Is there a better bakery in Tampa for Cuban bread? Absolutely not. Most fine Tampa Bay restaurants use La Segunda for their Cuban bread…a Cuban is not a Cuban unless made with La Segunda which has been around since 1905.
There is not much better in life than sitting down at the famed Columbia Restaurant with a hot bowl of Spanish Bean Soup served with a hunk of “warm & crusty” La SegundaCuban Bread wrapped in white tissue-like paper and a crock of soft whipped butter. It is simply the best.
For those of you who are fortunate to be in an UBER-EATS delivery area that handles La Segunda – you can order all your bread (and other goodies) delivered right to your door. That’s what I do most half the time these days.
Today however, I had a hankering for the smells and tastes of this old-world bakery that only a visit would accomplish. Cuban bread was what I was after – just Cuban bread. Well, I walked out with a Cuban sandwich, 2 chocolate bon-bons, 1 apple turnover, 1 guava pastry, and almost forgot my loaf of Cuban bread. Impossible not to be tempted. Impossible. Go find out for yourself.
