    Ferrara's Bakery & Cafe: Lucious Italian Pastries

    Ferrara's Bakery & Cafe is one of NYC's most famous bakeries serving up Italian Cookies, cheesecake/cakes, and delicious Cannolis. Ferrara's has been in business since 1892 and is still family owned/operated.

    The extensive menu (found here) is amazing and the cafe is a great place to go (after some delicious pizza) for dessert and a cappuccino. My favorite is the tiramisu.

    If you're in a hurry, stop by the bakery and take some treats home. Ferrara's has breakfast and lunch items as well.

    Ferrara: The best cannoli in town!

    This little bakery was located just a quick walk away from our hotel on Grand Street, and we ended up going back 3 times during the 4 days we spent in the city! Caffe Ferrara was established back in 1892, and over a century later it is still operated by the Ferrara family. It's open until midnight, which makes it the perfect place to go for dessert after dinner in the Little Italy area. They offer a really nice selection of gelato ice cream, cookies and pastries, including many Italian specialties. Having watched Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather" just a couple weeks before our trip to NYC, Sylvain and I were excited to finally get a chance to try "real" cannoli. We tried them at a few places in Little Italy, but nothing came close to the cannoli we got at Ferrara's, they were delicious! For those who are in a hurry, there's a take-out counter and although the line can be long, service is really fast. For others, it's possible to sit at a small table and order a coffee to go with your selection of pastries.

    All this and more at Ferrara's! Ferrara Bakery & Cafe, Little Italy

    Ferrara's: Great Italian Pastries

    by TexasDave Updated Jul 20, 2006

    The perfect place for a mid-afternoon pit-stop, after exploring Chinatown and lower Manhattan. They have excelent Italian pastries and expresso. In summer gelati can be bought as well. And of course you can have them wrapped to go for a nice evening dessert.
    However I would only recommend this place if Little Italy is the only area of NYC you'll be in because their prices are exhorbitant. i.e. $4.50 for a canoli--outrageous! See my other tips for true Italian bakeries in different parts of the city with more down-to-earth prices and just as good, if not better, quality.
