Welcome to CAO Bakery & Café, named after the Cao family whose baking tradition extends three generations. CAO combines the best of Cuban baking traditions with a warm and friendly café atmosphere. As South Florida’s fastest growing Cuban bakery chain, CAO has thrived on recipes handed down through generations and loyal customers who expect, and are treated to sweet cafecitos, fresh pastelitos and the most delicious baked goods in town.
CAO Bakery & Café is led by South Florida residents and childhood friends, Antonio Cao and Carlos De Varona. Antonio and Carlos previously owned and operated six Vicky Bakery locations from 2008 to 2018, before branching off to launch CAO Bakery & Café. Antonio or, Tony serves as the head of product production, quality control and operations, is a third-generation baker and pastry chef with over 20 years’ experience. At the age of 13, Tony began working directly under his grandfather, Antonio V. Cao, the founder of Vicky Bakery, where he developed a lifelong passion and knowledge of the baking and customer service industries. His partner, Carlos De Varona, holds a background in finance and international business, and oversees construction, purchasing, Human Resources and accounting. Cao Bakery & Café was born from generations of Cuban tradition. CAO expands the legacy by bringing the next generation of Cuban bakeries to your neighborhood by the next-gen, Cuban American Original (CAO).
