“Simply Charming with quiche to die for!”
Review of Jet City Espresso

Jet City Espresso
Ranked #13 of 79 Coffee & Tea in Tampa
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 April 2015

A tiny Seminole Heights house sitting directly on Florida Avenue with a tiny parking lot out back - don't let the unassuming, tucked away location cause you to pass it by unnoticed! Open the door into a converted open, airy coffee shop decorated with warm color and comfortable seating. Place your orders at the counter and then find a seat. They will bring out your order. Although they are known for coffee, I was very happy with their tea options and they have juice as well.

Today they displayed 3 beautiful quiches and offered other selections from the chalkboard on the wall. The Rosemary and Goat Cheese was served covered with diced tomato. The lovely rosemary aroma and fluffy taste were outstanding. There were gluten free options, cheddar & bacon and cheese & spinach available as well. The service was helpful and friendly.

This place has the feeling of a friends gathering place or a nice read over breakfast. Warm and inviting with great fare!

After outstanding reviews online, on my 4 hour layover in Tampa I had to pay Jet City Espresso a visit. The barista was friendly, the snacks were AWESOME and I loved the creativity of her menu (though it was small) and the atmosphere was laid bsck. I visited the one in the corner of her house. This little café was very tiny. I was expecting to find a table in a corner of a coffeehouse to finish some homework and sip on my Honey and Orange latte (Which was incredible!) But what I found was just 1 table, 1 barista and a few posters and guitars. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because it closes at 2, which is insanely early, its noy locally roasted, and the cafe was so small it was crowded with 2 guests. Nonetheless, if you're looking for some great Paleo snacks and good coffee, this place is worth a visit!

We found this spot on Yelp and loved it.
Coffee was great.
The staff was amazing and the customers that were there very friendly and started conversations.
I wish this spot was closer to home.
