Buddy Brew Coffee to open new café in Armature Works

TAMPA, Florida — Buddy Brew Coffee will open a new café at Armature Works, 1910 N. Ola Ave., in the Heights Public Market. This comes on the heels of its successful Bay to Bay opening in December 2020. This is the company’s eighth location.

“Armature Works is a special place that has so much architectural and cultural history, and it was a perfect fit for Buddy Brew’s latest expansion,” said Dave Ward, co-founder, Buddy Brew Coffee. 

“We love being a part of the revitalization of the Heights District and are looking forward to being a part of a community of makers and creatives who love Tampa as much as we do,” said Susan Ward, co-founder, Buddy Brew Coffee. “We are passionate about building spaces where people can connect, enjoy high-quality specialty coffee and celebrate our beautiful city.” 

Armature Works is a 73,000 square-foot mixed-use commercial space that is home to multiple dining, retail and event spaces, including the Heights Public Market. Its waterfront location and industrial architectural style draw locals and tourists alike. In addition to serving its trademark coffees, espresso and cold brew, the café will offer a full breakfast and lunch menu, including Buddy Brew’s signature avocado toast with poached eggs.

The Wards opened their flagship café and roastery on West Kennedy Boulevard in 2010. They have since opened locations across the Tampa Bay area, including on Bay to Bay and in Hyde Park Village, Oxford Exchange, Tampa International Airport and downtown Sarasota. 

Buddy Brew’s company mission, “Brew Good; Do Good,” is reflected in its commitment to ethical and sustainable sourcing of high-quality specialty coffee, as well as its passion for giving back to the local community. 

Buddy Brew’s whole bean coffees are available for purchase in cafés and grocery stores across the state, including Whole Foods and Publix.
