WATCH: This Bronx Bakery Has Been Making Bread For Over 100 Years

Tucked away on Arthur Avenue in The Bronx, New York City’s REAL Little Italy, is Madonia Bakery.

This Bronx Italian institution has been baking bread for over a century, including their signature olive bread using the same recipe and techniques as when they started back in 1918 when Mario Madonia arrived from Sicily.

Madonia Bakery, baking delicious breads in The Bronx for over 100 years.

One of their most famous breads is none other than the olive loaf which people line up for especially during the holidays. You’d understand why people flock to their bakery if you had some of their delicious breads before.

Take a look at the video below on this amazing Bronx business and family! Now I feel like getting on my bike and picking up a loaf or two!
