We miss Sarno's on Vermont and were told that this bakery had similar Italian pastries, cookies and rum cakes. There's a deli in the back and Italian products as well.
The rum cake is close to but not quite as delicioso as Sarno's. The pastries and cookies are wonderful though.
The female clerk, however, was surly and impatient. Why is it that the Italian bakeries (e.g., the now-defunct Ramona's in San Pedro) have such terrible staff members?
