Took a huge variety of Italian cookies and cannoli on a trip with friends to Kentucky. Nothing can compare ...just like Sister Lucy made at SJA years ago! WOW what a treat!

Hot ham and rolls on Sunday, homemade salads, soups and sandwiches, ther is something for everyone. The bread and rolls are crisp crusted but soft inside, and bakery, cakes and pastries will not disappoint. Be prepared to wait on the weekend for the after Church rush.

This place is an Italian bakery and deli. I never tried the deli, but the bakery is good! It has cookies and donuts, but their cannolis and biscotti are the best!

She used a custom image we provided her with to decorate our cake by careful skilled hand. The cake was delicious and everyone loved it. I shared leftovers at work and it was gone in an hour! Everyone loved... More

We always go here to order our cakes for any special occasion, graduations, birthdays, etc. Love their rolls for hot ham & rolls. Always grab a container of their home made Italian bread crumbs when ever I stop in.

On any given Sunday, be prepared to wait in line for their classic and sumptuous hot ham and their fabulous rolls! But recent remodeling and increase in waiting area makes the lines move much more efficiently. Their ham salad is wonderful on the tiny rolls and the hot roast beef on Saturdays is also a great weekend favorite. Canfora's bread... More

Delicious cannoli, friendly service. This place smells amazing the moment you walk up to the door! Ordered a cake today and I have no doubt it will be amazing. I was referred by a friend, who says their cakes are fantastic. Can't wait to find out for myself. :)
