We went to Cake Boss café and were disappointed...and tehn came here and were happy again- Tried the cannoli, lobster tail, mille feuilles and a cupcake-they were all excellent- Large sizes, nice and fresh and decent prices. There was no wait to be served and staff were very friendly. Thank you so much, and we will definitely be back next time we are in NYC!

This is a cute little place with some outdoor seating that looks like it could be a real find. A banner declares that their cannolis won the Bobby Flay Throw-Down, but with so many shows on the Food Channel most everyone has won something these days. The cannoli was, in fact, delicious. The other pastries, however, looked great, but lacked flavor.

The cakes and other offerings also looked beautiful, but are they Barbies or Sophias, i.e. the real deal? The only way to tell is to go back and sample ... sample ... sample.

We were in desperate need of some tea and cake and some shelter from the rain when we stopped off here. Our expectations weren't particularly high - we just needed sustenance!

We each ordered a cheesecake to go with our tea which was pretty good but arrived a good 5mins before our drinks.

Having been asked what tea we wanted twice our organic tea bags arrived wrapped in huge plastic wrappers (how is that organic?!?) along with a teapot full of hot water (the clue's in the name - put the tea in the pot!) but with no lid.

We made the best of a bad lot and the tea was welcome when it eventually turned the right colour but I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

The cannolis here are famous for a reason. They are perfectly sweet (but not too sweet) and the ricotta really stands out. The pastry is flaky and melts in your mouth when you bite. They have an incredible array of pastry options to choose from, so there is something for everyone from every culture (they had French, Italian, and American pastries, etc.).

Awesome. An accidental find during a trip to Greenwich Village last year left such a strong impression on us that we just had to return with my parents on this trip. Sometimes holiday memories enhance reality with the passage of time but not in this case. My oldies chose half a dozen deserts from the menu whilst my wife and I settled on chocolate mousse. All were phenomenal. And the prices surprisingly affordable for Manhattan. Make this place top of your list of places to visit in Greenwich Village.
