Description: Our Uncle Antonio Veniero came to New York City back in 1885 when he was just 16 years old. He worked in a candy factory downtown from our current location. After 3 years he was promoted to a manager and 6 years later he opened his new business at 342 East 11th Street (our current location) which he called A. Veniero Confections. He just served candies but his patrons wanted something to go with the sweets so he started to roast his own espresso (with six different beans) and then he eventually brought in master bakers from Italy and the rest is history. People have been coming to Veniero Pasticceria & caffe for many generations and we are so proud of Antonio Veniero's vision and we strive each and every day to make the freshest desserts, cookies, biscotti, Gelato and drinks. The secret is simple. Use the highest quality ingredients, the finest flavors,freshest fruits and never take any shortcuts. Please come experience the legend of Veniero's for yourself either in person or online. We promise you will feel the passion that Antonio felt when he first came here to America over 131 years ago. That dream is carried on by his great nephew and nieces along with a dedicated baking staff that has a work ethic like no other. Not many places can say that and we can promise you that we will continue to make sure we make the highest quality baked goods for you and your family for generations to come. From our family to your family we look forward to serving you. Ciao, The Veniero family.

Veniero's is one place that I would specifically go to twice or thrice a month to satisfy my craving for something sweet or to treat visiting out-of-town friends. I would mostly go for the blueberry cheesecake to take out and enjoy at home with my family. But they have lots and lots of cakes and pastries for all occasions to choose from, all of them worth the try. Depending on the time of day, the place can be crowded which only goes to prove how popular the place is. Finding a place to park close by may be a challenge, too. Chances are once you have tried their cakes and pastries you will keep coming back just like me.

The staff behind the counter are very friendly. The place still has an old-fashioned feel which is disappearing in NYC.
The traditional Italian cookies are delicious. I love the pignoli and hazelnut meringue cookies. The cannoli are delicious as are all the pastries I've tried there.

We got slices of 4 different cakes. They were all to die for. I think everything here must be great.

We stopped in here for dessert after lunch and they have a GREAT selection of pastries and cakes etc... We ordered three different things and each one of them was perfect! Why a 4 star instead of 5 star? There were only a handful of people in the bakery and it took them forever to get our order. They were friendly about it...just slow.

We got a mini NY cheesecake to take out! Make sure to ask for the mini, not a slice of the big one!
Get the mini cheesecake without berries or a base! It was fantastic - the best cheesecake ever!
