Our favorite cannoli in the city [that's saying a LOT!]
An Italian Cafe that's been family-run in the Village since 1974 serving up classic Italian pastries.
What's the Deal?
It's honestly our favorite cannoli. It's not too sugary which is hard to find in the US. They're still pretty big though so if you're not going to split it, opt for a mini- we also always get the pistachio topping. In addition to the typical array of Italian classic pastries, they made amazingly large cookies in a variety of flavors. All of them are soft, chewy + perfect.
There's a huge coffee + tea list with decent prices + a nice garden area in the back to sit. It can certainly be filled with tourists, but it's worth a visit if you're hanging out in the Village + just want to grab a coffee/snack + chat with a friend.
You can visit Rocco's by taking the B/D/F/M/A/C/E trains to the West 4th Street station, or the 1 train to Christopher St.
