Seminole Heights may be known as the MICHELIN section of Tampa. Both Rooster & The Till and Ichicoro Ramen received Bib Gourmand Awards just last week. Now, La Casa Lyn is serving up sweet cinnamon buns, gorgeous cupcakes, crave worthy breads, and so much more at 5214 N Nebraska Avenue.

The neighborhood itself is already replete with some of the best eats in the entire city of Tampa. Flocale, a pizza and wing concept from the mind behind King of the Coop and Westshore Pizza, just opened in the neighborhood. Wicked Oak BBQ, just down the block from Ichicoro, remains the BBQ standard bearer in Tampa. If you haven’t had the kimchi pancakes or experienced karaoke at Gangchu in Seminole Heights, we hope you change that ASAP. Don’t forget, Seminole Heights is also home to a recurring farmers market.

Back to La Casa Lyn. This family owned shop opened earlier in 2022 and is crafting mini bun mountains and stunning custom cakes on the regular. Their story starts with their mother’s traditional Dominican cake recipe, according to the owners. They write, “She taught us the recipe at an early age, creating countless memories spent in the kitchen together. The time spent bonding in the kitchen cultivated a love for making desserts and trying new recipes out for our family gatherings.”
