Used to live a couple blocks up the street from this place...went at least twice a month on Sunday mornings for hot ham and rolls! Ordered a number of birthday cakes and our daughter's baptismal cake here! Stopped in recently when we were in town and had to get some pastries! This is another... read more

Delicious cannoli, friendly service. This place smells amazing the moment you walk up to the door! Ordered a cake today and I have no doubt it will be amazing. I was referred by a friend, who says their cakes are fantastic. Can't wait to find out for myself. :)

I just wanted to thank the staff for making the delicious cake I ordered for my boyfriend's birthday party on 4/23/2015. It was a chocolate cake with vanilla pudding and cherry filling. It had whip creame frosting and was then covered in almonds. Everybody raved about it. I ordered a cake also from Canfora Bakery last year for his birthday... More

We visited this bakery on a bakery tour of Milwaukee. I had been to this location before, but never on a weekend. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that they have pizza on Saturday mornings! This pizza was fantastic! I definitely recommend this place!

I love the tiramisu here! Definitely worth any wait and it is not too pricey. The deli options are always delicious and their breads are perfect. Staff is friendly and always willing to answer questions. Note: If you want Sunday ham and rolls make sure you have a lot of time to wait.. busiest time for the shop! This is... More

Canfora is a neighborhood gem and went through a recent much needed renovation! It looks cleaner, updated and there's more room for the long lines for hot ham and rolls on Sunday AM after church and before the Packers' game!! Hint: try their hot roast beef and rolls available only on Saturday as there are no lines. Their rolls (and... More

I used to go here on Saturday mornings with my son to get a cookie for him - there are tons of choices - and a doughnut for me. The bakery stuff is great, but I was always most excited about the ham salad I'd buy for lunch.

I thought I'd never find a place to rival Sciortino's on Brady so I was thrilled to find this gem in Bayview! This is the best place to stop for pastries or Sunday ham & rolls (be careful to sneak in before they close!) before heading to Humboldt Park for a picnic.

Great variety of items but have been disappointed in the taste of some cookies...everyone that works here is pleasant and friendly--so ask their advice!
