Ebinger's was a favorite of Brooklyn residents for many, many years. The first Ebinger's Bakery opened in 1898.
However, Ebinger's failed to correctly read market trends and finally was unable to compete with mass produced
pastries produced by companies like Entenmann's and sold at low prices in supermarkets. Ebinger's closed in
bankruptcy on August 26, 1972. Supposedly the Ebinger family has all their original recipes under lock and key
and is uninterested in releasing them.
