Cascarelli’s Historical Portfolio

Cascarelli’s Albion is perhaps the longest-standing business in downtown Albion, Michigan. Read here to learn more history of this business.

Robert Cascarelli was born in 1856, in Borgopartenope, Soseinza, Italy and died in 1932 in Albion,  Michigan. He married Vincenza Biafor who was born in 1873 in Piefrafitta, Italy and died in 1947 in Albion, Michigan.
Their son Louie, born in 1907 (their fifth child) took over the family business.
The business actually started with a fruit push-cart in 1897, but became established as a fruit stand and confectioners at the current location in 1909. One year before that, an earlier location of the store was destroyed in the great flood of 1908, and a beloved peanut roaster cart was lost in that tragedy.
Read more about Cascarelli’s from the following articles, from the Albion History Room.

Always loved that and the Swiss steak

Just wondering if they cook it WITH OUT GARLIC I am Allergic and would love to find a Restaurant that can make food taste good without The help of GARLIC 😳

I love old school comfort food like that.

I love this but not the green beans .

Is this any day of the week?

I can almost taste it...
