    Since its opening in December 2012, Pinecrest Bakery has become a beloved staple in the South Florida community. Founded by the Valdes and Rodriguez families, who hail from Miami’s historical Little Havana, our bakery is driven by a deep-rooted commitment to sharing the rich traditions of Cuban baked delicacies (i.e Pastelitos) and cafes.

With a focus on quality ingredients, consistency and an inviting upscale atmosphere, we strive to create a memorable experience that honors the cherished traditions and brings families together.
