King State's first brick-and-mortar is opening Tuesday, June 25, at 520 E. Floribraska Ave. bright and early at 8 a.m.
Last Friday, King State owners hosted a Friends and Family event to showcase the new digs and they are now ready to share it with the community. In a previous article, CL connected with co-owner, Nate Young who expressed that they were hoping to launch the concept last week after passing inspections, but decided to postpone the opening to the following week to make sure all loose ends were tied up prior to debuting.
Hours for the concept this week will be 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 8 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday.
Owners and former bandmates Tim McTague and Nate Young wanted to expand their cult coffee brand into a fast-casual joint offering up craft brews and bites.
Young's sister, Carolyn, will head up the food program. Her mission is to serve up healthier spins on southern recipes. So come with an appetite.
The pair will be pouring 16 taps, 10 of which are their own, with the help of friend and head brewer Aric Parker. A selection of wines will also be sold by the glass.
The cafe is adding some serious finesse to their service — whenever your drink order is ready an alarm goes off and the pendulum lights over the King State bar begin swinging back and forth. Your Instagram feed is about to get much cooler.
Their signature coffee blends are also available and will keep Tampa Heights buzzing throughout the day and well into the evening.
