Farewell to The Chelsea St. Pete - Beloved Coffee Shop Closing June 16

The Chelsea St. Pete, a beloved local coffee shop celebrated for its eclectic offerings and cozy, artsy ambiance, will close its doors on June 16. The announcement was made on Instagram over the weekend, leaving the community in a state of nostalgia and sadness. Located at 2462 5th Ave S, The Chelsea has been more than just a cafe; it has been a vibrant hub for community gatherings, local markets, and unique tea time experiences. Known for its fabulous English cottage vibe, the interior and courtyard offered a warm and inviting atmosphere, making it a popular spot for friends and family, especially during the winter and spring seasons.

In response to a community member asking for the closure date, The Chelsea team confirmed, "Sunday 6/16 will be it. 😢 Then we will be packing and selling furniture. A new business is set to open after us. I hope it’s good...Sunday 6/16 for coffee. Then we may be selling furniture, etc. for a few days."

As a bittersweet farewell, the cafe will be selling its art and furniture, giving fans an opportunity to take home a piece of their cherished local spot. The community is encouraged to visit The Chelsea before its final day to show appreciation for all it has contributed to St. Pete.
