12. Circo’s Pastry Shop in Bushwick

The Circo family opened the original pastry shop in 1945. It was taken over by Nino Pierdpino and his two sons, both graduates of the Culinary Institute of America, and this brought with it a broader range of products. Italian and French pastries, cakes, and cookies can be found at Circo’s Pastry Shop, located at 312 Knickerbocker Avenue, Brooklyn.
