Sweets on the Hill

A trip to Presti's Bakery in Little Italy was such a great way to kick off the weekend. From the artichoke pizza to the Italian cheesecake, the evening was filled with great sweets and even better cappuccino.

In 1903 Rose and Charles Presti Sr. opened Presti’s Bakery. As the business grew so did their family. In 1918, Charles Presti Jr. was born. He worked at the bakery from a young age, learning the trade from his parents. The bakery moved location a number of times before settling into the heart of Cleveland’s Little Italy on Mayfield Rd. in 1943.

At this time, Presti’s Bakery remains an integral part of Cleveland’s Little Italy. Michael, is the pastry chef and the fourth generation working at the bakery. They still use only the freshest ingredients with no preservatives to produce fine quality baked goods. Still made by hand with the same recipes and techniques originally created by Rose Presti.

Next time you feel like a cannoli or gelato...head east to Presti's ( 12101 Mayfield Rd. Cleveland, OH 216.421.3060
