Although this bakery is two blocks from my house It is the only bakery I would use. They make a great Napleon birthday cake that I have to pick up for everyone in the office for their birthdays and now it has been extended to their families and office birthdays. I have never in all the years going to this bakery (even when it was on Manor Rd) ever found the staff rude or unwilling to help even when they are extremely busy. I have never felt rushed. They had once in all these years (30) messed up a birthday cake order (my daughter) and apologized and tried to correct. If only the odds for every business I deal with were that great I would be a less stressed worker.
Sorry for the person who seems so bitter they cannot move beyond a bad situation that they had all their friends write a bad review.
You can trust me when I say I have not had a bad cake, or a complaint in years.

WONDERFUL!!!!!!! Amazing pastries, genuine counter girls, the cakes are beautiful and delicious! Alfonso's is an awesome bakery! Every time we come to Staten Island we have to stop by and get EVERYTHING! If you're in the mood for a tasty treat try their Fruit Tart, it is always fresh and my favorite!

Well I happen to work there myself and none of the pastries, cakes, donuts or buns are frozen. Everything is made fresh! How could they possibly make things on a Monday if it is closed on Monday's. To the woman who they forgot your "brother" and "best friends" wedding cake, it was a mistake and things are crazy there. It is no excuse but i'm sure you got a full refund. You pretty much blew up ever single page complaining about your friends cake. The girls working there actually do know a lot about the cakes, cakes are changed and there are always different ones. You should give the girls credit for helping you, it's not easy remembering every detail of a cake. Most jobs you have someone just standing there and ringing your items up, but working in a bakery requires a lot of effort and the girls are very sweet and talkative. Even when customers are completely rude the workers still treat them well!

The bakery is fantastic! I get everything from there. The italian bread special 2 for $2 is a good deal and they always have good specials throughout the week. Love that place!

This Pastry Shoppe is a one of a kind. Their Pastries are truly delicious and depict a true picture of Italy's fine desserts. If you ever want to experience authentic Italian desserts close to home Alfonso's Pastry Shoppe is a perfect choice.

My uncle just ordered me two pounds of rainbow cookies and one pound of pignolis for Christmas. They had to be shipped to me in Alaska, second day air, and never guarantees that anything will arrive in two days. The cookies were great, they held up nicely during shipping, were beautiful and fresh. If cookies can withstand being shipped all the way across the country, they're good.

Their cakes and cookies are very good. We try to limit buying from here to when we are invited over to friends and family otherwise we probably wouldn't be able to fit through the door that is how good their stuff is! There stuff is always fresh and tasty. The line can be long on the weekends but it is well worth the wait and doesn't take too long. Go check them out.

We always stop by Alfonso's for all our bakery needs from those incredibly addictive pastries to breads and birthday cakes and pies for those summer picnics. They have 3 locations on the Island but this is the original and best in my opinion. Love their doughnuts on Sunday mornings too!!!

PROS: amazing pastries
CONS: your waist wont like you

My daughter Adrienne worked at the Pastry Shoppe when she was in High School. They are the best on the island. Everything is fresh and so good. The owners take pride in the business and aim to please. Moved to Brooklyn now but still drive over the bridge to get cakes and pastry. Worth the trip. Just ordered my daughter's favorite Napoleon cake for her Birthday.

What a great pastry shoppe! The girls at the counter are VERY sweet and helpful! They do their job well and always wear a smile. Anthony and Vinny are great guys, they helped me pick out a wonderful engagement and later on my wedding cake. It was delicious and beautiful, definitely a crowd pleaser. To this day, people ask where i got the cake from! The pastries are always delicious and consistent. The bread is always fresh and wonderful! Their new pastry and bread special are brilliant and thoughtful to their customers. From once you walk in, you are taken over by the delicious smell and greetings from the girls! I recommend this bakery to anyone who is looking for a rich dessert, whether its pastries, cakes, bread, or even a cup of coffee is great! In front of the Victory store the sign says it all! They do have the World's Best Cannolli's!!!!!!!!!

My best friend's wedding was without a cake. Ordered from Alfonso's, the bride and groom went there over and over again for tastings and design discussions and finalizing and payment. Day of the wedding, the cake was a no-show. The hall manager tried to get an explanation on the phone, was put on hold, then hung up on. He drove to the bakery, and they shut the lights off and locked the door. These people RUINED the reception and don't deserve your business.

Do not shop there and certainly do not trust a special occasion to them!

Cons: failed to make a wedding cake!

We ordered A wedding cake from here and the cake was much smaller than we expected for the over two hundred dollars we paid for it. The cake started to fall apart before we could even get a good picture of it. The icing flowers that decorated the cake started to fall off. Very upsetting since you ALWAYS WANT TO REMEMBER YOUR OVERPRICED WEDDING CAKE BEING BEAUTIFUL... NOT FALLING APART. I can go on forever... BUT I think I have said enough.

my husband and i ordered our wedding cake from there and gave them a simple picture and they said it can be done, but to our surprise on the most important day of our lives the cake was the only thing that was horrible. it was missing the design i wanted on it and the whole cake look like it shifted and was sunken in. it was so ugly that i couldnt even waist a picture in my wedding album on the cake. i should have just baked my own cake that day and it would have looked better! so thanks for nothing!!!
