Best Italian Bread and Cold "Pitza"

This bakery has been in Hazleton for 100 years and the bread and pitza is consistently the best. Grew up eating the cold box pitza for lunch.

Locals that moved away, come back for their saucy, cold, square pizza that is scrumptious. Bakery has home-made cream-cheese buns, poppy-seed and nut rolls, melt-in-your-mouth breads and numerous other goodies. It's a small store adjoining their restaurant. Store opens 6 am and sells out of favorite foods - quick!

I was raised in the McAdoo area and moved to NC 15 years ago, but when we go back to Hazleton to visit family, it is necessary to get a couple boxes of Senape's pizza. They don't last long either. It's the only pizza I can eat cold, it's excellent.

There Italian Bread and Rolls are to die for. Their cold boxed Pitz (their name for Pizza) is a staple for out-of-towners to take back home for friends and family. I rate as my favorite breakfast meal is their Cinnamon and raisin with icing and coconut flakes. I used to go there with my father for Hard Rolls right out... More

Sometimes things are overrated, but the Pitzas are not! We ended up buying 20 of them to take to our son's team - and wished we had bought an extra one for ourselves! The cinnamon rolls were fantastic too!

Whenever we are hungry for baked goods, such as fresh bread, cold pizza, or My favorite --- Apple Walnut Cinnamon Loaf, I go straight to Senape's Bakery. They also have a restaurant & bar, complete with Old World Charm. A definite stop when you're in Hazleton. We even take Senape's cold pizza with us to out of towners, & send... More

You want to go here if you can. Staff very friendly. No preservatives in any of the products, so eating them is a priority. Try the tomatoe pie. Its different in that it has cheese, but served cold like the others. Assorted other stuff for the sweet tooth and of course, very fresh bread.

This is the best Pitza in town. They have the best breads and rolls. Always fresh. I also love their tea biscuits. A must stop if you are passing through. When ever we go to friends and family that have moved out of the area this is the one thing they request is the Pitza .

I stopped @ Senape's Bakery almost everyday from 7th grade thru 12th grade for 2 slices for my lunch. That was 180 days a year and often in the summer too. The girls who waited on me were the nicest and kindest people I've known. Each day they waited on me quickly and always asked me how I was doing.... More

If you are looking for an old-time bakery where one can get the fine baked goods with that smell only a bakery has, then you need to visit Senape's Bakery. You find everything from pizza hoagies to wonderful nut-cropped delights. It is a place that just reeks of that old time charm. I do not think you will be disappointed.
