Buddy Brew Coffee getting ready to open at the newly renovated #ParkTower in Tampa’s Downtown

After numerous requests and a little finesse, Buddy Brew Coffee founders Dave and Susan Ward are gearing up to open their latest craft coffee shop in downtown Tampa. The husband-and-wife duo’s sixth location (and sleekest one yet) officially starts keeping the neighborhood caffeinated Monday, Feb. 11.
 
The best part just might be the full-length glass doors that serve as the lobby and street entrances. They make the shop easy to find, which was difficult prior to Park Tower’s multimillion-dollar revamp.
 
“Years ago, people wouldn’t have known about this building if it weren’t for Lucky Dill in the back corner,” Dave said. “Now the space is much more inviting.”
 
The owner of the building, Larry Feldman, wanted to incorporate the community, as Dave puts it, and he knew Buddy Brew could fit the bill.
