Nothing smells like home to me like the inside of a small Tripoli bakery box filled with almond bars.

Tripoli is a bakery with Pizza Parlor. Nobody beats Tripoli's bread sticks, while most people rave about their pizza, for me its all about the fresh crispy bread. But when in there for bread its a great excuse to stop and have a slice of pizza or two or three.

This is a great family run business that for generations continues to support the community that supports them.

Very good baked goods. Especially the Italian breads. Of course the Italian pastries are a plus, and the pizza is a must for us every week. Every Saturday we pick up a full pan and whatever is left over we can freeze and enjoy during the week as a snack. Just reheat and your back in heaven.....

Tripoli bakery and pizza has been owned by the same Italian family since 1924, and I don't think too much has changed over that time period. The pizza has a unique flavor and is delicious and addictive. Unlike American-style pizza, it is not smothered in a heavy layer of cheese but comes out of the large sheet pans in which it is cooked with a light coating of mozzarella sprinkled over a sweet layer of tomato sauce. The sauce has some flavorings and spices that definitely set it apart from the usual. The dough is thin and tasty as one might expect from a bakery. Although the pizza shop has a small counter, one should consider it takeout only.
The bakery portion of the store has a fine variety of pastries and excellent bread. Tripoli makes a whole-wheat Italian bread that is the best I've ever had. The business also has its own parking lot, which is convenient considering its location in downtown Lawrence.

Between the fruit squares and cannoli that are made to order there is a reason why they have a few branches but the main one in Lawrence can not be beat. Treat your self just once in your lifetime or this will be on your bucket list for ever. The pizza and meat pie are award winning. the neighborhood has changed but the taste is still the same.
