Wake up and smell the coffee and kombucha.
Elevation Coffee has a new home in Tampa Heights at 1607 N Franklin St., alongside other Flower Crown Kombucha beverage vendors.
The first day of Elevation in this new shared location was Monday, August 1. Adorned with high rustic ceilings and a two-story indoor waterfall, this space is the café’s largest location to date.
The spacious outdoor patio, which once belonged to Foundation Coffee’s now-closed Tampa Heights cafe, is furnished with different types of plants and seating. The lattice-like ceiling filters out some sun, but it can definitely still get very hot up there. But luckily, Elevation and Flower Crown Kombucha sell a variety of frozen drinks that can help you endure the Florida summer.
Elevation opened its second location outside of co-working space Brave Haus earlier this year, just two buildings away from its brand new location in Tampa Heights. At Brave Haus, Elevation had a small bar that served a somewhat limited menu of caffeinated drinks, but at its new location it shares a full-service counter with Flower Crown.
In addition to kombucha, coffee, tea, lattes, nitro cold brew, and mocktails, the commonplace also offers several pastries and treats like macaroons, muffins, and cookies. Flower Crown, which debuted on Franklin Street in January 2021, offers a constant rotation of kombucha on tap, as its current flavors include Lime Mojito, Pink Passionfruit and “Pineapple” Forever. .
And yes, the kombucha spot often honors its namesake by selling fresh flowers inside the tavern.
Elevation also recently started serving breakfast burritos at its new Tampa Heights location, which can be ordered with steak and chicken, but can also be vegan. Hummus, its signature waffles (which include gluten-free options), oatmeal and other small plates will soon be added to Elevation’s menu alongside its breakfast burritos.
And according to Elevation’s social media, the Tampa-based coffee and roaster will soon be adding a line of exotic spiced drinks that have a “unique flavor profile that has to be tasted to be believed.” A specialty coffee representative also told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay that its new location in Tampa Heights will soon host a variety of events such as latte art contests, coffee tastings and even a coffee club.
His new Tampa Heights shared cafe is now open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
And although Foundation Coffee closed the same space in 2020, its Ybor City and Riverview locations remain open.
Elevation’s flagship at 4952 Northdale Blvd no. 101 in Carrollwood also remains open seven days a week. For more information on the roaster and cafe, follow his Facebook and Instagram at @elev8coffee.
