New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

To find Gran Forno, you could look for the storefront window that displays bakers at work or you could simply close your eyes (mind your step) and follow your nose. The smell of bread, savory with rosemary, wafts to the street. On weekends, Gran Forno is crowded and clubby. Regulars gather in tennis togs to consult maps for their upcoming trip to Tuscany while the owners chime in with advice. Not surprisingly the focaccia, pastries, and biscotti are all excellent, but the best thing about this authentic, family-owned bakery is the way it continually pulls off the unexpected. At Thanksgiving, for example, Gran Forno's beautiful pumpkin pies no doubt upstage many a turkey. And this being Florida, the bakery also makes a key lime tartlet that, while generous, might still be a tad too small (and too delicious) to share.

Tips from foursquare

  • Proclaimed Best Bread by New Times Broward Palm Beach. No one can resist the blinding urge to devour treasures like oversized muffins, crusty ciabatta, hazelnut biscotti, and much more.

  • Jennifer J. on 04/03/12

    Apple strudel & lemon cream cake are my favorite!

  • The pastries are just how I like them, fresh and flaky!

  • Carla G. on 10/02/11

    The bread here is amazing! Every time we are in town we pick up a loaf

  • Kevin C. on 04/21/10

    Order the prosciutto sandwich. Desserts are big enough to split.
