I had my mother in law with me for the day. I suggested we try Villanis Bakery. Its a bit of a drive from Davidson but we did it! This bakery has been on my radar for a while. As a Google Guide, I try to find unique placesthis is definitely worth the drive. The employees are nice & helpful. Its a very small place, I mean.small! But its packed with baked sweets. We ordered two coffees, the chocolate cake, a chocolate croissant and I picked up a bacon, cheese biscuit to have with my breakfast in the morning. I like to crack an organic egg with next day biscuits. Yum! I really wish they had indoor seating especially when it gets cold. Villanis Bakery gets 5 stars from me!
Went to dinner last night and had a craving for some sweets. Looked up the nearest bakery and ended up at Villanis Bakery. The service was excellent, helpful staff. The selection was incredible. Took the deserts home and the wife and I loved our selections. We got some cookies and cheese cake. The cheese cake was top notch.
Me and my wife have been here twice and it has been amazing every time! The first things you notice when you walk in are the smells (amazing) and the great customer service. Every time we've come in, all the staff greeted us and helped us asap. The baked goods are top notch. Maybe the best in Charlotte. Everything tastes so fresh. The cream puffs and the brownies are the stars. If you go here, get a brownie. They are the best in town.
We have been living here for 30 years and this is the most authentic Italian pastry shop we have found. The sfogliatelli (lobster tail) was excellent and reminds us of Italian bakeries in the northeast. Great range of pastries, cakes, coffees and espressos. Service was great, but expect a wait. No indoor seating, but a nice area with tables outside. We will come again.
A great atmosphere with delicious bakery items. I love that the operation hours are 7am-10pm. You can enjoy the bakery throughout the day and whenever your schedule fits best.
