The German hard rolls are supreme. You wouldn't think you would find German hard rolls in an Italian bakery that has delicious treats, the hard rolls may not be German but they are the best in town.

The bakery, especially the Italian cookies are the closet I have ever tasted that come close to grandmas. It also brings a tear to my eye, nobody does baking better than grandmas.
