This was a fantastic, authentic Cuban bakery, with a sweet, bilingual staff. The Café con Leche (Cuban coffee with milk) was reminiscent of my grandmother's, their pastries were perfect, and the tostada (Cuban toast) felt like home. I highly recommend La Caridad Bakery for a quick, delicious, homemade treat.

This place has the best Tres Leches cake In the Tampa Bay Area. I've tried quit a few and NO ONE can beat theirs. Guava and cheese pastry as well as their grave bread is fantastic. Their empanadas see good too. This is now my bakery of choice for quality Latin pastries.

Wow. If you are from the Caribbean this is a must. It reminded me of Puerto Rico's bakeries. Awesome! Very fresh and clean. Quesitos, pastelillos de guayaba, pan Boricua, pastelito de carne and the list goes on... I will definitely return to that bakery.

I went here for the first time yesterday. We bought bakery items (guava and cream cheese pastelitos), croquetas, and then lunch from the small cafeteria-like setup. The pastelitos were as usual from most decent bakeries: good. The ham croquetas were especially good (and I have eaten plenty in my life!). For lunch, we got lechón asado and congri which were...

I go here almost daily for "colada" (expresso with sugar). The desserts are to die for and the prices are so low.
