Funky Fun and fabulous

I am visiting USFwith two high school Juniors in Florida to check out several colleges over spring break. We were about to have breakfast at a national chain restaurant but had to do a U turn to get there. We saw Felicitous while turning and we're attracted by its fun funky look and side patio... read more

I visited this funky coffee shop for the first time today, based on the tripadvisor reviews. It is a little out of the way - but once you find it, it's a very cool, fun little place right off Fowler. I ordered a mocha latte and a Belgium waffle. If rating the coffee alone, they would get five stars. It... More

Thank you so much for visiting Wonderbebe100 and thank you for the compliments on the mocha drink that you enjoyed! We are saddened that you were disappointed by the other treats and just wanted to let you know that, while we are a very small establishment without the adequate amount of kitchen space needed in order to create delectable desserts...

My husband and I remember shops just like this one in San Francisco back in the sixties. The coziness, hospitality and look of the place just took us right back to an amazing era in our lives. It is officially our new date cafe! We had some amazing Caprese paninis and some cafe au laits, both hit the spot in... More

I got lost trying to find the place and ended up in the starbucks parking lot. I almost gave up but decided to call and have them guide me in, and I'm so glad I did. Kale/caprese salad is fantastic and my Americano is perfect. If I lived in the area I would frequent this little gem. I'm definitely coming... More

Thank you so much for the sweet words. We are so happy that you managed to find us through the concrete jungle, even though we are on the unbeaten path. We hope the 'Floridian' is just as wonderful of an experience as the other treats were for you! More

We like to go there some evenings and we can take our dog and drink coffee outside on the "porch." The drinks are really good. I wish they had more food available. Staff are always very nice and helpful. They even have a place out front where you can fix your bike which we thought was really cool.

My husband and I are starving for a coffee shop with real soul. Finally we gave up. Soul in Tampa. Forgetta bout it. We heard about an independent coffee house near USF. So off we go. Both expecting to find it either closed or playing loud music. Boy were we surprised. This Tiny little house tucked back in the lot... More

This is a tiny purple house, set back under huge trees, just off Fletcher in the USF area. It is so quaint and so artsy, everything is delightfully painted...there's even art on the ceiling! If you are in a hurry, it's not the place to go. Service is very slow and methodical, but everything is fresh and brought to you... More

This place is a hidden little coffee house right off Fowler Ave. Don't let its small size fool you there is awesome coffee and treats here! We stopped in with our friends for a quick coffee but ended up ordering some food. My husband had a chicken panini which was pretty disappointing so skip that. It had a lot of... More

Stopped here on our way to a boardwalk not too far away. We almost missed it, thinking it was in the plaza across the street, since it's listed on the sign there. Got a caramel machiatto, a honey, cinnamon, whipped cream waffle, and the boyfriend got a panini, with chocolate milk. Workers were really friendly and made sure we were... More

My sister and I went here because it was close and something to do besides the bar scene. It's a cute little place that's quirky but works :) will definitely be back! I loved it!!
