Dominicks-Bakery-Staten Island-New Dorp

Dominick’s Bakery and Cafe
For breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or just an afternoon snack, Dominick’s is a neighborhood favorite. Come to satisfy your sweet tooth, or send pastries to far-flung friends with their Staten Island–famous, trademarked “Cannoli-gram.” It isn’t all sweets and treats at Dominick’s, though: You can also satisfy your cravings for Italian bread, sandwiches and meatloaf.


New Dorp-Piece A Cake-Staten Island

It’s not all desserts at this bakery started by pastry chef James Carrozza, which offers a small casual dining menu in addition to its selection of pastries, cookies, and gelato. If you decide to stick to sweets, though, the iconic construction worker hanging outside the shop won’t judge you for indulging in that extra piece of chocolate mousse cake.
