Something About Tampa: DI Coffee Bar.

I never really noticed it until recently, but Tampa is the spot for foodies. Whether you're looking for a hole-in-the-wall, a cozy coffee spot, or an original restaurant concept you wouldn't find in most other places, it's more than likely that Tampa has one! After reading about Davis Island Coffee Bar (DI Coffee) on Letters and Pearls a few months back, I knew I had to go see this little coffee bar for myself (do yourself a favor and check her post out for better pictures...I was in a rush and didn't get too many great shots!).

Despite the fact that I refer to myself as a semi-blogger, I am not a coffee connoisseur. Aren't those supposed to go hand in hand, after all? If you ever catch me posting a picture of myself holding a mug, there is a 99% chance that it is actually hot tea. While I do like coffee, too much of it makes me break out in awful cystic acne. TMI? Probably. I digress.

Because of the aforementioned coffee issue, I opted for my usual: chai tea latte with soy or almond milk. Let me just say: DELICIOUS. I love that it came in a mug vs. a paper cup. As cheesy as it sounds, it really is a homey touch, especially when I'm catching up with a friend I haven't seen in awhile. 

Because I am a monster when I haven't had breakfast, I also snagged some avocado toast. While it may have been slightly overpriced (about $4 for this little nugget piece of toast...), it was freshly made right across the bar and it was delicious. As an "every once in awhile" treat, I would definitely say it was worth the couple extra bucks vs. a pastry.

While I didn't spend much (if any) time inside, I can safely say that I will for sure be visiting DI Coffee Bar again soon. I recently started volunteering at Tampa General Hospital a whopping mile down the road, so I hope my chai latte will become a semi-regular treat after a shift.

In other plainly obvious news: Christmas is just around the corner! It's practically here! Let the craziness begin...I can't wait to spend a few days off from work and school to celebrate with some of my favorite people. 

What are your plans for the holidays?
