Original Ferrara Bakery - Chicago
Italian pastries, wedding cakes, cookies and pizzas feature at this historic Italian bakery. They also offer soup and sandwiches at lunchtime.
Salvatore Ferrara emigrated from Nola, Italy, to Chicago in 1900. Eight years later, he opened this pastry shop. Soon afterward, he and his two brothers-in-law launched the Ferrara Pan Candy Co. Both companies remain family owned and operated.
