Tampa >La Segunda Central Bakery
Guava Turnover is perfecto. You must try this bakery. Bring lots of money, expensive but they deserve every penny.
Bobby flay was wrong.
I am Cuban American that lives in CT. I wanted to get a recipe for Cuban bread. I am loyal person who watches Bobby Fray and find him to be one of the best tv food network host on tv. I will have to disagree in his recommendation of the La Sugunda Cuban Bakery.
Not for nothing the service was less than courteous or friendly, for them to be the oldest Cuban bakery they should be more respectful of their customers. I thought as a Cuban that they would be warm and friendly as most of the Cubans are, but no such luck.
The bread is 3' long and the taste is weak in taste and seems like it's old.
The prices for the pastries were on the very high end for such a location, as one person who stated in their comment it was like you were in third world city. The correct thing is for them to be more considerate of the risk one takes to come to their establishment.
Im left pissed off that I waisted my time in visiting a so called Cuban landmark, for a Cuban like me my expectation was very high but left very disappointed.
They not only have great customer service, they have the best cuban bread in tampa.
This Bakery is great. The people there are fantastic and they help you out with what to chose. From they worm tasty cuban bread or the fresh pastry's. I have been going to the bakery sence i was about 3. And they only get better as the years go by. The lady Sheila that works there has been there for about 34 years and she loves the bakery with all her heart! She is happy to go to work every day just so she can make her customers happy!
I give the Bakery 5 stars they Deserve it!
Don't listen to someone that can't spell from Miami. This person can't even spell bakery. States that the people can't speak Spanish there and are on a work release program. Ok we all know that the best cuban bread is made in Tampa and we have the best sandwiches. So cubanito go back to Miami or climb aboard your Banana boat and be ordered around by Castro.
Stay Away. OK I am Cuban, this place is not. Its gheetto and I just got back from there...no one spoke Spanish in the place, thats a bad sign. I dont care about a places history, I care about its product. I ordered Guava Pastelitos, they were awful. The lady was rude and the customers in the place were on a work release program...or so it seemed. I gues my search for decent Cuban Bakerise in Tampa continue.
The bakery churns out 6,000 loaves daily, but you only need one to appreciate these authentic Cuban delights..
The third-generation owners of La Segunda have reason to be proud of the thin, flaky crust and the soft, pillowy interior of their archetypal Cuban bread, even more so when piled high with tangy pork and zesty Genoa salami (a strictly Tampa twist). They can also be proud of the 125 different pastries made on the premises, from Cuban sugar cookies to flaky turnovers that cradle fragrant guava filling.
