Fratelli Baking

Bakery in Commercial Drive

An authentic holdover from the Drive's Italian immigrant era, this ever-busy bakery is teeming with fresh-made treats – from loaves of warm asiago cheese bread to more cakes and pastries than you could possibly sample in a lifetime. No harm in trying, though: you might be surprised how far you get. Whatever you go for, don't miss a creamy Neapolitan slice (or three).

Consider starting the makings of a great picnic here and then combining it with some cheese and charcuterie at the Italian deli next door. Once your ad hoc lunch is fully gathered, weave north a few blocks and find a picnic spot in Grandview Park.
