This bread is beyond good! you can get rolls, cookies, cannolis and of course the wonderful Italian bread loaf, with lots of sesame seeds and have them slice it or not. Glorioso's sells it up the street and they only sell the best so stop in and get it fresh out of the oven!

I just love the bread and rolls. I drive 10 miles just for the buns. You can't go wrong. And you are right on Brady St. The old Hippy Street.

We walked in and were immediately served by friendly staff. We tried the cannoli and tiramisu, even though there was quite a variety of pastries that looked delicious, and weren't disappointed. Our stop here was definitely a highlight during our time in Milwaukee and we'd for sure come back if we're ever in town again!

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.

This bakery is one of the best in Milwaukee. It has spectacularly good cookies and their crusty Italian bread is wonderful.
