As the 2018 Stanley Cup continues and the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team continues to perform well, team spirit is spreading throughout Tampa Bay. There is so much hype and anticipation surrounding the Lightning’s performance that even local businesses are getting in on the excitement.

Certain local cafes are showing their spirit in a different and innovative way—through their food. Beverages, snacks, and treats are all being sold adorned with the team’s signature colors or lightning bolt.

Visit Buddy Brew Coffee, Mini Doughnut Factory, Astro-Ice-Cream, and Blind Tiger Cafe to join in on the fun and support the team. (Click on the images for directions and more information.)
