!

Daily | 11AM–10PM

📍2732 E Fowler Ave, Tampa, FL 33612

3. Grain & Berry

Grain & Berry will always have a special place in our hearts! With 7 locations in the Tampa area, you’re bound to find your way to one of them. Grain & Berry has so many options for smoothies, superfood bowls, flatbreads, avocado toast, juices, and so many other things. Grain & Berry has two locations within 10 minutes from campus–one off of Fowler and one off of Bruce B Downs in New Tampa. The superfood bowls are a must-try!

Take a study trip to Grain & Berry to enjoy their yummy food and comfortable atmosphere while getting some work done.
