Flan Factory is a flan-centric restaurant and cafe located at 1718 N Nebraska Avenue in Tampa. The concept has wowed diners with its sensational flan, and delectable Cuban Monte Cristo sandwich. A personal favorite: passionfruit and guava flan.

We’re big fans of flan — and now there’s a spot completely dedicated to the always mesmerizing dessert in Ybor City. Fittingly named the Flan Factory, this concept is billed as a new modern Cuban sandwich shop located in Ybor City, Tampa.


The homegrown brand is known for its variety of delicious artisanal flans, but the new restaurant can boast a menu of flavorful latin food favorites.

“As a first generation Tampeño born and raised in West Tampa, it was always important to my abuela that we held on to our Cuban heritage and traditions,” writes Flan Factory owner Joseph Palau. “When my abuela passed away in 2014. I would often find myself reminiscing about the countless family dinners she had hosted, and the evolution of her flan. In 2016, I decided to honor my abuelas memory and keep her legacy alive by introducing the world to Flan Factory.”

The line of flan flavors includes an exquisite espresso Thai tea, salted caramel, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, açaí, Fruity Pebbles, and tiramisu.


This is in addition to classic flavors like Cafe Con Leche and guava.

Sink your teeth into a massive classic Cuban sandwich, or go for something even more savory like the 1985, brioche bread is deep fried in cinnamon batter and filled with guava sauce, cream cheese, with oven roasted turkey breast in the center.

Celebrate and support a local business at The Flan Factory, 1718 N Nebraska Avenue.
