Aggie’s History

Filippo and Nina Bongiorno emigrated with their two children from Palermo, Sicily to Detroit, Michigan in 1953. Two years later their 3rd child, Aggie, was born. The Bongiornos worked long hours for other businesses before they finally fulfilled their dream and opened a family-owned bakery in 1977. Using their family recipes past down through the generations, the Bongiorno Bakery was an immediate success! This is when Aggie’s life long passion began for crafting delicious cakes and pastries made from scratch. Today, 37 years later, Aggie’s passion is stronger than ever for crafting the same incredible baked goods that her family has been known for since 1977.

Aggie’s Bakery & Cake Shop is now under their 3rd generation of family ownership and her son Adam and daughter Ashley are actively involved in the business. Aggie is also surrounded by a growing staff of great people who share her vision for creating the finest quality baked goods. Aggie and her family are enjoying their craft more than ever and look forward to serving you fresh and delicious cakes and pastries in the near future.

We look forward to seeing you at the bakery!
