GPUG Summit 2016: Fancy Coffee Shops & Restaurant Options in Downtown Tampa (With Map)

When I travel to a new city, I want to be sure I don’t miss a good coffee shop.

When I attend Summit 2016 I will spend most of my time in the Tampa Convention Center. But I am sure I can make time to sneak out for a good cappuccino.  Some potential destinations are:

The Lab Tampa

Buddy Brew Coffee

Buddy Brew at Oxford Exchange

Ginger Beard Coffee

Foundation Coffee

Victory Coffee

Kahwa Coffee Roasting

(There is also a Starbucks in my hotel…but that will be a last resort.)

And if I am very lucky I will even have a chance to try one of these restaurants, which all look intriguing and have great ratings on YELP.



Rooster & the Till

Edison: Food+drink Lab

Oxford Exchange (b’fast/lunch)

The Refinery

Yeoman’s Cask & Lion

Anise Global Gastrobar

Bizou Brasserie

I am sure there are many more delicious options in Tampa, but I only chose ones that can be easily reached from my downtown hotel. After all, at GPUG Summit it’s all about the sessions. Not the food or the parties. Well, maybe a little……. You might also find me at one (or all) of these events.

Rock N Rave

Buccaneer Bash

Fastpath Party

VIP Party at Summit 2016

All of these locations, and more, are on my Google Map for GPUG Summit 2016 for easy reference.

Will you be at Summit 2016? Do you have a downtown Tampa recommendation? Let me know.
