Jet City wakes up Seminole Heights

TAMPA — Coffee entrepreneur Jessica Glover expanded into Seminole Heights this month, opening Jet City Espresso on N Florida Avenue, north of Hillsborough Avenue. Her Hyde Park coffee bar on Edison Avenue remains open daily.

Neighbors quickly swarmed to the cozy bungalow for coffee, espresso, chai latte and her signature Cafe Borgia, a honey- and orange-infused latte. They also liked the free Wi-Fi and ample parking.

Glover's baked goods include many paleo and gluten-free choices.

"Everything as healthy and organic as possible," Glover said.

Here's an example: Jet City Salad, $12, mixes greens and kale, slow-cooked apricot chicken, black rice, cauliflower mash, toasted pumpkin seeds and thick shavings of asiago. Two sandwich selections are smoked Gouda portobello and smoked whitefish on a croissant with all fixings, both $9. For dessert, try gluten-free chocolate pumpkin cake or paleo lava chocolate cake.

There's outdoor seating on the front porch and coming soon, a side deck. A beer and wine license application is in the works.

Jet City Seminole Heights, 5803 N Florida Ave., is open 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekends. Visit or call (813) 541-5048.
