About Us

Our Story

Celebrating its 40 Year Anniversary, this well known  establishment opened  in 1970 by its founders,

brothers Mario and Aldo Chimirri. Their

passion for confectionary specialties

and the art of gelato production

was a serious dedication

from the start. 

 

Arriving in the US from the small town of Floridia,

Sicily, the brothers opened the original Flora Pastry

Shop on Franklin Avenue in the South End of

Hartford. The shop was named in honor of

their hometown in Sicily, and soon, they

had more bakeries in both Avon and

Middletown. Mario became well

known for his famous "Gelato"

and Aldo had a beautiful gift

of decorating spectacular

wedding cakes.

 

In 1990, they moved to Wethersfield and opened Chimirri's Pastry Shop, renaming it

to their family name.

 

Continuing the tradition, the next generation of Chimirris have conducted business in a very special way. 

Mario's children , Lorena and Guy,

with Nella (Mario's wife) still

keep Mario and Aldo's

dream alive......

 

In a world of ever changing economics, as many

business owners maintain cost cutting measures and

add less desirable ingredients to formulate their products, this dedicated establishment

continues to keep a sharp focus on perfection

by utilizing the same

high quality ingredients used

 for many years. To this day, they

continue to establish a  regional

reputation amongst the

highest quality products

produced in the

confectionary

world..

 

Upon entering the pastry shop, you are greeted by

a beautiful display of traditional and regional

Italian confections, a wonderful variety of

pastries, an assortment of  hand-made

traditional Italian cookies and the

fabulous gelato display showcasing

the many delicious flavors which

are an absolute delight. Take in

the aroma of the freshly

baked biscotti as well

as the traditional

cheese cakes and

specialty cakes!
