About Us

Gourmet Bake Shop opened its doors on October 7th 1991.  Joe and Judy Gifoli purchased the bakery from Saccente and Sons, who operated the business for the prior 6 years. But actually the bakery originally had been established when the property was built in the 1940’s, and had several prior owners since then. The business has evolved and grown over the years, with Joe gradually building and improving the cake business. The one thing that has not changed over the years is the bakery's commitment to providing the best quality baked goods possible, at reasonable prices.

The bakery is a strong supporter of the community and donates product to various religious groups and civic associations throughout the year. The bakery also has a few wholesale accounts, but the bulk of the business is retail. The bakery is a member of the New Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce.

We completed a major expansion and renovation to the bakery in October of 2013. We are looking forward to many more years of serving the New Hyde Park community.
