Pinecrest Bakery to open in Gainesville

Here's another bit of good news for you guys. Pinecrest Bakery, a 24-hour Cuban bakery and cafe who operate multiple locations in the Miami area is coming to Gainesville. If you're a South Florida transplant like me, you are saddened by the lack of good pastelitos and Cuban bread up here. I don't care what anyone says, the options we currently have are pretty much mierda and for pata sucias.

So it's nice to see a little piece of Miami make its way up, and frankly about damn time! I'm told by a representative for the bakery that they plan to open "within 1 year more or less" and a location has yet to be determined. Where would you guys like to see them go? I for one am looking forward to tasty croquetas, pastelitos, and good Cuban bread.
