“Love the mini pastries”

Sal & Dom's Pastry Shop
Ranked #10 of 29 Dessert in Bronx
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 August 2016 via mobile

Sal and Dom's is our go-to bakery and just happens to be our local pastry shop. All of our birthday, graduation, communion, and holiday cakes are from here. But our favorites are the mini pastries: we bring a box whenever we visit friends and family. Can't choose which pastry to try? Get an assortment of minis and try then all!

It's hard to stop by Sal & Dom's Pastry Shop without spending $30-$40 on desserts. Walk in to the shop and the smell just takes over, and your primal instinct is to just buy one of everything. We always buys their 7 layer cookies (not 3 layer like most shops) which are a family favorite. Overall their pastries and cookies can't be beat. Their lobster tails are always fresh, with a little bit of crunch on the shell. Man, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. I'll have to stop there this weekend.

This bakery never ceases to amaze us. We have been going here for years and never been disappointed with their pastries or cakes. All their staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make your visit a great experience. Don't forget to get some of those St. Joseph's pastries, this is only one of the bakeries many delicious specialities.

When you walk into this bakery you can feel the attitudes from the workers as well as the owners from a mile away. When it is your turn to order they don't say hello, smile or really even look at you. It seems like you are just another number and they are trying to get you in and out as quick as possible. When choosing a wedding cake they give you the filling options in a cupcake wrapper with a wooden stick. How are you supposed to choose what kind of cake you want like that? Their cakes and pastries may be good but I would rather go to dunkin' donuts.

We're sorry you had a bad experience on the day you came in. It clearly wasn't the day dated in your review as we were closed. Perhaps you came in the day before, which was Mother's Day, one of our busiest days. We would like to address one point you mentioned, as we feel the reason why we do so can be misunderstood by others. We actually do let people try our cream in a cupcake wrapper. This is only done because we simply have too many flavor combinations to have them all fresh & ready for people to try. We currently do not charge people for cake consultations, even though most places do. We encourage people to taste creams in advance & then order a small cake(s) to take home, share & perhaps get opinions from others.
