Local Coffee & Tea - the Sarasota-based minichain of coffee houses - has joined forces with Susan Huff of Integrity Organic. For a while, Local owner Mike Duranko had avowed to CL that he wasn't going to get in the food business at the St. Pete location. Well, he isn't. Susan is, using his kitchen. She'll be managing 330 1st Ave. S location and preparing the home-made, largely organic fare that she's become known for.
Both Duranko and Huff share eco-sensibilities, so her food combined with the best coffee in the Bay area should be a good match.
