In a world with processed everything, the unspoiled bread from Columbus is a Syracuse tradition. No finer bread is found anywhere like theirs. Usually warm right out of the oven, what could be better?

If you want some incredible old school Italian bread, this is absolutely the place !!! Available in traditional loaf style, rounds, or flats, it is all very good. Baked in old style brick ovens on premises in the Italian section of town. Definitely a must try.

Best Italian bread in Syracuse. Both the loaves and the flats are great, baked fresh everyday. Stop in to pick up for dinner or any special occasions. They only bake the bread.

No better reward than a loaf of hot Columbus bread. Crispy outside and hot fluffy inside. You need to buy at least 2 because one will not make it home.

This really is some of the best bread on Syracuse. Get a warm loaf of flat bread and try to make it home without eating any. It won't happen!

I absolutely love this bread. Nice crust but soft inside. I always stop for a regular loaf and a flat loaf when I plan to make Italian food for dinner.
