My husband and I recently discovered, truly, one of Baltimore's Best Bakeries in town. It's called Piedigrotta, located on Central Avenue just a bit off the Little Italy track and fabulous. Piedigrotta is family owned, a husband and wife enjoy a tiny spot on the first floor of a typical B'more rowhouse. All of the baked goods are made fresh daily and their specialties include fresh paninis, Italian cookies, baked breads (cranberry and walnut is awesome!), cakes, Tiramisu like I've never experienced, Italian pies and pastries. Don't know if it's rumor or not, but someone told me they'll even make a pan of Lasagna on a customers request! If your searching for excellent quality baked goods for a special occasion, give them a try. Patisserie Poupon look out!
