Southern Grounds coming...have we hit Peak coffee yet!?!
« on: July 17, 2017, 09:54:39 AM »
We love our weekend getaways at One Ocean and hit Southern Grounds hard while we are there. The San Marco coffee options are getting out of control......and I think I like it!

Maybe people will finally wake up and smell the (better) coffee and stop spending a not immaterial portion of their income on Starbucks?

Speaking of new coffee shops, has anyone tried Coniferous downtown on Monroe St across from the library?

Awesome! I mean that very genuinely, but I guess that also means there's little hope for the coffee shop announced at the Laundry Station on San Marco Blvd almost a year ago. We've got Starbucks, Bold Bean, Good Dough Donuts, Panera and now this place all concentrated on the central/Eastern side of San Marco.

I don't believe it will have a major impact. The San Marco Boulevard site is right down the street from all the major capital improvements and infill by Baptist Health.  Short of a bust in the economy, there should be enough people around to consume the extra caffeine.
