Vesuvio is for sale, according to a Craigslist ad that has a picture to prove its legitimacy: “Great Bakery - cafe or retail shop, $5,500 per month, 400 sq ft, plus 1,000 sf basement, two 400 sf coal bread ovens vented through chimneys, $140k key money.” Those weepy tourists who pined for bread while the shop was closed for oven maintenance don’t seem so silly now that locals won’t get another crusty bite. We can’t help but wonder if those ovens ever got fixed. [Craigslist via Eater]
