Time Out says

Having operated for over 125 years, this cafe really is a slice of NYC history

Between 1876 and 1924, millions of Italians immigrated to America. Among them was a man called Antonio Veniero, who settled in New York City and opened his own cafe in 1894. It's here that he sold candy, espresso, and biscotti – all homemade, naturally.

Over the years, the Veniero family has placed greater focus on cakes and expanded the premises, but the Veniero's traditional essence remains. Yes, you can still grab a great cup of Joe and freshly baked biscotti here. But you really should allow yourself to be lured in by gorgeous cakes, cannoli, and deliciously creamy deep-dish cheesecake behind the counter.

Then pull up a chair at one of the charming wooden tables and savor your purchase while marveling at the Neapolitan glass ceiling and Italian renaissance art decorating the walls. And if it's so good that you simply cannot wait to return, you can order Veniero’s online with nationwide shipping. Who says you can't have a cannoli kit to yourself?

Having just past its 129th Year Anniversary, this famous landmark was established in 1894 by its founder, Antonio Veniero. When he operated his establishment, it was a pool emporium and caffe where he served his baked products to his customers. Later, the demand for his Italian pastries and cakes won him awards in Rome, Bolognia, and at the New York World’s Fair.

Upon entering the pastry shop, you are greeted by a wonderful display of traditional and regional Italian confections, a vast variety of large an miniature pastries, and assortments of hand-made Italian butter cookies. Take in the aroma of the freshly baked biscotti (Italian biscuits) as well as the traditional cheese cakes and specialty cakes. A full 40 feet of ecstasy for the dessert lover!
