HOME OF THE CUBAN SANDWICH

Dive deep into the rich history of the famous Cuban sandwich. We speak with Bryant Valdez, general manager of La Segunda Bakery, and Andrea Gonzmart, fifth-generation family owner of the Columbia Restaurant. The Cuban sandwich is an old-world family recipe, with German, Cuban, Spanish, and Italian roots. Apart from the taste that has captivated Ybor City for over a century, the Cuban sandwich represents community, family love, and generational bonds.
