Revived Tradition

Mortar & Pestle revives the old-time tradition of a neighborhood pharmacy in Seminole Heights, for those who crave a relaxed pace, personal touch, and handcrafted flavor.

Inspired by America’s historic mom-and-pop drugstores, where pharmacists once filled prescriptions and mixed ice cream sodas with equal skill, Mortar & Pestle delivers attentive service for everything from soothing an ache to soothing a sweet tooth.

Fill your everyday prescription needs at our modern, independent pharmacy while you relax in our café next door, savoring locally made sodas and espresso drinks, Florida craft beers, wines, desserts, and small plates. Like the pharmacy soda shops of the early 1900s, Mortar & Pestle is a community gathering place where stories are traded over fizzy concoctions and memories are made from simple moments. Visit us today and discover a new tradition.

Food & Bev Lab

Experimenting with taste and presentation, the food truck elevates old-fashioned favorites to a new standard, with a menu drawing influence from foods of the American South, without becoming cuisine-specific. At price points between $7 and $12, the food truck offers a budget-friendly way to get acquainted with the flavors of Mortar & Pestle’s upcoming Seminole Heights café.
