Business Description

This family owned and operated bakery has been has been a landmark feature of the Downtown Middletown, NY scene for over thirty-two years. Its storefront space offers an array of authentic Italian, German and Jewish baked goods. Daily overnight delivery routes to restaurants and delicatessens throughout the Hudson Valley allow customers at a distance to enjoy this bakery's delicious products while frequenting their favorite local spots. The storefront is busiest on Sunday mornings and during the holidays as customers travel from all over the Hudson Valley Region to pick up their favorite baked goods to enjoy and share with family and friends.

From a variety of bread types to its infamous assortment of butter cookies, everything offered at this bakery is made on-site and baked fresh every day (and night!) with the finest ingredients.

The bakery is owned and operated under a partnership structure, with the owners being an integral part of the 24 hour running of the operations. The owners have worked extremely hard to preserve the bakery's reputation of delivering family style service and offering the freshest and highest quality baked products available in the Hudson Valley Region. This establishment has always been a reliable presence, as the business has only been closed twice since operating under the partners in 1986.
