One of Tampa’s oldest bakeries is expanding its reach across the bay area.
La Segunda Bakery and Cafe announced Publix is now carrying its signature Cuban bread, according to a Facebook post Wednesday.
The iconic Ybor City bakery was founded more than a century ago and is a staple of Tampa’s culinary history. La Segunda’s Cuban bread is currently available for $2.99 at six Publix stores in Tampa: the one in Hillsboro Plaza, Westchase shopping mall, Carrollwood Square, Channel Club, Westgate Plaza and at 8701 Hillsborough Ave.
While La Segunda’s Cuban bread is limited to a few stores, the announcement said the bakery plans to provide to more Publix locations in the future.
La Segunda has two locations — the original in Ybor City and another in South Tampa — with plans to open a third shop across the bay in St. Petersburg this fall.
