Boogie Down Bites: Delillo Pastry Shop

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

A Bronx pastry shop has been filling cannolis for nearly 100 years.

Delillo Pastry Shop on 187th Street serves up Baba, a rum filled sponge cake, Pignoli cookies and an abundance of cakes.

The current owners Lou and Sal are now in their 80s, and say they took over the business in 1984, but it’s retained the same name and recipes since 1925.

Both still come in every morning to prep the pastries, and Lou's nephew helps run the business.

The old-style Italian pastry shop has been preparing Sfingi, a pastry dedicated to the celebration of St. Joseph's Day, which is coming up in March.
