Lost, but not forgotten…Morrone’s Bakery.

Rosa morroneLost, but not forgotten…Morrone’s Bakery.

Morrone Bakery, once located at 324 East 116th Street, sold Italian, French and Semolina bread. Gabriele and Rosa Morrone opened the bakery in 1956 and until closing day,  they religiously made authentic hand-made breads. This tiny bakery offered a homely, welcoming atmosphere, with Rosa Morrone  wrapping and selling the breads herself.  Long gone…but never forgotten!
