The second location of Sweet Buns bakery is now open at 2788 E. Fowler Ave near the Tampa campus of the University of South Florida. The OG location is stationed near Gainesville where it hooks University of Florida students up with fresh baked goods, cakes and free Wi-Fi. Sweet Buns is owned and managed by the same company as 2019 Best of the Bay winner Yummy House.
When it comes to baked goods, Sweet Buns creates an insane line of buns including sweet ones and others with ham, tuna, and sliced sausage inside. The Asian bakery creates elaborate cakes, including anything from a chocolate drizzle cake to cheesecakes completely covered in fruit; even wedding cakes are available for order.
According to the website, Sweet Buns offers "a relaxing environment to study or just hang and enjoy some sweets."
Looks like the two Felicitous coffee house locations have some competition as a hideout for USF students.
Hours for Sweet Buns' Tampa location are 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and 8 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Sunday.
