Bolo Bakery & Cafe is owned and operated by
Portuguese immigrants, Isabel and Antonio Abrantes.
Coming from a tiny village in Portugal, both owners
decided to start a life in the United States, not knowing what to do or how it would turn out. The only thing certain was that they would work hard to support there growing family. Shortly after coming to the s tates to settle down, Antonio landed a job in Bloomfield, Connecticut, at what was then called “Copaco Market”. Working for years and years as a baker in there bakery department, eventually mustering up the financial resources and courage to open a place of his own.
His next venture took him to a small rental in the middle of
Hartford, Connecticut. There in 1984 he began his bakery,
Abrantes Bakery and Pastry Shop, and it stood there many
years until it began to outgrow the space. The next step was
to find a a new space, that new space was on Park Street in
Hartford, Connecticut. The business quadrupled in business,
producing Portuguese and Italian breads and pastries in there
retail space in that same location and in grocery stores, delis, restaurants, and cafes.
With the help of there son, Antonio Abrantes, a professionally trained pastry chef, they have decided on a new venture called Bolo Bakery & Cafe. Offering the same quality of products as the Abrantes Bakery and Pastry Shop, but with a modern twist and serving not only sweets items but savory items, with our brand new commercial kitchen. Celebrating over 25 years of continued success in the bakery and food industry, the Abrantes family, are a true definition of big dreams and goals, and even bigger prosperous success. Experience our new venture and let us satisfy both your culinary and pastry cravings...
