Baking Bread since 1895! Columbus Baking Co

There is no other bread like the bread made by Columbus Baking. My memories go back over 50 yrs and the anticipation I had of my parents picking up a flat loaf after church. We took one of our grandchildren there last weekend to buy bread and a loaf of dough to make pizza and I took the opportunity... read more

This is a hole-in -the wall bakery. They only bake bread - no cookies, pastries, pies or other baked goods. BUT, the bread is often hot from the oven. They do one thing, and they do it right. They do sell cold cuts next door, but I have never been on that side of the business. We go strictly for... More

For the absolute best Italian bread in Syracuse you have to go to Columbus Bakery. You can get flat bread, hard crust or Italian sandwich bread. Simply the best.

Ordered two loaves of sandwich bread for a family Italian dinner. It was excellent. Came out hot and fresh!

This is worth the stop to get authentic Italian bread. Make sure you buy at least two because I guarantee you will have eaten the first one before you reach home!

My wife and I have been going to Columbus Bakery for years and actually going back to our college days at S.U. The minute you walk in to their bakery you are transported back to Italy and the mouthwatering smell of freshly baked bread. There have been times that their bread never lasted the trip home before it was consumed... More

Like Italian bread? You will love Columbus Bakery. I especially like the pull-apart round. You haven't visited Syracuse unless you've been to Coumbus.

Syracuse is home to many favorite foods and dining establishments. Columbus bakery Italian bread is a Sunday dinner must have. People stand in line on holidays just for a fresh hot loaf of this amazing bread. The rest of the time, it's always a hope you'll get there before that last loaf is gone.

Seriously, it's some of the best bread we've had, ever. We had sandwiches made next door at their deli, and ate outside. I can't tell you how many cars stopped at the curb and ran inside for some loaves of bread in less than 2 minutes each. What a great little business they've had for all of these years. The... More
