Family-friendly Brewburgers opens on West Shore Blvd.; Victory Coffee wakes up Channel District

TAMPA — Brewskis? Check. About 12 beers on tap.

Burgers? Check — a half-dozen ground beef entrees.

Bar? Not really.

"We want to be known as a family-friendly restaurant," said Sean Cavanaugh, partners with Terence Reilly and Dan Soronen in Brewburgers, which opened April 20 on West Shore Boulevard at Euclid Avenue.

"We close at midnight to reinforce that," Cavanaugh said.

The house speciality is a Guinness stout-infused burger, topped with roasted red peppers, portobello mushrooms and pepper jack cheese on a toasted potato roll for $8.

"That's the top of the line,'' Cavanaugh said. "Other burgers start at $4, and vegetarians, like my wife, will find a veggie burger and several salads."

Popular side dishes are sweet potato puffs, curly fries, onions rings and fried green tomatoes.

A children's menu includes little sliders, mac and cheese and chicken tenders.

On Tuesdays, beginning at 6 p.m., all burgers start at $2 and diners add toppings, starting at 75 cents.

Fair warning, Cavanaugh adds: "There's usually a 30-minute wait to get in those nights."

Brewburgers, 3681 S West Shore Blvd. is open from 11 a.m. to midnight daily. Visit the "Brewburgers Tampa" Facebook page or call (813) 839-7551.

At Victory Coffee & Tea, your drink awaits

What could be more convenient than having your own personal coffee shop?

General contractor Jason Murray designed and built Victory Coffee & Tea Bar on the first floor of the Model T condominium. He and his wife Taylor live on the fourth floor.

"We start every day right here,'' Murray said.

Regulars have been coming for espresso, cafe con leche, cappuccino, and Mighty Leaf teas since the shop opened earlier this year. Breakfast pastries, salads and sandwiches are offered throughout the day. One popular drink is the Dirty Chai, a blend of chai latte and espresso.

"I felt the need for a local coffee hangout,'' Murray said. "The baristas know what all the neighbors drink and start making it as they walk in the door."

Victory Coffee & Tea Bar, 101 N 12th St. is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Call (813) 223-9539.
