They did it again! 

The same dynamic duo that brought us Tampa Bakes Empanadas is back to steal our hearts. This time they did it in the sweetest way.

Latinx Heritage Month officially begins September 15th. Yelp Tampa Bay started the celebration a little early this year with The Yelper’s Dozen, a special Elite Perk launched at the very beginning of the month.

Local business owners Chef Rosana Rivera and Chef (or rather, Baker) Ricardo invited The Elite Squad to experience their newest venture: Chef & The Baker. The power team behind Xilo Mexican, Kofe, and R2 Provisions have roots in classic French cooking. This bakery allows them to show off their passion and skill in traditional French pastry, while still honoring many Latin flavors they know and cherish.

The Yelper’s Dozen was specially curated for members of Tampa Bay’s Yelp Elite Squad. The opportunity to purchase these exclusive boxes for just $12.99 allowed the Elites to sample 13 assorted desserts by Chef & The Baker. There is much debate as to which baked good takes the cake. As for us? Well, you know we are #TeamCronut. 

But what team are you on? Head to The Hall on Franklin to taste these gourmet pastries and let us know by sharing your review on Yelp
