Once Upon a Time in 1927.....

Joseph Zaro, our great grandfather, emigrated from Eastern Europe to New York City. He had big dreams, little means but full of boundless determination to succeed. Joseph opened the first bakery in the Bronx which soon became a neighborhood staple, well known for delicious baked goods and a family first experience.

In the 1950's, Joseph passed the business onto his sons, Phil and William. Enterprising young upstarts, they grew the business - and its reputation - throughout the New York area. In 1977,  they opened in Grand Central Terminal, which has become the flagship bakery and where we made a name for ourselves from our reliability and quality in the hustle and bustle of New York City. 

Now, in our 11th decade of operations, we continue to rely on old world recipes that have defined our family and business for four generations, making things from scratch, focusing first and foremost on craft and quality. From our family to yours, thank you for visiting our website and we hope you visit one of our bakeries to enjoy our treats!

Brian, Michael & Scott Zaro
