I used to take my children here when they were small and now their children are grown! How time flies. This fine institution remains though many around it have disappeared or changed hands. It has not diminished in any way and remains a favorite.

Local Italian bakery/deli, fresh backed breads and cookies daily, great sandwiches and soups, don’t forget to get an Italian ice (summer only). All made to order. No tables all made to take out, Perfect to bring home to the beach or picnics.

A local recommended that we stop by this little Italian bakery and we were sure glad we did. We only ordered pastries, but they were phenomenal. We were there on a day when they had Napoleans, which might not be something they usually carry. Delicious!...More

My friends were in for a visit. We went to grab just a snack. It was a long wait, and after we left and opened our sandwich, it was the wrong one ;/ Disappointed
