Our project has been over a year in the making, and we are excited to announce that A Fresh Connection Café and Bakery will be opening its doors on Friday, July 6th, at 7am, with a modified, soft launch menu. Our Café hours will be 7am-2pm Monday – Friday, and 8am-2pm Saturday and Sunday. Our menu includes Fresh Brewed Kahwa Coffee, Hot Teas, Kahwa Cold Brew on Tap, Iced Teas, Kombucha as well as assorted cold beverages. Our bakers will be providing Fresh Baked croissants, muffins, cupcakes, mini pies and cakes. Our grab and go deli features breakfast sandwiches and quiches, and for lunch, gourmet sandwiches, wraps, loaded potato salad, kale salad and much more. We will be adding to our soft launch menu over the next few weeks and will be announcing our Grand Opening Date very soon.
In addition to our Café and Bakery, A Fresh Connection is also a full service catering company, serving the entire Tampa Bay Area. I opened my catering company five years ago, and it has grown with leaps and bounds. Our need for our own commercial kitchen led us to also open Florida Chefs Workshop, our shared use commercial kitchen. Florida Chefs Workshop will not only serve as our home kitchen, but also serve as an incubator kitchen for other caterers, bakers, and product makers. In the upcoming weeks, you can look for baked goods and other products, produced by Florida Chefs Workshop, for sale in our co-op market.
