“Delicious”

Giancarlo Fine European Pastries
Ranked #2 of 4 Bakeries in Staunton
Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 December 2017 via mobile

If you don't like delicious pastry don't come here. It's a little bit of a challenge to find the little alley that this place is hidden on but it's well worth driving around a residential neighborhood looking like you're casing the area for nefarious purposes.
It's a small shop filled with fresh and delicious pastries, confections, and breads. Be prepared to wait in line to get something but it's worth the wait. You tell Giancarlo cares about his craft and he's happy to tell you all about his creations.

A must visit bakery. The food is all about flavor and presentation. Giancarlo is so passionate about his work and you can taste it in every bite. It's not about sugar here- it's about what taste work together to bring delight. A variety of choices.

If you want fine European pastries this is the place to go. It is family owned and run by a husband and wife. Limited days and hours but well worth adjusting your schedule to pick up some of these delectable treats. His patience and experience shows through his work. Every pastry is hand crafted and designed to perfection. He and his wife are very nice and love to chat with their customers when time allows. After coming home with these Awesome pastries our guests raved about them and asked where we got them. We were sure to tell them, Giancarlo's Fine European bakery. We will be back for sure.

This family owned bakery has the BEST cakes ever. I am not a cake person myself, but this cake was great! They do custom order cakes, which we took advantage of to make a White Chocolate, Lemon, Raspberry cake with Vanilla Buttercream. The cake was not too yucky sweet. It had a great fruitiness that you'll rarely find elsewhere. The buttercream was so light, fluffy and airy. Since we don't live in VA, my daughter was very disappointed that she won't be able to get another cake next year, or for any other family events/birthdays. The cakes are amazing! If we're ever back in the area, we'll have to stop by and get some type of treat, because this cake beats all. (Including some of the slices we had in France!!!)
Highly recommend this place!!! The cakes are amazing, and so is the price!
