You know the feeling when you walk into a bakery and smell the sweet aroma of the cupcakes baking and the freshly baked brownies? If you enjoy that smell (which I don’t understand how you couldn’t) then you’re going to love this bakery Torta Fina. I think it is the best bakery on the planet. Torta Fina has been in Commack since 1999 at 11 Vanderbilt Pkwy., and they have a second store in Babylon (80 Deer Park Ave.).

I asked the manager at the Commack location, Helene, some questions about the bakery. I asked her how long Torta Fina has been around. “Almost 17 years,” she said. It has two owners, Tom DeStefano and Joe Campbell.

I asked her what her favorite item is and she said, “Mine is the cannoli cake.” After I interviewed her she let me try a linzer torte, which was so rich and so amazing! So if you need a treat go to the location nearest to you.
