Pin On Cafe, an Asian Fusion concept, will replace Chang Mai in the EDGE District

Pin On Cafe is moving into the EDGE District as soon as early December — it’s a concept from the owners of Pin Wok & Bowl on the 400 Block of Central Avenue in St. Pete. Chang Mai announced its exit form the EDGE after 10+ years of operation in late October. Pin On Cafe is in the process of revamping the space.

Fans of Pin Wok & Bowl can expect more of the same at the new Pin On Cafe.

The menu will feature “Thai and Japanese comfort food, smoothies, and sandwiches,” the owners said in an Instagram message to I Love the ‘Burg. Diners will also delight in “Thai and Japanese dessert.” Vegetarian options will also feature at the restaurant.

An official opening timeline is still TBA, but if all goes according to plan the restaurant could open in early December.

The EDGE District is certainly active at the moment. The EDGE Animal Hospital is ready to serve the community.

Miracle at Mezzo, a wild Christmas office party of sorts, is also nearly ready to return to the area, dinosaur mugs and all. It launches on Black Friday and continues through New Year’s Eve.

Pin On Cafe joins Pinoy St. Pete as an exciting addition to lively block.
