Sunday Conversations – La Bahia Bakery

Brunch On The Go
A little bit of Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 on the Northwest side of Tampa.
Today we were on a mission and trying our best to adhere to the 🌎 of Social Distancing 🗨

We’re rollin and I’m talking about how hungry I am and I spot La Bahia Bakery as I have probably 30 times driving in the area. We thought about stopping several times but never did, simply because we were tired of being fooled. Yes, a lot times you will visit an establishment expecting to receive say, Puertorican Cuisine and you are sadly disappointed.
I’m happy to say, we felt like we were back on the Island. The food looked good and the sweets looked even better. The ladies at the counter were courteous so we were anxious to see if the eats would past the test.

I’m a bacalao connoisseur and my eyes could not look past it. I was offered a taste test and I can honestly say I would serve it in place of my own. It was fresh, full of flavour & thick like I like it!

The Pan Sabao (light, airy & sweet bread of Puerto Rico) was fresh! I could have just eaten it right out of the bag.
I was surprised when we saw the Canoas Con Carne Molida (sweet plantains opened like a canoe and filled with seasoned ground beef & topped with cheese).

Our Cafe Con Leche was good, you add your own sugar. They’re using op grade equipment!
I did pick up the last 4 cookies and cream cupcakes to take home to my daughters and the youngest one’s girlfriends. They were munching and talking about the layers of chocolate. I would take that as a sign of approval!

Take your family for breakfast, lunch and an early dinner. We agreed, that this fairly new establishment is now apart of neighborhood go-to resturant list. As long as they keep the quality of food and service like it is, they can only get better!

Tampa Bay welcome La Bahia Bakery!
