Hot ham and rolls on Sunday, homemade salads, soups and sandwiches, ther is something for everyone. The bread and rolls are crisp crusted but soft inside, and bakery, cakes and pastries will not disappoint. Be prepared to wait on the weekend for the after Church rush.

This place is an Italian bakery and deli. I never tried the deli, but the bakery is good! It has cookies and donuts, but their cannolis and biscotti are the best!

Rosa and Carl are master bakers and decorators. Rosa helped us choose the best cake for our guests and our budget. She used a custom image we provided her with to decorate our cake by careful skilled hand. The cake was delicious and everyone loved it. I shared leftovers at work and it was gone in an hour! Everyone loved... More

This small neighborhood bakery offers Italian bakery, traditional bakery and have a good deli for salads, etc. They have lunch specials everyday too. The Italian cookies come in all varieties, and are delicious. My favorite is the chocolate eclairs, but don't stop there. They bake the BEST pies, cakes and paczki's. Make sure to get your orders in early. They... More

We always go here to order our cakes for any special occasion, graduations, birthdays, etc. Love their rolls for hot ham & rolls. Always grab a container of their home made Italian bread crumbs when ever I stop in.

On any given Sunday, be prepared to wait in line for their classic and sumptuous hot ham and their fabulous rolls! But recent remodeling and increase in waiting area makes the lines move much more efficiently. Their ham salad is wonderful on the tiny rolls and the hot roast beef on Saturdays is also a great weekend favorite. Canfora's bread... 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
