The Portico Cafe is a coffee shop with a mission.


Excellent quality coffee. Intentional customer service. Impacting the community.



A portion of the staff are transitioning out of not-for-profits, paid a livable wage and offered healthcare.

1. Raise awareness
2. Mobilize tangible efforts to address this systemic issue: Homeless Jesus – Homeless Memorial – Housing initiatives with The Portico and Love, Inc.

Live music. Open mic nights.  Artistic works.  Special events.

The Cafe helps to foster conversation, connection and community change in downtown Tampa.

Each purchase supports the livelihood of people transitioning out of difficult situations and our homeless initiatives.
