Description

This is what you need to know about a visit to Mancini’s. First, the aroma is heavenly. Each loaf is hand-twisted, which means the bakers move like an Indianapolis 500 pit crew to get 10,000 loaves made each day. Next, you need to know that the shop has its original working brick oven from 1924, just to the left of the counter area. Here customers can watch as a baker deftly uses a peel with a seven-foot handle to maneuver the loaves. There is a final challenge... trying to leave Mancini’s with only one loaf of their warm, crusty Italian bread under your arm.
