We have said before that each time we wander downtown we experience  a special moment! In this case, it was a treat.  We have been waiting for Nana Teresa's Bake Shop
to open at 31 S. 5th Street ever since we saw the sign go up.

We had actually met Nana herself before the opening as our taste buds were urging
 us down to see progress on the shop.

We, we wait no more.  Neither should you!  This is such a welcome addition to our little Island, it brings a sense of chic class.  You are in for deserts as you have never seen nor tasted ( of course, other than your Mom's).  The treats are beautifully concocted and displayed but what they taste like is amazing.  I am thinking Paris, folks, or the North End in Boston. 
I have tasted delicacies in both places.

Nana Teresa herself

The shop is in one of our historic buildings and care has been taken 
to respect that in every way.
I loved getting a peak into her kitchen, or sitting out on the porch and letting the afternoon waft away.

Let me say, here, that none of my recommendations are paid advertisements...they are what we enjoy and it our pleasure to share with Islanders and Visitors both.
 My photos do not do Nana teresa's justice so please go see for yourselves....

See Nana Teresa's Facebook page where I found some of these photographs for lots more information. Nicely she is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
You will appreciate the beautiful ambiance just as much as the delicacies!!
