Have your Cake and Eat it Too!

Looking to satisfy your inner sweet tooth this weekend?  Check out a local Norwood legend; Guarino’s Pastry Shop, located just off of Washington Street in downtown Norwood! From cookies to cannoli’s, cakes to hand crafted chocolate sweets, freshly baked breads to carb-conscious wraps, Guarino’s has it all.

Giuseppe and Gloria Guarino opened the pastry shop in 1975. The family, originally from Naples, Italy, immigrated to South Boston before moving to Norwood and opening their doors. Originally, Giuseppe got his start at a bakery in the North End of Boston. Here, he learned to create authentic Italian flavor by blending quality ingredients with his own authentic Italian recipes. The Guarino’s son, Michael, has worked hard to preserve his family’s legacy by offering an authentic Italian bakery experience to the Norwood community and loyal customers for over 30 years.

Guarino’s specializes in famous rum and specialty cakes, Italian pastries, Italian breads and rolls, varieties of Italian and American cookies, Cannolis, and Tiramisu. There are plenty of options! On weekends and holidays you can find lines upon lines of customers waiting to grab their holiday sweet treat boxes and breads. Our Residents love Guarino’s! You can often find a box of sweet treats located in our clubhouse by our coffee and espresso machine. Please visit the below website to check out a full Guarino menu.


Of course, once you have indulged in one of these famous cannolis, you’re going to want to burn off those extra calories! Lucky for you, One Upland offers a beautiful resident fitness center, outfitted with top of the line equipment. If you’re more of an outdoorsy person, we boast miles of trails for walking, jogging and biking, so there is no reason why you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
