Meet Head Baker, Dana Iannelli
All of the sweets and treats available at Shorebreak Cafe would not be possible without head baker, Dana Iannelli! Dana grew up in Southern New Jersey and always called the Jersey Shore her second home because of the special memories made with friends and family over the years. For Dana, the best part of the seashore is the food! “Spending many summers tasting every boardwalk treat, I knew I wanted to create my desserts and dishes that could bring equal thrill, creativity, and taste to locals and guests just like me,” says Dana.
Dana earned dual pastry and culinary degrees from The Culinary Institute of America. She has worked in bakeries across the nation, including private country clubs on the east coast, and even for a New York Custom Cake Designer who inspired her design style and artistry. Dana also competed on the Food Network’s Wedding Cake Championship! She is thrilled to be back in South Jersey, baking her dreams into reality. Dana says, “whether I am designing desserts for the cafe, spinning a unique ice cream flavor, or brewing Lavazza for your daily wake-me-up latte, I know that in the end, I create smiles and I create happiness”.
