East Rochester's Leo's Bakery and its well deserved success!

If you have a sweet tooth, you're my person! I love a good dessert. Although I avoid frequent sweet indulgences, I do enjoy a muffin or a croissant with my morning coffee or a delicious cannoli after dinner. What ever it is that I choose, I always have one rule that I stick with. My calories count and you can be sure that I am not wasting any of my calories on bad tasting dessert because I just think it's simply not worth it. One local bakery that has not disappointed me so far is very near and dear my heart. Leo's Bakery and Deli in East Rochester always delivers and makes overwhelmingly delicious desserts that I never regret because they are that always very good.
