Must Visit!! Deliziosa!!!!

This little corner bakery/café is a must stop. As a first timer to Baltimore, I did the research and tried to hit all of the most recommended local flavors. Vaccaro's was so good, I went 2 nights in a row for dessert. Try the lemon or mango gelato!! Oh, and believe me, no one person needs 3... read more

We read about the place, so, on our way back home we stopped for some tasty takeout. The lady behind the counter was simply the most helpful, patient and professional! Better than many eat-in places we have been to! The food, when we go to it, was just as good as the folklore that surrounds it!

The canolli are Balto's best and I really like the long sugar cookies. Check the daily specials for good deals.

Great place for gelato or pastry. A little crowded for take out but moves along quickly. Ask for samples if you aren't sure what exactly you would like. Servings of gelato are HUGE!

I actually don't eat here - I get take-out - and lots of it to take back home. Whenever I am in Baltimore I am required to return home with a large selection of pastries by Vaccaro's. I honestly don't know what one is best because they are all so good - cannolis, eclairs and mini-eclairs, cookies - what a... More

I went to Vaccaro's for something to go after having dinner down the corner at a seafood restaurant. The canollis and the Eclair were both excellent! Even though it was snowing outside and the streets were slushy, there was a considerable queue.

Great welcome and really helpful friendly service. Even apologized about the table they gave us which was fine. Latte was delicious and all the cakes were fab. We didn't need any dinner!

This bakery isn't directly near anything but is worth the visit. They freshly fill cannolis on site. The tiramisu is one of the higher priced items on the menu but is worth it! Believe me. They have a selection of fresh Italian cookies also. There are drinks to purchase as well as indoor seating.

This place was recommended to us to have dessert. They warned us to bring our appetite and boy they weren't kidding! The cannoli's, gelato and cakes are all super sized but at same time, were great tasting! Cost comes along, so won't be cheap, but it was all worth it! In fact this night, we made dessert our meal!

Amazing cappuccino on a cold rainy day before we headed home. I only wish I had room for one of the amazing looking desserts.
