Caffe Aurora Pasticceria since 1941, is located at 145 Mill Street, Poughkeepsie NY 12601, Dutchess County in the Hudson River Valley.

From Caffe Aurora: "In August of 1962 they moved the bakery to its present location 145 Mill Street in the city's Northern section once called " Little Italy", because of the many residents and businesses of Italian descent. In October of 1980, Paolo's youngest son Louis took over ownership of Caffe Aurora. Besides apprenticing alongside his parents he also furthered his abilities by receiving a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with a major in marketing and a minor in personnel administration. He also studied at the Culinary Institute of America to further expand their product line. Today Caffe Aurora continues the traditions instilled by Paolo and Filomena and its still possible to hear customers having conversations in Italian like they did in the days when Eleanor Roosevelt's limousine would pull up to the curb at Caffe Aurora and her chauffeur would get out and come in for a box of Petit Fours to take home to Hyde Park."
