Touch of Italy bakes the best Italian pastries outside the Bronx and you can enjoy them right here at the beach. I had reviewed this Five Points (Lewes, DE) location six years ago, and after three trips back for cannoli, etc., in the past four...months, we found it just as good. Whether for Italian bread, rolls, biscotti, pastries or cakes, "Touch" is the place. With proud napoletan' paisan'/manager Raymond on site, he and his assistants run a tight ship. But grant your fans one wish, maybe two! Bring back the espresso machine, and please (per favore!), bake some sfogliatelle, at least ogni tanto?More
When you move anywhere from NY italian bread is a challenge. The offerings I had found up until this were to say the least just ok. I went to Touch of Italy and to my surprise I walked into a great find. The woman who...helped me understood my situation and handed me a great load of seeded bread. Very friendly service and the bread was fantastic. I will be back to sample some of the pastries as well.More
I will make a special trip to this bakery, period. They have THE BEST chocolate macaroon cookies, period. I, joke with the staff, that I'm buying my $ 40 box of cookies, and I don't care HOW much it costs, because it is SO DELICIOUS!...The have chocolate cookies too, I think they are made with sour cream. They are equally amazing.
You MUST go to Lewes to order their baked goods. It is off the beaten path, but worth it, every time. And there is an older gentleman who is always there, I think he is a mater'd at their restaurant in Lewes. He is hysterical. If you ask him ANYTHING about Italy, you will get a quick lesson in Italian geography, or food, or how to pronouce the different bakery items in Italian, or any other interesting thing he choses to converse about. I enjoy him as much as the baked goods!
YOU CAN FREEZE their cookies, and they are JUST as good thawed.
Grew up in South Philly so I know a real Italian bakery. You can not fool a real cannoli person. The cookies are amazing (especially lemon wedding). They fill the cannoli's as you wait to perfection. The biscotti's were perfect. Can not wait to go...back for the rolls and bread. The man that waited on me was extremely friendly and explained about what they had. Will make this stop a once a week thing
We love this bakery at the Village of Five Points located towards the back across from the street Green Turtle driving beyond Fish On.
We have been coming here since they opened. It's more of a production center for the Touch of Italy deli restaurants--which...we love too;-).
There are a few tables inside and outside. You can always order take away, but we order a few cookies and a double shot expresso cappuccino---the best in the area!!! Forget Starbucks!
The gal here is very accommodating and there's a bit of a wait because she is crafting the expresso drink especially for you!
We plan to come back every visit to Lewes.More
In the area just driving around looking at property and came upon The Touch of Italy Bakery. Not a lot of selection when we were there late Saturday morning but we did buy some fresh bread that was good.More
