The Caruso Family has been a part of our family for many years. Their baked goods are second to none. Everything is made there by wonderful skilled bakers. Special orders are always treated carefully. Wedding cakes are spectacular.

I always buy my rum cake and cannolli cake from Caruso's they have the best. It's been under the same ownership for 50 years. Pastries are always fresh and delicious. You can't go wrong.
