A Cannoli Bar recently opened in Avondale Heights, Melbourne. The cannoli here are filled on the spot. The Sicilian classic is piped – generously – full of sweetened ricotta, mascarpone, chopped dark couverture chocolate, candied citrus and glacè cherries. Chopped pistachio decorates the ends. There are non-Sicilian versions such as chocolate or vanilla custard, and completely untraditional Oreo, Nutella and Ferrero Rocher varieties.
There are other Sicilian desserts too, such as almond biscuits and cassata siciliane layers of sponge, sweet ricotta and candied fruit, as well as a small selection of pizza.
Oh, and they also whip up cakes, including Cannoli Towers. YUM!
Where: 23 Riviera Road, Avondale Heights
When: 8am-3pm, Wed-Frid; 8am-4pm, Sat-Sun
