Italian Bakery Angelina Brings Traditional Treats To Midtown
The bakery opens on Eighth Ave opened Wednesday.
MIDTOWN, NY – Angelina Bakery, the artisanal treat store that claims to bake with recipes passed down by the matriarch of the owner’s Italian family, opened in Midtown Wednesday.
Its classic cookies and cakes are made from scratch in the store, letting out a sweet smell through its doors and attracting customers inside, forcing them to lock eyes on their array of Italian bread, pastries and picture-perfect desserts, owners said.
Menu options range from Cheese Focaccia, described by The New York Times as, “So nice, you’ll eat it twice,” to traditional must-try delights like the classic bomboloni (filled with Nutella or cream) and croissants. All items are hand-crafted in-house and made fresh daily by Italian pastry chefs.
A love letter from founder Tony and dedicated to his daughter, Angelina, is plastered on the wall and reads: “I watch you glow with excitement and awe as you play with flour, eggs and dough. You remind me of my grandma, Nonna Anna, a great baker who grew up in a pastry shop in Palermo, Italy”.
“I want to delight you with our family’s secret recipes and traditions. I promise to use only the freshest ingredients, as Nonna did, and give you only the absolute best in hopes of sharing with you my fondest memories.”
Angelina Bakery is located at 575 Eighth Avenue, between 38th and 39th streets.
