The place looks warm and bright when you come in, especially in a rainy day. Absolutely the smell will catch you and you will not just buy a cup of coffee but some cookies and a extra piece of cake. Enjoy!

A family member asked me to stop by here and get her some cookies and couldn't decide what else to get! I wanted to try a little bit of everything.. who wouldn't at a bakery! The service as fast and the selection large. So glad I came by!

VIP has exceptional desserts which include pastries, cakes, cookies, and gelato. The cannoli was one of the best ever and the almond pasticiotti was the best I ever had.

Wow what a find. This came recommended by a colleague who stumbled upon it while visiting Little Italy in Baltimore. Vaccaro's Italian Pastry Shop offers a large variety of cookies, sweet deserts and gelato. It wasn't crowded when we went, even though it was the weekend, so we found the service to be just fine.

Nice gelato, coffee and Italian pastry place, but the desserts are huge. My wife ordered a snickers volcano ($10) and it was the size for 4 people. Service was a little slow but they were packed. The line was out the door for the to go counter.

The original vaccaro's in Little Italy is a Baltimore institution. The satellite locations around maryland are not the same. The gelato is always amazing. The portions are huge. They even have to go bags that keep your gelato cool until you get home.
