The Perfect Bun Bakery Sells More Than Just Cupcakes — Photo courtesy of Kelly SueSometimes when traveling, people get a little homesick. The new culture, the language or even the food can make you miss home. Never Fret. The Perfect Bun Bakery in Rome now offers more than just cupcakes as comfort food for expats and tourists. They now offer a wide selection of items from bagels to salads to remind you of home.
When the owners of the Perfect Bun (a popular American-style burger joint near Piazza Navona) saw a niche market for tourists and expats living in the city yearning for hard to find comfort food, they decided to fill a void that was missing in the Eternal City. They decided to take over Josephine's Bakery, a bakery near Campo de' Fiori that specialized in American-style cupcakes and British scones and expand the business. Today it's known as the Perfect Bun Bakery and Deli and the owners certainly sell more than just a cupcake. Did we mention how delicious the cupcakes are here? Buonooo.
Today, the Perfect Bun Bakery and Deli also serves up fresh bagels with cream cheese and lox, Caesar salads, chicken wraps, They even have a small grocery selection of popular ingredients and dressings that tourists and expats love such as maple syrup, marshmallows, jalapeno peppers and other Mexican spices and sauces. The bakery and shop is always expanding their grocery list of items they plan to feature so keep checking their website for more details!
