Vegan, Gluten-Free Kitchen & Bakery Opens at The Element

The Element, a residential tower in the heart of downtown Tampa, is home to local and national gems. Earl of Sandwich opened its doors to the public in May next to Paddy Wagon Irish Pub. Burgerim, a restaurant offering inventive sliders, is set to open this year on the ground floor on Franklin Street.

Element bolsters food and drink options 

Both Kahwa Coffee and Duckweed Urban Market have long satiated the caffeine and produce needs of Element residents and those in the South Tampa area. Farmacy Vegan Kitchen and Bakery is the latest concept to join apartment tower’s roster. Located inside Duckweed at 803 North Tampa Street, Farmacy offers healthy meals and baked goods.

Those who are either vegan, gluten-free or both will rejoice with a glimpse at their menu. The Mediterranean salad is a quick, filling delight. Their sticky buns — gluten-free option available — offer a powerful punch of sweetness. They also bake myriad varieties of doughnuts with savory  toppings — fruit loops are our personal favorite.

Mix of baked goods and meals on the go

Creamy cashew mac and cheese, fruit parfaits, smashed avocado toast, banana apple bread and so much more are being whipped up daily at Farmacy. Keep up with the 100% plant based business by visiting their website and following them on Facebook and Instagram.
