Dozens of restaurants throughout Tampa Bay offer great brunches, but wine bar and restaurant Cru Cellars offers an exclusive experience this weekend.

Now and Then—a Tampa-based multi-roaster coffee pop-up—heads to Cru Cellars this weekend to offer a variety of specialty espresso and teas.

Cru Cellars’ Palma Ceia location hosts this weekend’s pop-up, which runs from noon-4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10. The popular wine bar and restaurant is located at 2506 S MacDill Ave. in South Tampa.

Now and Then's owners, Davy Ball and Demi Chacon, will be slinging specialty coffee and espresso from HEX Roasters, as well as a variety of teas. One of Now and Then's seasonal drinks, "Salt of the Earth," is 10 ounces of cold-steeped wild white tea, sage-infused agave, juniper berry cold foam and sea salt.

Cru Cellars is hosting this event to commemorate the launch of its new brunch options, which include avocado toast, biscuits and gravy, steak and eggs and a bacon, egg and cheese croissant. In addition to its new-and-improved brunch menu, the Tampa wine bar is also launching its “buckets of bubbles,” a full mimosa spread for the whole table.

Alongside wine, coffee and brunch, there will also be  live music provided by one half of the Tampa-based electronic duo Alien House, DJ Justin Depth.
