Baklava croissant at Gjusta

You might miss Gjusta if you don’t know what you’re looking for. The Venice bakery operates out of a nondescript warehouse; step inside and you’ll find a long, narrow corridor with glass cases of sweet and savory treats on the left, a working bakery behind it. On the sweet side, slices of fruit are folded into sugar-glazed dough for a morning indulgence; a banana chocolate tart, while pricey, is worth a post-lunch splurge. On the savory side, sandwiches and salads make for an ideal lunch spot. Gjusta serves as a sort-of deli, too, where you can pick up cuts of meat and fish to go. Coffee, tea and a few other drinks are offered, but we recommend a refreshing limeade with mint, to be enjoyed on one of the benches or crates in the courtyard outside—sunshine and laid-back vibes guaranteed.

5 stars for quality, 4 stars for price. The perfect spot to grab lunch on the weekends or a pre-work weekday breakfast. It can get a little overwhelming when it's crowded and the process isn't intuitive, but it's all worth it. Get something that involves bread and a housemade limeade.

So tasty! I went for dinner on a weekday and it was not crowded at all. I got served right away and had a custom sandwich that was yummy!  There were some things on the menu that they didn't have, and somethings not on the menu that they did have, which was a little confusing. But I was happy to settle in at the bar area and enjoy my sandwich and latte! 


As soon as I walked in, I knew I found my new favorite spot in town. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and the food was AMAZING. I ordered the Bialy Egg Sandwich, Pomegranate Pear Shrub, side of the purple cauliflower and a chocolate chip cookie and it did not disappoint. Not only instagram worthy but I told all my friends that hadn't been. A little on the pricy side but I can't wait to go back!

Gjusta, I'm over you. We're done. I gave you a chance when you first opened, despite the $8 — EIGHT DOLLARS — I paid for a small chocolate tart, and the fact that I ate it, hunched over, on a milk crate outside because there's no seating. Whatever, it's a quirk, you want it to be super casual, I get it. Then I came back and the counter had expanded to like, FIVE registers, but you could order at any one - because you're super casual! - as long as you had pulled a number from some magical machine that didn't seem to be present (and when I asked where it was, one of the employees behind the counter waved in a vague direction and said I could "find it over there"). When I finally got up to one of the thousand registers because no one was ordering anything, despite everyone hovering around the area, I was told I had to wait for my number to be called before I bought a $17 sandwich. Even though a number had not been called for the past three or four minutes. Bye.
