The real-life Brooklyn bakery that serviced the plot of the 1987 Nicolas Cage and Cher movie Moonstruck has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Crain’s reports, listing “assets of $126,100 and liabilities near $500,000.” The 92-year-old wholesale bakery, which originally operated out of the Henry Street space that’s now home to Maybelle’s Café in Carroll Gardens, joined forces and briefly shared billing with Monteleone Bakery on Court Street, which still sells its bread but no longer advertises the Cammareri name. Meanwhile, Cammareri Brothers still supplies breads to a number of local restaurants and businesses, and Jacqueline Juliano, who owns the bakery with her brother Joe, opened the Cammareri Brothers Caffé in Fort Greene earlier this year.
