WHAT: Tampa Bay’s oldest bakery will be celebrating 106 years of business and four generations of ownership by the Alessi family. This year’s celebrations will honor Phil Alessi, the 3rd generation owner who passed away in May. Phil Alessi contributed greatly to the growth and sustainability of this iconic Tampa bakery. The weekend will be a tribute to the family and to the joy they have brought the Tampa community in the form of quality baked goods, deli items, and custom cakes.
Anniversary details include:
• A tribute to Phil Alessi

About Alessi Bakery:
Alessi Bakery is a true Tampa landmark dating back over a century to 1912, making it one of the few historic restaurant establishments in the area. Situated at 2909 W. Cypress Street Alessi, Bakery was first opened on Cherry Street by Nicolo Alessi. He arrived in Tampa from Italy over a hundred years ago, bringing his knowledge of baking and proud European heritage with him. It has been over 100 years since Alessi Bakery’s first inception in 1912. Nicolo’s insistence on quality, hard work, consistency and customer service inherited by 4 generations has been their perfect recipe for success. Their love, experience, and knowledge have made the Alessi family bakery the most successful and well-known bakery in Tampa offering the finest baked goods, wedding cakes and catering in the Tampa Bay area.
