Great Italian bakery in Cumberland, MD

In recent weeks,  we drove through  Cumberland, MD  twice and discovered a wonderful Italian bakery with all sorts of awesome  breads and pastries.  We did not know it when we walked in but a gentleman waiting his turn informed me that this place was famous for their pepperoni rolls.  We looked into the showcase and they looked wonderful. 
They are a lot different looking than the ones that I have seen in pictures  posted here on  Roadfood.  A customore, waiting his turn, advised us to get the ones that had mozzarella cheese and sauce in them  so that is what we did .  These rolls were very large.  One is enough for a meal for  anyone.  The bread part was just wonderful  and the inside consisted of  layers of  sandwich pepperoni  slices  and mozzarella cheese with a  bit of  spicy tomato sauce. 
We also purchased some  pastries  and a giant  cinnamon roll which we had the owner cut into  sections for us.  Our purchases made for a great  picnic on the grounds of  Frostburg University,  where a granddaughter was enrolling  in a basketball camp.
Upon returning  home, we stopped and  bought  sub rolls  and Italian bread.  Both were outstanding.  We returned there the following week  to  pick  her up from camp .  We had decided to buy enough for a picnic  supper  as we were going to head for  Florida after the  4:30 pick-up  and wanted to drive  240 miles to Beckley WV  so  thought this would be a great option  instead of taking time to stop for  a sit down meal in restaurant.  Again,  everything  was delicious.
I cannot recommend this bakery highly enough.  The sales room  looks more like  a mini  family museum  with all the photos, mementos, and newspaper clipping hanging all around...................I could have spent a hour there just looking and reading.  It is a mere  2 minute drive  from  1-68   and  a must stop for any Roadfooder  driving  through.

    Thanks for the report Greymo!  This place sounds wonderful.  I am on I-68 a couple times a year passing Cumberland and now I know where to stop next time through.  Don't think I have ever had pepperoni rolls with cheese and sauce inside.
