Bella Luna Bakery Cafe is now open in Merced at the former De'Angelos space on Main st.
After the fire closed De'Angelos, Vinnie (owner) moved it near motel drive off the freeway.
Then he decided to open the new bakery/cafe after major reconstruction of the burnt out location.
The new cafe/bakery serves sandwiches and house baked goods including fine breads, pastries, and cakes.
I have been there 4 times, and so far I am really impressed with the quality of food Vinnie is serving.
I tried the Caprese, San Joaquin, and Italian Beef sandwiches which are prepared on awesome house baked bread and made with the freshest ingriedients.
Vinnie sells a nice selection of high end breads including ciabatta and an italian baguette, both of which are excellent.
I hope Vinnie's fresh baked goods go over in Merced since he has put a lot of money and effort into making them fresh daily.
Bella Luna is a great addition to Merced's anemic dining scene.
