Stopped for 2 loaves of Italian Bread. Nice crisp crust and tender light bead inside. Nice selection of baked goods as well. One of the better bakeries in the Syracuse area.Will be back.

It is usually in and out, on Christmas Eve I waited in line for about 10 minutes, the bread was warm and fresh. We love to grab a flat loaf to munch on in the car!

Columbus bakery is a traditional Italian style bread store. Nothing but bread and an old fashion cash register. Best bread I have ever had. They also have a small deli next door

be sure you buy more than you think you need....because too often my family will eat a loaf in the car on the drive home.

If you pass up on a trip you to Columbus Bakery you will be the one losing out .In fact dont just get one loaf-get two .We always get the flat but you can also get a round extra crispy if you want the EXTRA crunch.

Just driving up to this place is a treat, fresh bread either flat or points. Just park right out front and run in to get the bread. Nothing fancy here, just REALLY good fresh bread.

i was taken here starting about 1954. the crusts were always crispy crunchy. it would make a sort of crackling noise when cut with our huge serrated bread knife. most any loaf i've had in recent years is not very crispy. they also charge the same price for pizza dough as they do for baked bread.... that lost me completely...

Real true bakers and breads found here! Doesn't look like much but the smell of fresh baked bread and the taste of the bread is amazing! Soft inside and crunchy outside make this bread a must have. This bakery has been here for as long as I can remember and probably much longer. I used to go with my grandmother... More
