Tucked inside Stamford's Springdale neighborhood is a bustling bakery.
"This year, Passover is the same week as Easter week, so it's been crazy," said Sabrina DiMare Taylor, co-owner of DiMare Pastry Shop.
From coconut macaroons to Easter bread, Di Mare Pasty Shop is busy baking this season's staples.
The Di Mare family's been running the full service Italian bakery since 1976. They make everything by hand, which is one reason why customers say they keep coming back for more.
"The pastries, everything just tastes great," said John Riina, a Stamford resident.
Customers say the family bakery has become a part of their own.
"My wife's family is from here and this place has been a tradition ever since I've been with her," said Riina.
"It's good for families to come here and have birthday parties and things like that," said Alessia Riina.
"If you're sad and upset. You need a pick up, you come to DiMare's," said Norma Taylor-Preston, a Waterbury resident. "You just walk in, smell everything, look at everything and you'll leave out with a smile."
Owner Sabrina DiMare Taylor says Easter is their busiest holiday. Just this weekend, they'll make over 500 pounds of cookies. Meaning all hands are on deck.
"My employees have all been here for a long time, especially my girls. And the girls that have left to pursue other careers or are in college always tend to come back because they love working holidays here," said DiMare Taylor.
The bakery in Stamford will be open Sunday at 8 a.m. You can also visit their bakery in Riverside. All the details are on their website, http://www.dimarepastry.com.
