Bella Palermo Pastry Shop, located at 541 Boulevard (at the corner of S. 22nd Street), has been in Kenilworth for more than 16 years. Since that time, it has become a place to go for many who are looking to satisfy their sweet tooth. Bella Palermo is a local bakery that serves a variety of baked goods from cookies, breads, pastries, to made to order cakes, and more. According to the manager, Maria Costiera, some of their most popular items include custard cups, tres leches, tiramisu, bread… “really everything”. Customers can come in to get their orders via takeout during the pandemic. They were closed for a few weeks but opened up again on May 1. “It has been a very emotional process,” said Costiera. “We have personal things we are dealing with, and we want our customers to stay healthy. It is heartbreaking to know there are customers we will no longer see. We opened back up to try to bring some normalcy and familiarity back. I have been here in Kenilworth for 13 years and I love this town.”
