Neri’s Bakery has been a part of Port Chester for over a century.  It first opened in 1910 by Paul Anthony Neri who first came to Port Chester after migrating here from Reggio Calabria, Italy.  Neri’s Bakery is a family business that is now 104 years old and going strong.


Neri’s Bakery first opened up on Beech Street in Port Chester, then moved to Wilkins Avenue and finally to Pearl Street where it is currently located. Neri’s sells both wholesale and retail.


“We have grown in our retail store greatly. Holidays are extremely packed with lines out the door and down the block,” said Brett Neri, Human Resources/Operations/SQF Practitioner.


Neri’s Bakery retail store sells all freshly baked Italian goods. Everything is made with real ingredients, no artificial preservatives, real eggs, and real milk.


Neri’s wholesale division has two components; one being the Bagel division and the second division are the Breads. In the Bagel division, the bagels are the specialty item and in the Breads, the rolls are the specialty item.


On the retail end, for sweet items, the pastries, and cannoli’s are top sellers, and to round off the sweets the Tres Leches Cake, which is made with three types of milk is another top choice of customers.

Love their baked goods … the best around. And the Neri's are the most generous givers to the PC community. Top shelf, classy act.

Prefer Cassone's bread and rolls. Cerbone's does a nice onion rye and a good Italian loaf as well. I love Port Chester!

I grew up with Neri's Rolls! When my Family and I moved to Delaware,that was the 2 best thing that i missed most of all! 1 is my Grandchildren,2nd is Neri's. Well, when i come to Town i make sure to stop and pick Rolls & Bread so i can take home to Family to enjoy ! Also, when i go to My Sisters House in Miami,Fla. i have to Buy 5 Dozens Rolls & some Garlic Bread. She says the Rolls and Cuban Bread are no where as great tasting in Mia.,Fla.as where , Neri's Bread and Rolls brings her to her Childhood memories , Its a little Taste of Home for Her, when i come to visit her Twice a Year, Now her Friends and Co-Workers say it must be the Water from N.Y. She is Hoping and Wishing that they would open a Retail Store in Miami,and Hoping that it would Taste the same as in N.Y.
