Charles Stanko and George Carroll are the new owners of Provincetown Portuguese Bakery, which has been a staple in downtown Provincetown since 1910. They offer a wide variety of products including classic Portuguese sweet bread, custard cups, cakes, and fried dough. Other treats include freshly-baked breads, danish, and tarts.
Provincetown Portuguese Bakery also offers counter-service breakfast and lunch. Customers can order French toast, omelets, breakfast sandwiches, Portuguese soups, and more. Most of the bakery's recipes have been handed down from generation to generation throughout the 111 years Provincetown Portuguese Bakery has served the Cape. The bakery is scheduled to open for the season by May.
