5. Caputo’s Bake Shop, Carroll Gardens (1904)

Caputo's Bake Shop-Court Street-Carroll Gardens-Brooklyn-NYC

This Court Street staple has been open since 1904 and is part of a string of Italian-American owned shops along this stretch of Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens. Here you can find cheese made by the deli itself, fresh baguettes, ciabatta sandwiches, and cured meats. Lots of sugary competition in our City, and these three shops have truly withstood the test of time.  You can find each on Facebook just in time for National Eat Dessert First Day, August 26th.
