Sombra Coffee
9342 Oakhurt Road, Seminole




It is so exciting to have a new place to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee! 

Sombra Coffee, one of LocalShops1's newest members and part of the Buy Local Seminole program, is in the Publix shopping center on Oakhurst Road. We stopped in the other day and I was delighted to see a wide assortment of lunch items available on the menu.

I was debating whether to get a breakfast sandwich or lunch as I was very intrigued with the spinach florentine sandwich.
Fresh sauteed spinach, two egg whites, fresh portabella mushroom, and feta cheese crumbles, finished with a balsamic glaze ($5.95). This can be ordered on bread, English muffin, wrap or a bagel.  
There are five sandwiches available as well as a nova lox bagel ($6.95) or a hummus bagel ($6.45).

The selection of salads also sounded delicious. I pondered over the spinach strawberry salad. Fresh spinach, topped with strawberries, blueberries, feta cheese and sunflower seeds served with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing ($6.95).  Six other salads are on the menu that all sound wonderful.  

I turned over the menu and saw that a "pick two" combination is available for $7.95. Pick any half sandwich and your choice of soup or salad. Now I just had to decide which gourmet sandwich should I choose? Tampa Cuban, veggie sandwich, French dip, chicken salad? I decided to go with the Italian. Genoa salami, capicola, pepperoni, sweet ham, provolne cheese, fresh basil and ro
asted red bell peppers topped with lettuce and tomato, finished with blasamic finegar and extra virgin olive oil. The soup of the day was shrimp chowder. 
My friend's breakast looked delightful as well: The fruit and yogurt parfait is served with low-fat vanilla or Greek style yogurt and topped with fresh fruit and berries. ($4.95 and an extra $1 to add granola.)
