We’re Open: Bronx coffee and gift shop has all your holiday needs

A coffee and gift shop on Arthur Avenue that has been around since 1979 is making it easier for New Yorkers to give a loved one something special from Italy without ever having to travel.
Cerini Coffee and Gifts is a family business that has a wide variety of Italian goods straight from Italy. There are over 30 blends of espressos, top-of-the-line pasta and many other Italian goods.
And even those who are uncomfortable going out during the pandemic can find items they might love. All of the products are available online and customers can schedule a time to pick them up – with very little contact with others.
Cerini Coffee and Gifts is featuring gift baskets this year during the holidays. There are coffee baskets and pasta baskets and baskets that have a little bit of everything.
Co-owners Giovanna Cerini and her son Johnny say that their shop and the neighborhood that it is in mean the world to them.
