The Fat Cardinal Bakery


The Fat Cardinal Bakery

Proving that Rockaway continues to be a great incubator for food entrepreneurs, a trio of local residents has launched The Fat Cardinal Bakery this year. Add it to your list of must-have sweet treats.

The cookie bakery “presents modern takes on classic cookies,” with a selection that includes chewy cherry almond, malted chocolate chip, and Mexican hot chocolate.

Originally intended as a mail-order only business, the founders John Pagano, James Otton and Thomas Quinn set up a table at Uncle Louie G’s for the Taste of Rockaway food festival. The cookies were a huge hit, they will continue to be available in the shop on summer weekends. Customers also have the option of topping them with ice cream.
