    The bagels are 💯, not too dense. The lard bread is also delish. I love this spot!

    Cannoli are good too. Ask for the large ones.

    You need the ham & cheese croissant in your life, ESPECIALLY if it's fresh out of the oven!

    GET THE LARD BREAD. It's utterly rich & decadent with a crispy crackly crust studded with many small cubes of meaty spiced salami & large punchy flecks of black pepper. Read more on

    Authentic Italian bakery in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood. Get there early to grab a loaf of the cinnamon raisin bread; it sells out fast. Cash only

    Lard bread - bread with salami and cheese baked into it - is as good as it sounds, and even better when it's fresh out of the oven.

    Great coffee and pastries. Staff isn't friendly, and it's often packed, so know what you want before getting in line.

    Consistently fresh and tasty breads, with none of the fuss or $$ you find in bakeries of this quality. Olive, chocolate chip and semolina breads are great. Lard bread is nature's Prozac.

    Macaroons, flavored coffees, and a wee hours fresh-baked bread program keep this tiny bakery buzzing around the clock.

    Eat the lard bread once it's fresh out of the oven. It still tastes good the next day but doesn't really last that long! Choco croissants used to be good but last I tried it I got some not so goo ones

    Get a loaf of lard bread. Warm it up in the oven at home, in the bag. Try hard not to eat the whole thing in one sitting.
