Serving Up Our Humble Beginnings
What began as Bern and Gert Laxer’s first cafe has turned into a tradition of homemade marvels

Our Story

Our tasty story begins in 1954 when Bern and Gert Laxer expanded their downtown Tampa luncheonette under the new name, Bern and Gert's Little Midway, a sandwich cafe and ice cream parlor on Cass St. Inspired by midways, the section of a carnival that features the sideshows and games, every visit was something of whimsy.

And while the sandwich shop eventually closed in 1956, the Laxer story continued to become the Bern’s legacy. Today, our ice cream and pastry parlor pays homage to where it all started, whipping up classic Harry Waugh Dessert Room favorites with a few reimagined concoctions for a new generation of Little Midway comers.

Little Midway Pints to go are still available for delivery through Haven on UberEats and curbside pick up at Haven.
