Patsy's Pastry Shop in East Somerville Is Closing to Make Way for Apartments

A pastry shop in East Somerville that has been in business for nearly 50 years is getting ready to shut its doors.

The Somerville Times is reporting that Patsy's Pastry Shop on Broadway will be closing down on May 4, with a new structure consisting of 19 apartment units taking its place. The article mentions that the new building will have space for a shop of some kind on the ground level, and that Patsy's has first crack at the space if they want it, but co-owner Sal Ferrigno indicates that while it is something they may consider, they have not made a definite decision on this, adding that "none of us have been on a vacation for a very long time."

Patsy's Pastry Shop, which first opened in 1968, has been known in part for its variety of cakes, pies, cookies, and pastries, including a number of Italian treats (cannoli, amaretto, anise cookies, almond biscotti, etc.).

The address for this soon-to-close pastry shop in East Somerville is: Patsy's Pastry Shop, 182 Broadway, Somerville, MA, 02145.
