The La Guli Bakery in Astoria (Queens NY)
Seventy years ago Paolo Notaro opened up this little bakery after immigrating to Queens from Palermo, Italy. Since then almost nothing has changed - the storefront, interior woodwork, shelves and terrazzo floor are just the way Paolo designed it. Today the store is run by Paolo's son, Rosario and his granddaughter Maria, who carry on the family tradition by making exquisite pastries from scratch every day.
Their ovens run morning, noon and night so that they can always offer fresh baked goods to the community. Over the years, the store has grown from its humble beginnings to the leading supplier of baked goods for many restaurants and businesses in the Tri-State area. Whether its a homemade cannoli, freshly baked cookie - or one of their amazing cakes, you can't go wrong with 70 years of Italian experience!
