New York in the 1890s had almost everything, except for a place where an opera lover, after a night of Verdi or Puccini, could relax, play a Neapolitan card game called "scopa," and drink a cup or two of espresso. Enrico Scoppa and Antonio Ferrara opened a cafe called Caffé A. Ferrara. Caruso thought the coffee marvelous but especially loved the cookies and cakes.

At the beginning of the 1929 Great Depression, times were tough and in order to make sure there was very little waste, Ferrara's Bakery began to bake two, three and sometimes four times a day, small batches of cookies and cakes. These difficult circumstances were a blessing in disguise. Because of the frequency with which they baked, Ferrara acquired a great reputation for freshness. This reputation enabled Caffé Ferrara to grow and prosper.

Ferrara's Bakery has been open since 1892 and still in the ownership of the same family. It has been handed down from male relative to male relative throughout the generations and now operating by the 5th generation.
