Delicious Italian Bakery

By sprungonfood on 2/10/2014

This classic, family run Italian bakery has just about every baked good you would expect, and some you may not even know about. I'm not very good when there's too much variety, I get pretty overwhelmed. And there is a lot of variety here. From cookies, to classic Italian treats like cannoli and gelato, to cakes and tarts, this bakery has it all. So, I took a deep breath, asked for a couple suggestions, and went with some classics from a few different categories. You can read the rest of my review with photos here:

Delicious, but customer service is horrible

By Finnhuds on 3/18/2010

This bakery is almost always delicious, but the customer service is almost always ridiculously bad. They make great pastries, but they also make you feel terrible. There is no reason to act this way. Everyone in there is angry, unfriendly, and downright rude. I don't understand it.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
