I recently rediscovered an old bakery that my family used to go to back when I was a kid (about 30 years ago). The pastry is just as good as I remembered! And to makes things even better, the prices are incredibly low. If you are ever in the Cranston area and have a craving for pastry, I highly recommend stopping at Zaccagnini's Pastries at 701 Oaklawn Ave.
There's a decent article about the place on the Projo web site here.
