Columbus Bakery has some of the best Italian bread anywhere! The bread is usually hot from the oven when you buy it so I always find it tough to get the load home without ripping off a piece to munch on in the car. No need for butter or olive oil, when hot, you can easily eat a whole loaf... More

Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Better yet--open your eyes, and do the same thing. Take in the most wonderful, warm smell of homemade bread. Just like being at my Italian grandmother's house growing up. A loaf for home, and one for the road. Old world. Old school. Nothing better. Columbus Bakery is the real deal.

Columbus Bakery has been around for many years and they still use old fashion ovens. It is one of the landmarks in Syracuse and everyone should stop and buy a flat loaf of bread. I guarantee it will be eaten before you get to your destination. Growing up, every Sunday after mass we would stop and buy several loafs and... More

The Columbus Baking Company is a true gem that been in existence for along time and all signs show that will continue. They have a basic dough that is used for a variety of loaves and is also sold as pizza dough. My wife has used their dough for pizza for many years and I have never had pizza anywhere... More

My grandparents starts buying Columbus Italian bread about 50 years ago and continued all of their married lives! I have continued the tradition and never drive through the downtown area of Syracuse without stopping for at least one loaf! I am Italian and know :)

This bakery has been in business for generations, and thank goodness, the recipe never changes. You can buy Italian bread in round flats, loaves, sliced or unsliced. You know you are getting close when you can smell the bread baking several blocks away. The price may seem a little high per loaf, but it is well worth it. They added... More

My wife's Italian family introduced me to this place 30 years ago and I have never found better Italian Bread anywhere. Try the "Flats" fresh out of the oven. But be sure to buy more than one, as you may eat the whole loaf before you get home!
