St. Petersburg’s Cider Press Cafe Is Moving to Bigger Space
The Florida favorite cafe is moving to a bigger, better location!
The all-vegan Cider Press Cafe has called Downtown St. Petersburg home for the past six years but has plans to pick up shop and open a new location in Historic Kenwood. While they will be missed in Downtown St. Petersburg, the new location will afford them many new opportunities, including an expanded menu, full liquor license, and late-night hours.
Vegan Pub Food in St. Petersburg
Cider Press Cafe is known for its vegan pub food—from chickn wings and burgers to loaded fries and cheezesteaks, this spot is the go-to for mouthwatering munchies and Insta-worthy entrees. With a bigger kitchen at the new location on the horizon, the owners hope to expand the menu and offer more upscale items (think gastropub offerings and craft cocktails). But don’t worry, you’ll still be able to order all of their classic menu items like cauliflower wings, BYO burgers, and housemade cheesecakes.
Aside from the bigger kitchen, the new space in Historic Kenwood will have the capacity to seat an impressive 150 guests in the 2,300 square foot building and at the large patio bar. Loyal guests accustomed to the struggle of trying to find downtown parking will also be thrilled with the private parking lot and plethora of public parking spaces at the new location.
St. Petersburg’s Vegan Nightlife Scene
The owners hope that the new spot will become more of a staple in the vegan nightlife scene as they begin the process of acquiring a full liquor license and have plans to stay open late. With all of these new changes, Cider Press will be rebranding as Cider Press Vegan Gastropub and Patio Bar.
The St. Petersburg location will stay open through the end of the year, and the Historic Kenwood location is set to open before the end of the year as well. Give them a follow at @ciderpresscafe for updates on the grand opening.
