Cammareri Brothers, Moonstruck
If there's any place that's ever been prouder of its short brush with fame than Cammareri Bros—more commonly known as "the bakery from Moonstruck
"—we have yet to see it. Sadly, the original Cammareri Bros location on Sackett and Henry shuttered a while ago (the building now houses Maybelle's
), but they've since re-opened a cafe in Fort Greene, and continued making the same, unparalleled bread they've been baking since 1921, all while gleefully touting their association with the movie; their website has an entire section devoted solely to quotes from Moonstruck
. It seems to us that this level of resilience and oddly charming self-promotion should be rewarded.
