Hess Bakery & Deli
Buttery, flakey, German pastries are served in this quaint all-German deli. Not too sweet, perfectly balanced and wonderful. With a cup of coffee on a cold morning, there is nothing better.

A wide selection of gelato flavors is available at this Sicilian bakery and café located at Point Ruston. Unlike ice cream, gelato is mixed at a much slower rate, with more milk and less cream (and fewer calories!), giving it the smooth texture many travelers to Italy have come to love.
