Simple Tampa pleasures are the best, like our Ybor City Breakfast. A classic Ybor City tradition, we prepare ours at Goody Goody with pressed, buttered Cuban bread from La Segunda Central Bakery in Ybor and café con leche fresh-roasted from Tampa’s own Naviera Coffee Mills (established in 1921).
Yes, when your ingredients are from Tampa, breakfast can be that simple! Even with a menu full of classic breakfast options like locally sourced eggs with bacon, 12-inch pancakes and fresh vegetable omelets, Tampa locals love to order that delicious bread, butter and coffee combination at Goody Goody.
Cuban Bread at Goody Goody Burgers
Our Cuban bread comes from La Segunda Central Bakery in Ybor City, where the world’s best Cuban bread is made. In Tampa’s cigar factory days, this bakery sold its bread to the Columbia Restaurant, now Florida’s oldest restaurant, where it was used to make the first Cuban sandwiches with ingredients representing the mixture of cultures in Ybor City. Tampa’s Cuban bread is yeast-risen, long, white and soft on the inside, with a light, crispy crust.
Café con Leche at Goody Goody Burgers
The coffee at Goody Goody is fresh-roasted from Tampa’s own Naviera Coffee Mills. In 1921, Carlos Menendez, a Spanish immigrant, founded Naviera Coffee Mills, named for the shipping lines that brought him to America. He worked in an Ybor City cigar factory during the day and roasted coffee each night. In the morning, he rode a bicycle to deliver his fresh roasted blends door-to-door. Like the Columbia Restaurant Group, Naviera Coffee Mills, Inc. is still family owned and operated, four generations since its founding.
Of course, not just coffee, but fresh café con leche is an essential part of the Ybor City Breakfast at Goody Goody. We source our fresh milk from Sunny Florida Dairy in Tampa, which was established in 1911 and has served the Columbia Restaurant Group since 1920. The milk in a classic café con leche makes it heavier and more filling than other coffee drinks, creating the perfect match for light and flaky Cuban toast.
