Cardinali Bakery III
Ranked #1 of 4 Dessert in Syosset
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 April 2015

Cardinali's is a great bakery. Most everything there is great. Kaes are all way above average and super fresh. Cookies are decent - about what you would expect from a decent bakery. Breads are all fresh and tasty - amazing crust. Only downside is that none of this is cheap. You will spend 25-50% more than in other bakeries. You are definitely getting what you pay for, but if your running on a budget, this may not be you best first stop.
We have eaten there about 4 times total. Another reviewer commented on rude service. We have never had anything other than pleasant, professional service. Even when we got there 20 minutes before tehy closed, we still got pleasant greeting and decent service. The seating is super tight, so you order will not get to you in under 5 seconds; but still a decent place for desert.

Overall, they make very tasty deserts that are beautiful enough to impress whoever you bring it to (both for looks and taste). If you go there for an after dinner coffee and desert, you will not be disappointed (and those prices are comparable to most restaurants, but both coffee and desert will blow you away)

They have nice desserts. I love the mix dessert box. It's pretty busy during the holidays, and it's open late on a regular weeknight.

We have visited family in Syosset the past 4 summers. Each time we have returned to Syosset, we have come to Cardinali Bakery III to eat in their cafe and buy cookies

The cafe is a pleasant airy spot with a large window to watch the world go by. This past week, my wife and I had tea and coffee and hard rolls and biscotti. The rolls and biscotti were fresh and delicious. The service was pleasant - they brought us our food and then left us alone to relax and chat. Some other people were in the cafe doing the same thing as we were

We also bought 4 small boxes of tasty cookies of a nice variety of types to bring to friends and family.

I heard people for a while rave about the pastries and bread at this place so I finally decided to try it. I can only speak for this location in Syosset, I am guessing (hoping) the others are better. The place looked run down and was totally empty when I went - I couldn't even tell if they were open. The pastry cases were half empty - and the food that was there (mostly cookies) looked like they had been sitting there a while. The bread I ordered was good and did seem fresh. However, I wouldn't go back because the women behind the counter were horrible.

The staff kept touching their hair and faces then touching the inside of the bags to open them and put the food in. One even sneezed and didn't wash her hands - just kept serving. They were rolling their eyes at customers and talking about customers to other people there - it was uncomfortable. Someone asked to speak to a manager and one of the girls said "why - you gonna complain about me" I could not believe the attitude.

They accept cash only (at least that is what we were told).
