Roma’s Bakery US Map & Phone & Address
201 Somerville Ave. Somerville;(617)776-0869 Roma’s bakes bread for supermarkets all over the area. Buying at the bakery couldn’t be simpler; nearly everything is priced at $1.25 large, round soft loaves, sliced scali bread, whole-grain loaves, or a bag of a half-dozen sandwich rolls. You can only save a bit over the stores, but the best part is that after three o’clock you can get the bread straight out of the oven.
So hot it’ll burn your hand, says Mr. Roma. This continues until about 9 P.M. daily; Saturdays ’til 5.
Up the avenue toward Union Square is a larger, similar establishment, La Ronga Bakery, at 599 Somerville Avenue; telephone (617) 625-8600. They also distribute to area markets, but again, you can get it fresh from the source. A loaf of sliced scali bread is $1.24. They sell day-old bread too, like three baguettes for a dollar; and they also bake up fresh, hot calzones about the size of a football for $2.50, filled with spinach, mushrooms, or broccoli and cheese. Open daily from 7 A M. to 8 p.M.
