Italian Bread & Biscuits

A classic Italian bakery in Soho. The Village was once full of such establishments, but they are going going gone as with Zito's, formerly on Bleecker. Vesuvio's looks like the real deal, but the owner sold out to a cappuccino concern a while back. They wisely kept the turn of the century (the last one) storefront intact.

I love that store!! Been there for coffee once but love walking by it all the time. :-)

I've featured it in my blog a year ago, I think.

At least they did that. Here, all franchises have to look the same so everything goes.

I think some retail bakeries and many new bakeries are also cafés, serving coffee and tea to customers who wish to consume the baked goods on the premises.
