Sandwich and salad spot Supernatural Food and Wine is open and ready for business at the old Nojak’s location at 305 E Polk St. in downtown Tampa.

The menu revolves mainly around fresh sandwiches (chicken salad, BLT, turkey and ranch) and salads (Thai crunch, Italian, chopped). Keeping with the vegan vibe the Nojak’s built, there are vegan options like the roasted chickpea salad sandwich and the Hubmarine vegan cold cut sub named after its neighbor The Hub.

There are also a ton of sides (german potato salad, Thai-style slaw, cucumber salad) which come vegan—there are also options to add bacon, cheese or whatever carnivore addition works best. 

Supernatural offers office packs for those of you that are back working in-person, the packs feed up to eight people and can be combined to fit any kind of diet. Get the 96-oz. box of coffee available to-go—your coworkers will love you.

And of course, there is wine, and beer, available, too.

Though Supernatural is a different restaurant than Nojaks, with no burgers in sight, the same people are involved—sort of. “We are helping with the new shop,” co-owner Wesley Roderick told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay. So technically the same owners, but it's a different team and unrelated to Nojaks. 

Hours for Supernatural Food and Wine in downtown Tampa are Monday 10:30 a.m-2:30 p.m. and Turesday-Friday 7:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m with a break before it reopens from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. for the afternoon crowd. Supernatural is closed on the weekends, but you can get its donuts Saturday mornings at Meacham Urban Farms—nearby at 1108 E Scott St. in the old Scrub neighborhood—for donation only.

“Bottom line is if you want a donut on a Saturday morning you should have one. Whether you have 5¢ or $5 or just a smile and an IOU, It’s too sweet of a chance for us as a community to enjoy ourselves and there’s no need to exclude anyone,” an Instagram post said.
