Rising out of the suburban homes in Avondale Heights is this pretty darn delicious slice of Sicily disguised as a Cannoli Bar! It is hidden among houses so you'd be totally forgiven if you thought you were in the wrong place - but as you 'round the corner you spot the old school shop and your taste buds will let you know you've just found heaven!
We came for Cannoli but it is so much more! The music alone creates a fantastic atmosphere and the selection of food and fare on offer is mouth watering!
Of course the cannoli is amazing - the classico, nutella and pistaschio options were creamy and crispy (yes mamma tried them all - oooopppss!) the coffee is amazing too!
Oh and make sure you take cash money as they are pretty new and don't have card facilities as yet.
Mamma's special mentions: there is a cool park called Canning Reserve on the river not far away - grab some yummy treats and go and have a picnic !
