Bakeries are a great place to visit if you're looking for delicious pastries or baked goods. While you could easily swing by a grocery store for some delightful treats, there's something about freshly-baked, hand-crafted goods that are worth the purchase. Plus, you could be exposed to unique creations and exciting flavors you won't find anywhere else in the country. These establishments may also sell sandwiches, coffee, tea, confections, and other tasty offerings.

That's why Taste of Home updated its list of every state's best bakery. The roundup includes family-owned joints, cake shops, delis, specialty markets, historic businesses, and much more.

According to the website, Florida's top bakery is La Segunda! Here's why this historic spot was selected:

"One of the oldest bakeries on our list is La Segunda, currently in its 109th year. The bakery was founded by a Spanish soldier who discovered delicious local breads while stationed in Cuba. He brought the recipes with him to Ybor City and it is still family-run today. Must-tries include the Media Noche bread, tres leches cake and Cuban sandwiches."

La Segunda has three locations in Tampa and one in St. Petersburg.
