“Best chocolate chip cookies around”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

This is a small little bakery on Perez road that you can easily miss. Look for the little Italian bakery signs on the side of the road pointing to the bakery. They are mostly a sweets and cookie shop, but they do bake a couple different loafs of bread. I go for the Italian chocolate chip cookies, wedding surprise cookies and cannoli. I don't know what makes the Italian chocolate chip cookies Italian, but they are some of the best cookies I have tried. The owners and workers are all very genuinely friendly and pleasant. I love to see family owned businesses like this, so give them a try.

“Industrial section of Cathedral City, filled with auto care etc. one finds unexpectedly a treasure!”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

Stepping into this bakery memories of old Italy capture and over loads one. Smell of bread baking wafts through the air lighting up the senses. Frankie quickly offers taste of his daily offering, just out of the oven.
Great selection; breads, canoli, Italian specialty bakery goods.
Only finest of ingredients are discerned, with his immpecable skills added to create perfection!
Italy's loss is certainly our gain!
A little out of the way, but worth it!!
Once is not enough! Like being back in the old world, for sure.
