Cozy and Buzz-y Coffee Houses

Nothing says “vacation” like whiling the hours away by lingering over your favorite drink. And when that drink is coffee or tea, nothing feels cozier than a neighborhood haunt. In St. Petersburg and nearby, indie coffee- and teahouses serve up a mix of locally and globally sourced drinks and eats, a relaxing atmosphere and souvenir potential, particularly when the coffee beans are roasted nearby.

If you can get a seat at the bar at Mazarro's Italian Market, don’t ask for anything “skinny” – much of the coffee menu reads like a dessert list, and baristas tempt you with bakery samples (biscotti!) as they move through the market. If you can’t find a seat (and they are hard to come by on a Saturday morning), pour yourself a cup of coffee from the self-serve carafe and stroll the market. You can always take home a pound of Mazarro’s coffee, which is roasted daily.
