We love this bakery, everything they make is excellent. I have a personal bias for their cream puffs, best in town!! Good cannoli too. Fun to get a sweet there and coffee at one of the coffee places down the street. Also excellent breads. Good the whole way around.

Sciortino's continues to bake their fabulous bread right in the Brady Street bakery like they have done for decades . Used to have to line up on the sidewalk to purchase the terrific bread and pastries. So happy that you now can purchase the bread in grocery stores, but a trip to the original Peter Sciortino's is a treat !!

I love everything about the place and the fact you can eat outside is a plus.. it is one of the few places on the street that is child friendly and so many cookie choices!
