    There are no Mom and Pop shops near me

    There are three Starbucks within 5 minutes from my house. I've gone to each of them to meet up with friends or just to get away for a few minutes for an espresso and a cigar.

    For the life of me, I was trying to think of a nearby Coffee shop that I could visit and could not think of one. I checked the yellow pages online and found two shops but, they were a thirty minute drive minimum. That's a little out of the way.

    I wish there was someplace closer. All I have are the big chains (Starbucks, Panera Bread, Dunkin Donuts, etc).

    where are you in Tampa? I know of a few places...if you ever get out to Clearwater there is a place on Drew Street just past Hercules called New Harmony coffee and tea...they roast their own and are great people...

    Thanks Topher, I'm close to Clearwater. I'll have to look New Harmony up.

    Are you near St. Pete?

    We have a ton of coffee shops here (I own one called the Globe in downtown St. Pete). There's several others, and some are always opening and closing.
    don't lose hope!
    good luck
