13. Court Pastry Shop in Cobble Hill

Salvatore Zerilli was born on Henry Street in 1917. His parents passed away, and he and his sister were sent back to Sicily to live with relatives. When Salvatore was 15, his family in Brooklyn sent for him, and he began to work in his uncle’s bakery on Columbia Street. In 1948, Salvatore bought Court Pastry. Today, his two sons, Gasper and Vincent, own the shop, where family photos cover the walls. Court Pastry Shop is located at 198 Court Street in Cobble Hill. Cash only.
