Best Cuban Sandwiches in Tampa

I recently asked my followers on Instagram where they thought Tampa’s best cuban sandwich was and received an overwhelming amount of responses! The spots listed below all had multiple submissions and look delicious. If I missed your favorite cuban sandwich in Tampa let me know, I’ll definitely be expanding the list in the future :) Also, if anyone has been to ALL of these, I’d love to hear your opinions on each!

West Tampa Sandwich Shop

This answer was definitely the most submitted - advice from a large amount of my followers “get the honey cuban - best cuban in Tampa hands down.”

Interbay Meat Market & Groceries

This Tampa sandwich shop over by MacDill was submitted by a few people! Definitely looks like a quality cuban to me.

Brocato’s Sandwich Shop

Established in 1948, Brocato’s has been a stable in Tampa for over half a decade. Known for their cuban sandwiches and deviled crab, it was no surprise to see multiple people submit them for best cuban in Tampa!

Alessi Bakery

Another Tampa foodie institution, Alessi Bakery had to be included on this list! In addition to amazing cubans & other sandwiches, they also have DELICIOUS baked goods.


A new comer to the Tampa food scene, Hemingway’s opened in Armature Works in early 2018. However, Chef/Owner Felicia LaCalle is no newbie to cuban cuisine and absolutely kills it at this spot. Not only can you find a traditional cuban sandwich here, but you can also grab a breakfast cuban!


This spot has locations in both Tampa and St. Pete! Fans of Bodega have always been passionate about their cubans, and for good reason - they are delicious. Love that you can get them on both sides of the Bay now!

La Segunda Bakery

Another long standing Tampa institution, you can find La Segunda with locations in Ybor and on West Kennedy. They produce 18,000 loaves of Cuban bread daily…so safe to say they know what they are doing.
