Our favorite Italian bread. They have fresh sliced cold cuts and make huge, fresh sandwiches to go. Homemade Italian cookies and pastries. They also have Italian grocery items.

One of the best bakeries in Gloucester. Located on Washington St, just before coming into downtown. They do often sell out, but then there is so many other bakeries you wont miss out.
