Circo's Pastry Shop is a family-owned business that was founded in 1945.

This Bushwick #bakery specializes in #Italian 🇮🇹 pastries and cakes 🍰 and their most popular item according to the second-generation owner Anthony Pierdipino is their "Cannoli a la Siciliana". Everything they sell is made by hand, on premises. In addition to their delicious pastries, we love their #vintage #neonsign that was recently restored (as seen in this photo). When we originally photographed the #storefront in 2004 for our book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York" their #neon sign with its unique #font and #script lettering was covered with wire mesh for protection reasons. A full interview with the 2nd -generation owner appears in our book too.
