Regina Russell

Gil Robinson

Stopped to order a wedding cake. The owner, Anthony, was very pleasant and easy to work with. All of the selections look and smell delicious. Highly recommended!

Mari Burgos

Love their professionalism towards their clientele, great prices and what can I say about their Cakes, Cookies & Pastries "They are Delicious"!!!

Sha Sha

I actually found this place using a Google search and chose them to make my son's 1st birthday cake. I sent them a picture of what I wanted the cake to look like, tweaked a few details to personalize it and it came out exactly as I envisioned. I was so happy! Plus, the price was very reasonable. Win/win! If I ever need a cake done for another occasion, I would definitely choose this place.

Delicious pastries.

Denise Myers

My parents just received your cookies which I sent them for their 50th wedding anniversary.. They both say they are phenomenal, exactly how they were 50+ years ago. I had no idea your bakery is the same one they use to go to over 50 years ago. When my parents opened the box, the smell of the cookies took them back to their teen years. They use to get lemon ice, gelati, breads and pastries at your bakery. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was for them to take me on a stroll down memory lane. Thank you so much for the delicious cookies! Excellent!

Coral reyes

The cookies are great . I order a fondant strawberry-shortcake mickey Mouse 1st year birthday cake and it looked great i was pleased with the way it looked how ever they didn't add some of the things I told them to like his name or the year on the cake or whatever. It was a little pricey for them not to do it how I asked. Another thing it didn't taste as good as it looked. I recommend the cookies from this place are probably the best I've tasted so far.

ivan rodriguez

good cakes love the cookies mmm

David Morgan

Wonderful selection. Happy to wrap the purchases.

Charles Albanese

I love the fig cookies- Great old school taste that you can't find just anywhere. The Cannollis are authentic-melt in your mouth good. They even provide the cannolli cream separate from the shells to guarantee freshness. I've ordered many speciality cakes- a basketball cake was a big hit as looked like the real thing. No need to go to Jersey for cool cakes. Cake Boss type of cakes right in Brooklyn. Like the huge selection of cookies too.

Jose the original Toy hunter

Have a variety of cakes and pastry


Love your cookies especially the savoiardi. I tried to make them but not the same end result. Lol. My Grandparents lived on Hart St. and used to buy them all the time and I still order on the holidays. I live way out East on Long Island. The Best!

Lataisha Moore

Awesome cake and pastry shop. Good price, if you want to have a cake custom made, call ahead. Cakes are delicious and service is AWESOME.

Melissa Rose Silva

Requested a quote for a specialty custom graduation cake in the shape of a book with a cap and diploma on top. Got a call the same day from a very polite and professional gentleman named Anthony. Confirmed the colors, school logo, design and date I needed it by as well as adding a tower of 30 cupcakes to the order. My schedule made it difficult to physically make it into the store but they were very accommodating, they took my payment over the phone as well as delivered the cake and cupcakes on the date I needed. The cake was beautiful, got so many compliments as everyone was very impressed. The cupcakes were great too. The cake & cupcakes didn't just look great but tasted delicious as well. We were all blown away. The size was also great, it served almost 50 people, and still had some left over even after people had seconds. Definitely worth the price. I couldn't have been happier and will definitely make a point to stop by the shop to try some of their other pastries. Thank you Circo's!

Paul Fiteni

This was our Wedding Cake. Beautiful and Delicious! We still get compliments on it, from our guests! We've already placed an order for another 'specialty cake' for a Family Celebration. Thanks Anthony! Bravo!

Rose Gunder

Old style bakery. Great cannolis

Denise Padilla

I love their cheesecakes.

Macho Rodriguez

always fresh best bakery in New York.

Fenella Leighton

I sent Anthony a picture of a cake I wanted for my daughters 30th birthday and his copy was even better than the original. It looked fantastic and tasted delicious. Everyone commented on how great it was!

DJ Dillinger

Best pastry shop in the city. hands down.

Abel Antonio

I ordered a cake over the phone for my nephew's baptism, I asked for 150 people and it was a complete rip-off. These people have no shame. The cost of the cake plus delivery was almost $800, that's right $800 for a very tiny cake. Not worth it, and they're a fraud.

Jerry Cruz

One of the best bakerys around

Mike Eagleeye Schneider

Awesome place to get the greatest Italian pastries Very friendly staff family-owned

Joseph Brooks

Best Around for years!

Kristen B

I ordered a Halloween themed birthday cake for my daughter. The cake was above and beyond what I expected. The girls that took my order were extremely helpful, they knew their products very well. Picking up the cake was well a piece of cake, I was in and out of the bakery in five minutes. They also have a wonderful selection of pastries and great coffee. I highly recommend trying the Holy Cannoli doughnut, it's a doughnut stuffed with Cannoli cream and topped with bits of Cannoli, oh so rich and decadent and not too sweet.

grace barile

All the help were very friendly & patient with me couldn't decide what I wanted. Everything is so so good.


My cake was bad in flavor and decoration

I ordered a cake from Circo's Pastry Shop for a surprise birthday party. It was a custom made PlayStation cake. It was made to perfection! The staff was very professional, creative and worked so hard to achieve what I wanted. The cake was above my expectations and I'm so thankful for them. Thank you once again for your hard work and dedication to making sure your customers are more than satisfied.

Moi L

I ordered a batman theme cake from Circo's Bakery for my sons 6th birthday and I am really happy with my puchase. Thank you!

Heather Valentin

Very basic pastries nothing wow like I expected reading these reviews

Dane Lonsdale

Tasty cakes and pastries. Ordered a big strawberry cake for a friends bday. It was delicious.

Jennifer Giraud

I ordered an Elmo cake from their website.. When I went to pick it up.. they took it upon themselves to make a completely different design.. not only that it was bumpy and very sloppy.. Anthony told me to pic another picture so I did.. the cake came out all faded.. he then blamed Google image for the picture quality (which he could have said prior to putting it in the cake) after an hour of picking up this cake.. I had to settle for a different sesame picture on my son's cake.. when I said that my time and not getting what I want should be compensated with money off or some cookies for my some party Anthony whined about the money wasted on printing the awful pictures.. will never go there again!!!!

Tommasa Betancourt

Jose R Lopez

I really like and enjoy this bakery. My wife and I got our wedding cake made here and this has been a hit with us ever since. If we happen to be passing by here, it's a must stop for us. We like the cannoli so much that we mostly stop here just for that. That's our reason to stop there and end up picking a lot more pastries/goodies. This place come highly recommend for any special occasion/event. Try it, believe me you would not regret it. Oh yeah, ask for the owner because he one of the nicest people you'll talk too.

Brent Timm

The canolli donut changed my life! This place is heaven.

Tiffany Shiv

In love with this place! The drinks are so pretty and taste amazing as well. I got lavender and i could definitely taste the lavender without it being overbearing or tasting like perfume. I also love how they use real flowers, it just makes you feel so pretty and classy drinking your coffee LOL. Would love to come again! The lady who worked there was also super nice~ service was A.

Bryce Artstew

You'll find great baked goods here. The staff is friendly and can help with any questions you might have. It's easy to find and reminds me of a bakery get on another era. If you live near by take a stop by. If you're wanting to check out bakeries around the city this is one to stop at.

Maria Vitale Graziano

The bestest

Kimberly Negroni

So I ordered 3leches cake 3 diff times. The first&second time they put a vanilla cream in the inside which killed the cake. The third time they made it tiny but charged me 38$ which is the most I've ever been charged for a trea leche cake. Never again

myles lc

Kiwi/Aussie view: Great cake shop. Lots of variety. The croissant had a sugary glaze on it which was OK but not original.

Liz santiago

WONDERFUL customer service, A Five Star Italian Bakery. Everything tastes Gr8!!

Stafford Velasquez

Ordered a cake for my Fiancé and it was perfect !!!!! Exactly like the image I provided them. In addition, it was delicious so I would definitely recommend if you're thinking purchasing a cake from them.

A Google User

Trechia Stewart

Perfect unicorn

Paul Pennolino

This place is one of a kind Old time authentic italian pastry cakes and cookies and more The best fig cookies in New York Great people Great service Don't go there Hungry

Chris Acosta

Great institution that has endured just about every conceivable test of time in the neighborhood. Get the signature cannoli filled birthday cake

Gabrielle Richardson

Great pastries, good iced coffee. Got 3 pastries and two iced coffees for the same price of 2 grande coffees at starbucks. Pastries are fresh and delicious.

Ken Martinez

Best canolis in North Brooklyn!

Frank Zolcinski Jr.

Unbelievable old world Italian pastry shop! Brooklyn's Finest! My wife and I met Sal what a good guy! We found our new spot.

Kelly Clark

The cookies were absolutely delicious...though, in shipping about a 1/3 were pieces and crumbs. I guess, that's assumed risk for ordering online. Though, Circo might consider a tin instead of a platter for longer distance orders.

John Restaino

Old school Italian flavor! !!! The best!

Paul Dilorenzo

Went back here after 40 years. My grandmother used to take me there. Awesome place. Hope it doesnt get gentrified out of business

ella pasquariello

AMAZING !!!! FIVE PLUS STARS. Everything they described and more. Ordered the Cohiba Cigar Cake for milestone birthday. WAS THE HIT OF THE PARTY. Anthony and staff are beyond helpful, gracious and patient. And the cake itself was absolutely delicious. I highly highly recommend this bake shop and I will happily use them again. Quality establishment ! BRAVO CIRCO Ella P.


What an amazing bakery! They bailed me out at a last minute order for my toddlers birthday cake. The original bakery I ordered from never made my cake. I called circo’s bakery the same day of my daughters birthday and they made my cake within 3 hours. I was so grateful. Love you circo’s bakery.

Thea P.

This Pastry Shop doesn't want to give an extra box. I spend $120 for the cake for my daughter's b-day and I've asked an extra box. Guess what they said they're not allow to give the customer an extra box. What kind of box do you have, GOLD?? I will certainly not come here again. Very disrespectful.

jaime marquez

The best cake i ever try

angel torres

Beautiful place to go and eat pastries

Lisa Jacques

I ordered online to have shipped to NC. I was concerned because shipping costs were high, as I was buying pastries. Spoke with Anthony and he tried to convince me to buy cookies instead, to keep the cost down. They have no control of shipping costs. WELL, it was well worth it. Everything arrived perfectly, cannoli shells were not cracked. My mother-in-law was so ecstatic with NY pastries. She said it was the best she ever had, former New Yorker.


The cake are soooooo Amazing!! But the cherry' s taste like a wet raisin.

Mark T

My uncle lived on hart st when I was a kid and we would stop in the bakery every time we would visit loved it and the smell been there over 40 years

Michael Piecora

Had them make a cupcake cross for my daughters baptism and they were phenomenal. The butter cream frosting is amazing. Can't wait to have them make her 1st birthday cake. Thanks Circo

Diana Salas

Pastrys are delicious..

Dorothy Rusignuolo

I only received five cannoli shells and a few crumbs of the sixth. Every thing was packaged perfectly and all the pastry was delicious. Thank you for delivery service. It is heaven to be able to have Italian pastry again.

Ralph Fernandez

Very courteous, perfessional and patient. Large selection. Wonderful treats.

Cecile Ayala

I pre-ordered, and the delivery came earlier than expected. I was happy to recieve my order, and the driver was courteous. I recieved a free gift, and enjoyed it all. I ordered each flavor of the macaroons and chocolate chip cookies to treat myself. The cookie was huge! Lol, it was a delight. Thanks, I loved it!

D Rotela

Cookies are awesome, so fresh and delicious. My mother moved to Florida and I still order her cookies from Circo's because there are no authentic Italian cookies like these in Sarasota. Great bakery with great people.

Julie Garcia

Love this place! Always a go-to when you need to satisfy a sweet-tooth!

Marie Walsh

Just as I remember as a kid. They were packed perfectly, all intact. We are now 6 generations of enjoying the savioardi cookie. It is wonderful that I can share with my grandchild. There is nothing like a great Brooklyn bakery. Thank you

Evelyn Sanchez

Customers since 1973

Marietta Cobb

I received my order and was very impressed by the presentation. The cookies were so delicious. I bought the tray for some local teachers. I'm can't wait to hear them singing your praises. I will be contacting you again in the future. Thank you for a great product. You're be best. May God bless you and your staff with continued good health, prosperity and inner peace. Happy New Year!!!!

theresa Porto

The best bakery ever Love trying something new every time I go


They are sooooo good. I get my cakes from them all the time.

Sylvia I

I order my son's B-day cake off of Grubhub, i use to order cakes for Circo Yrs ago, and it use to be absolutely delicious, but the order i placed for February 11, was a mistake, maybe i shoulda have went to the bakery, in placed my order, cake was hard and didnt taste fresh too much strawberry filling and not enough of the vanilla cluster, the frosting had no taste at all..It shouldn't matter where the order was placed, for the price i paid it definitely wasn't worth it!!The Cake Tasted Horrible!!

Charles A LaMatto

One of the best pastry shops and cake makers in the five boroughs!

vor gh gor mr awesome

Cakes,cookies,ice cream,breads and more.There tasty treats are delicious.

Meli R.

Great cakes...but avoid the pastries

michael mannino

This is the best Italian Bakery on the planet. We have nothing like this in Central Florida. I lived in New York and my whole family were from Brooklyn.We miss our bakeries. Ordered online. The items were fresh, packed with care and fully in tacked. Delivery was on time. The cookies were to die for. 8 lb of them were gone in no time. Will surprise a lot of people this holiday season. Thank You to the crew at Circo's. Great job. Just put another order in.

Joseph J Vadapalas

Simply a very good Italian bakery

Daphne Talbot

We moved away from NY and miss the Italian baked goods. Then I found Circo's ships. They ship baked goods better than anyone I've ordered from so their amazing cookies arrived as tasty as ever. Perfectly made and utterly delicious.

Elana Rambow

They have so much to pick from and is all amazing! Apple turnover was my favorite! Not too sweet and baked to perfection. They were patient and let me take my time. Definitely recommend.

Alejandro Cunalata

Love the coffee and pastreies

Joseph Lanzarotta

Excellent bakery and pastry shop. Love it

Emmanuel Aguilar

The real deal old school NYC


I was like "oh no" the UPS guy gave me the box upside down!!!! Opened the box and it was like "The bubble factory" hit the box. Not one broken cookie in the box. It came so beautiful and delicious looking I was affraid to open the wrapping. But, that didn't last. Late at night I just hadda do it. They were so good and it will definitely become a tradition not only at Christmas but any other time of the year when I just need some great cookies and more. Thanks Rocco and Anthony

Beau Glover

Best cannolies

Joseph Fabilli

I come from Glen Head, NY to get the absolute best Boston Creme and Peanut Butter & Jelly donuts. A truly great cannoli shell and filling...Can't go wrong with anything there. Definetely worth the trip!

Timothy Lopez

The family and I always pick up something here for birthdays and special occasions. I love Circo's. A+++

Vinny Giammarino

Went there when I was a kid still go there for the best cakes,cookies and pastry.

Norrie Keane

Dear Anthony, Liz and all at Circo Pastry Shop, thank you so much for today’s Cigar cake (De Marino Reserva). It looked amazing and our board members and all the staff in the office were stunned. I'm told it tasted amazing too (unfortunately, being in Ireland I never got any). You really captured the essence of what was required to perfection, and all that done over emails and phone conversations from Ireland, not to mention the fact that it was at very short notic! Thank you so much for producing a perfect gift and congratulations to all involved in making this fabulous cake. With kind regars, Norrie Keane, Rivada Networks, Ireland

Melissa Soto

Surpassed my expectations! Job well done Circo!

Michael McDonald Jr.

Tiffany Rodriguez

Did a great job on my son's cakes. Love this bakery

Adrian Bordoni

One of the last places from the old Italian Bushwick, pastries are still delicious, staff is friendly...try the chocolate mousse!

Nanchi Corrales

The bakery is clean I went to pick up the cake about a half an hour early and it was done it wasn't done perfect I mean there was obviously some spots that I can see that could have been better but overall it was okay the prices are moderate but you know it's been there for a long time and hopefully the cake taste great
