The Cannoli King of Little Italy

Caffe Palermo - The Cannoli King of Little Italy

148 Mulberry Street


If you're in the mood for a little gastro-therapy, look no further than Caffe Palermo in Little Italy!

When it opened its doors in 1973, Caffe Palermo proudly declared itself the “Cannoli King of Little Italy,” and has been living up to the moniker ever since. The cannoli on offer boast a flaky exterior and rich creamy interior, exactly what you want from this traditional Italian dessert. If you really, really love cannoli, consider entering the cafe’s annual cannoli eating contest, held at the Feast of San Gennaro. FYI: you’ll need to eat about 20 to stay competitive.

Baby John and his crew make the best cannoli, cheesecake, tiramisu, and other delicious treats you won’t find anywhere else in the city, the state, or the country. Since opening their doors in the Spring of 1973, they have become world famous for their cannoli and other Italian specialties.

Whether you are in the neighborhood and looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, or shopping online for a mail order cannoli package, they know that you will never taste a better Italian style treat-and that’s a promise!
