Yum Yum!

The breads here are phenomenal and you just can't beat the deli sandwiches (for price and quantity). My usual is the large Italian sub with the works which normally takes two days to finish! The only drawback is finding parking since parking on this section of Washington Street is very limited.

Whenever I get to my hometown, Gloucester, I stock up on Italian bread to bring back to NC. You can freeze it and it will stay awhile, great for toast later! Personally my favorite place for Italian bread.

Sclafani's Bakery is a must visit for anyone coming to the Gloucester area. They sell the most delicious bread. Everyone raves about it, and you will be hooked once you taste it! I like to pop in once every few months and get one of their delicious sandwiches. I recommend calling in advance as the place is packed around lunchtime... More

Sclafani ("Scully's") bread & Virgilio's bread have a decades-old, friendly competition going on, home to home as well as business to business. Sclafani wins. There are even rumors that Virgilio's actually sugars its bread. Try them both and see what you think! Sclafani bread has a perfect crust. It's ideal for toasting, for sandwiches, or to accompany a meal. Especially... More
