Ferrara Bakery has held a prominent location in Little Italy since the current owners' great grandparents first brought their cannolis and gelato to the neighborhood in 1892. In those days, the neighborhood flocked there to sip coffee and play a Neapolitan card game called scopa. Keeping to tradition as the years passed up through today, the Ferraras have found one of the secrets of success is mixing and baking small batches several times a day so customers could always enjoy a fresh-baked pastry any time of the day.
More than 120 years later, the fifth generation of the Ferrara family runs the bakery and café, luring patrons in with the smell of fresh espresso and European baked goods whose traditions span parts of three centuries. They showcase a variety of Southern Italian pastries, including cannoli, sfogiatella, fresh made gelato and many other great pastries and cookies. They've also recently added a Brunch menu, available everyday, with favorites such as panettone French Toast, panini made-to-order finished with zucchini fries, and breakfast pizzas that are served until 3 p.m. The cafe also boasts a full bar, where guests can knock back innovative drinks such as the house-favorite Tiramisu martini and Cappuccino with Bailey's—along with Italian classics such as Prosecco, Sambuca, and Limoncello.
