Tampa’s Gulf Coast Sourdough Sandwich Shop announced that it is moving 1.5 miles northwest to 6703 N Florida Ave. At its new home, the Best of the Bay-winning Seminole Heights bakery and sandwich shop will share a plaza with Revolution Ice Cream and Mekenita Cantina.

The Seminole Heights bakery is open at its current location, 5214 N Nebraska Ave., until Saturday, Oct. 16 before moving to the new space.

Gulf Coast Founder and CEO Christina Cann told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay that the new location will be open starting Tuesday, Oct. 19. The new location—which also has limited seating inside and outside—will run the same hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m., Sunday 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and closed on Monday.

Gulf Coast opened its sandwich shop in 2018, after serving the Tampa Bay area artisan breads for four years through pop-ups and farmers markets. In addition to whole loaves, the shop sells sandwiches, “flybys” (a stuffed sandwich meets a calzone), and cinnamon rolls which are free with another purchase on Wednesday. Cann added that in 2020, Gulf Coast also purchased a Sulphur Springs warehouse, which is now a baking facility that's closed to the public.'
