The Lab brings great bagels and coffee to Seminole Heights

It’s a good day to be a coffee lover in the city of Tampa. The Lab Coffee has long delighted Tampa locals and visitors alike with their rotating array of meticulously sourced beans. Their very mission is to change the way you taste and appreciate coffee. The owners are ready to expand and have officially taken over the space formerly occupied by Blind Tiger at 4304 N Florida Avenue.

“The amount of love from today 🥺🫠 y’all are incredible,” wrote The Lab team in an Instagram post after its first day open. “Yuuuuge love to everyone who came through opening weekend 🥺 west tampa ain’t going anywhere btw in case there was any concern.”


The Lab offers way more than just coffee. This experimental crew has whipped up breakfast bombs like the bbq chorizo burrito, Philly cheesesteak flatbreads, crumb cake pastries, and even more sweet delights lathered in guava. An official opening date is still TBA, but you can keep up with the coffee shop on Instagram.

The Lab already operates another brick-and-mortar at 1703 W State St in Hyde Park where you can enjoy their latest roast, and good conversation with the entire team 7 days a week.

This new local shop will be joined by a new tea room down the block operated by the owners of Seamaid’s Creamery.
