A new spot to satisfy your sweet tooth will soon open its doors in South Tampa.
After many months of anticipation, dessert and coffee shop The Salty Donut celebrates its grand opening on Friday, Sept. 15 at 1519 W Swann Ave., adjacent to other popular Hyde Park Village concepts like On Swann, Goody Goody and Bartaco.
Its first 50 customers on Friday and Saturday will receive a tote bag filled with Salty swag.
The Salty Donut will also host a pre-opening lottery for customers that would like to skip the grand opening day crowds—interested folks can register for its sneak peek by filling out this form. The Miami-based doughnut shop will give 50 lucky people a box of free treats alongside their pre-opening tour.
While Tampa’s upcoming location will boast a menu similar to other shops throughout Florida and Georgia, The Salty Donut will specifically cater to Tampeños by offering unique flavors like guava and cheese and strawberry tres leche.
Seasonal bakes currently on The Salty Donut’s menu include a mango and passion fruit brioche topped with fruity buttercream and white chocolate crumble, gluten-free chocolate chip and sea salt doughnuts and a dinosaur-themed “dirt pie” dessert for the kiddos.
And if you prefer to drink your sugar instead of eating it, you can always indulge in a cinnamon cereal milk latte or apple pie chai tea instead.
The dessert shop’s second Tampa location will soon open out of a refurbished Seminole Heights bungalow and is slated to debut later this year.
Co-owners Amanda Pizarro and Andy Rodriguez launched their Miami-based doughnut brand out of a vintage camper in 2014. Over the last 9 years, The Salty Donut has expanded outside of the The Sunshine State into Georgia, Texas and North Carolina.

After next weekend’s grand opening, Hyde Park Village’s The Salty Donut will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 7 a.m.-10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, which makes it a post-dinner dessert hotspot in South Tampa.
