Can't rave enough about this bakery. Everything is top notch. Keep in mind they make cookie trays for all occasions. They bent over backwards for a family wedding. We all buy more than we planned on; be sure to try the cannoli!

Amazing cookies & breads. The prices are reasonable, and over all it reminds me of the New York bakeries I went to as a kid.

This bakery was a stop on the Milwaukee Food tour we went on (see separate review) and it was so terrific we immediately came back right after the tour. Between our group, we tasted the cannoli (crispy and not too sweet), a couple kinds of...More
