Urban Grind to the Florida Theatre
Stop by Urban Grind for a tasty treat- like their dirty chai latte and a cinnamon roll! Once your snack cravings are met, head over to the Florida Theatre and enjoy one their upcoming shows, or a Sunday summer movie classic (La Bamba, Untold Stories, and Alice in Wonderland to name a few)!
Chamblins Uptown & Cafe to the Museum of Science and History (MOSH)
Chamblins Uptown & Cafe has the seasonal flavors we love- like the spring-summer treat, their matcha rose latte! After strolling through their rows of books (and finding a few for your R&R), head over to the MOSH for fascinating exhibits like the “Bold City Bicentennial: Progress & Perseverance through 200 Years of Jacksonville History,” and Dinosaur Explorer!
Honey’z Plates in the Juice Bar Cafe to Wolf and Cub
Feening for some fresh juice? Honey’z Plates in the Juice Bar Cafe is the stop to make for a refreshing and healthy drink, snack, or fruit platter for a hot summer day. Pack in your favorite fruits and veggies and enjoy your beverage in James Weldon Johnson Park for some weekend live music and people watching! Finally, hop over to one-of-a-kind concept shop, Wolf and Cub, where you’ll find local art, self-care items, kitchen ingredients, vintage pieces and so much more!
Happy Grilled Cheese to Intuition Ale Works
Happy Grilled Cheese is the ultimate foodie lunch destination and has delicious menu of grilled cheeses, salads and sides to choose from- some favorites include the Fancy Shmancy, Cuban, and of course, the Duuuval Hot Chicken Melt!
