By far one of the coolest coffee shops I’ve been to in awhile! The entire theme is so on point- from the logo to the decorations, and the giant mural of a tiger on the wall, it’s a vibe. Plus, they have some good actual...food to get here too, sometimes coffee shops really only have like small bakery items, but these guys have açaí bowls and avocado toast and other things, and I always appreciate that. So naturally, I got an açaí bowl and I really enjoyed it! But my favorite was trying their signature drink- The “Blind THAIger”- so punny. As the name may hint, it is a thai coffee with condensed milk as the sweetener, and the best surprise is that the coffee is actually colored orange, just like a tiger! So fun, and it tasted absolutely divine! It wasn’t too sweet but just right, I can’t even describe except that you need to try it for yourself and have your taste buds blessed. This is just such a fun shop and I’m glad there are some other locations in the Tampa Bay area as well, for I will certainly be visiting many more times.More

The coffee and breakfast we had was quite good. I would suggest that the staff be coached up a bit more to be interested that you actually HAVE customers -- no one was rude -- just not really interested. Maybe they don't rely on tourists.

We visited The Blind Tiger Cafe Ybor City location for the second time. Both visits were great. Staff is generally friendly and helpful. Atmosphere is eclectic. We had the Cafe Con Leche iced & found it to be refreshing. Probably not the best Cuban coffee...ever, but definitely would order it again. The Blind Tiger Acai bowl was delicious and definitely a large portion. It was a bit soupy - slightly different than I'm used to but nevertheless tasty. The breakfast sandwich is to die for. So delicious. The Cuban bread is on point. My only hope is that possibly there might be a way to have a gluten free bread option - is there such a thing as GF Cuban bread?! :) Definitely a place that we look forward to returning to when we go to the Tampa area. The wandering roosters in the area are also very entertaining!More

Café con leche is ok but not really up to standards of other Cuban cafes in town. Food is overpriced for what you get. Service indifferent at best. Owner works hard for the community.

This was a really cute cafe that serves some healthier choices. I had the breakfast sandwhich. I thought it was pretty good but nothing magical. It was a good size. I also had a glass of ice tea. I thought the normal tea was good...but overpriced as tea is very inexpensive to make and it cost nearly as much as all of the specialty drinks. Overall I think it is a pretty good place to hangout, do work, but I wouldn't go back to just eat again.More

Having being in Florida for a week we were getting desperate for a good flat white coffee ! We found exactly what we were looking for here. Great coffee made by a barista who knows how to create a perfect flat white. Soy and almond...milk alternatives availableMore

What a great find! The cold brew and bagels were very good. Staff were friendly and efficient. A fun setting to hang out in.

We ordered some coffee and bagels as we had to check out from our apartment and this place was closest by. Coffee was ok but bagels didn’t taste that much Worst for us was the not working woman toilet as it was in the morning...and I can’t imagine that they had many guests so early so toilet looked like they didMore

This is one of the best places that you can get a decent cup of coffee in Tampa. The only issue is parking, that can be a hassle !
