Boleria, which means cakery in Portuguese, was founded by Carolina Figueiredo, who was born in Recife, Brazil. After getting a degree in engineering, she joined Citibank where she worked for 15 years, in Sao Paulo and in New York, where she moved to in 2012 with her family. After battling with breast cancer, she decided to change her career and attend Le Cordon Bleu in London and the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan, where she graduated as Pastry Chef.
Carolina had planned to open Boleria in March of 2020 when COVID hit, and the opening was put on hold. The bakery was finally able to open in July 2020 and immediately began enchanting its customers with great customer service, delicious food, and a very welcoming ambiance.
All products, except for the croissants, are made from scratch at the store with high-quality products and are sold fresh. We believe that eating should always be a very pleasant experience and that's what we offer for our customers. For us Brazilians, it's even more meaningful as it brings great memories of the unique Brazilian flavors. For the regular customers, it's a wonderful opportunity to get to know Brazilian best-sellers as well as traditional, contemporary cuisine food and fall in love with them. Following the food industry needs, we have gluten-free, sugar-free, and vegan options, such as our amazing banana bread.
Our diverse, talented team will be happy to meet you at the store and provide you with great customer service.

“Sure, you can try just one brigadeiro - a Brazilian-chocolate truffle made with condensed milk - but you'll end up with a bow-tied box of sprinkled, swirled, and dotted ones from a chef who hails from Brazil and was trained at Le Cordon Bleu. You'll then sneak back for flan in a jar, pão de queijo, churro cake, and dulce de leche in all its permutations.”
This bakery is the brainchild of Scarsdale resident (and mom of two) Carolina Figueiredo, who sources many of her ingredients from Brazil. And that means coffee: rich, dark, and bursting with
flavor, especially when paired with Figueiredo's pão de queijo (aka Brazilian cheese bread), available either frozen (to take home) or fresh in the store. We're also fans of the brigadeiros (Brazilian traditional chocolate truffles), and the vegan and gluten-free options. Boleria, incidentally, means "cakery" in Portuguese.
“Chef Carolina Figueiredo’s bakery will have you indulging your sweet tooth. (And your salty one won’t suffer from FOMO either.) ...
Although toasts, soups, and salads are also there for the asking, you just can’t leave without something sweet. Dine in or takeout, but even if you just stay for a cup of coffee (imported from southeast Brazil), you’ll be gifted a brigadeiro to help wash it down.”
