Everybody who likes cannolis, biscotti, and focaccia absolutely must go to La Biscotteria, screams hhc. Cannolis are made fresh from good ingredients: mascarpone, ricotta, and a little wine. Foccacia is topped with ingredients fresh from the baker’s garden–homegrown rosemary, eggplants, potatoes, artichokes, and more. But be aware: focaccia and cannolis are only sold on Saturday, and they sell out easily, so place your order early. Call a week or two ahead of time.
Angela, the front counterperson, is one of the sweetest, friendliest people ever. She lets everybody sample as many varieties of biscotti as they wish, and will even give you some foccacia. It’s all delicious. One lb of biscottini costs $9; amaretto cookies are $5, panettone are $9 and $12, rosemary crostini are $6. They take cash and checks only.
Hours: Tuesday to Friday: 6 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturday: 6 a.m.-3 p.m.. Closed Sunday and Monday.
