A trove of tasty treats and tapas. In my first trip, I left with pasta salad, meatballs, and a cannoli. All so delicious! There’s a quality and purpose to this food - I’ll be back for more!

Came here for the first time after seeing it when passing through Nelsonville. Got the fudge brownie, a fresh fruit danish, a cream puff, and a cannoli. All of it was amazing, the danish was the best I’ve ever had. He’s very friendly and my family has enjoyed everything we’ve got. Would 100% recommend

I purchased a chocolate croissant. The consistency was perfect. The dark chocolate inside complimented the buttery, flakey, pastry. Staff was very kind and helpful when choosing what to order.

The country loaf, croissant (both almond and chocolate), and cream puff were excellent. Wish we had tried everything in the case.

Hate to give a poor review to someone trying to bring something nice to town, but. Had to wait at least 15 minutes for a Godfather and an Italian sub. The Godfather had a couple slices of meat, one leaf of lettuce, and I found two long strings of salami casing in it. We bought a desert that we threw out after taking one bite. It tasted stale and dry. My wife works at a bakery and theres no way that pastry was made that day. We ended up adding our own lettuce and other toppings to the sandwiches after getting them home. Some of the other pastries and desserts looked good, but the subs were a bummer and those and piece of cake not worth $30. Sorry

The chocolate dipped cannoli with strawberries and pretzels was divine. I probably should have taken the owners advice and bought more.

I ordered cupcakes for my son’s birthday and they were excellent! They were flavorful and the price was very reasonable. I have also tried some of the other sweet treats they offer. Everything has been wonderful! The lemon blueberry muffins are my favorite! It’s so nice to have a bakery in Nelsonville that serves high end food but with an affordable price. I highly recommend Alfonso’s!
