I was just in St. Pete for work last week and I was craving a nice cold brew coffee. This place delivered! Just a few blocks from the water and a few blocks from the hotel I was staying at. Good, fast service and delicious coffee with multiple non-dairy milk options!

I have been to this place often. I am not a coffee person but my wife is and she says this is one of two favorite coffee houses in St Pete. I usually go for hot chocolate which is good. They serve a variety of pastries to go with your beverage and also sandwiches and pretty good quiches. Everything is... More

Kahwa is an enterprising company based in St. Petersburg that roasts their own beans. They now have several locations in Tampa Bay, but their first cafe was just north of downtown St. Pete. I don't know if they still do it, but they used to sell to Daniel Boulud in New York. It's that good. Kahwa means coffee in Arabic.... More

Cute little corner coffee shop in downtown St Pete. Cheaper than Starbucks and quieter. Very nice girls working behind the counter.

We stopped here because it looked easy to get to from the interstate. The coffee was good, they had free wi-if, and a cozy atmosphere.

By far and away the best espresso we had when we were in downtown St Petes for a few days. This is centrally located and there is a spacious indoor cafe with a handful of tables on the shady sidewalk. It was a good option for a light breakfast.

The coffee scene in St Pete is improving, with lots of "hipsters" shops, but Kahwa is still the one with the best coffee in this area. Don't get attached to fancy manual brewing methods baristas can't actually do it right, just come here to get the best plain coffee from this area.

I'm not a fan of bitter coffee which Kahwa is - however, they have great choices of breakfast fare and sweets if that is your favorite - they have great outdoor seating as well as indoor seating
