La Guli is a family-run Italian bakery, café and gelati shop. In Astoria since 1937, the wood-paneled shop remains authentically Italian and produces excellent quality bread, pastry, and other sweets.
More than 30 kinds of cookies and biscotti, plus more that are sugar-free. Other baked goods include cakes, bread, cannoli, chiacchere, and tarts. Like a bakery anywhere in Italy, La Guli also sells chocolates (here they're Perugina), ice cream cakes, and gelati and Italian ices.
What to know:
There are a few tables in the shop so you can have a snack while you order more to take home. If you order an iced tea they'll ask if you want a scoop of lemon ice in it. Say yes and you will be so glad you did.
