Piccione Pastry

When you've got a sweet tooth the size of a small planet, dessert is a meal course deemed appropriate any time of the day, and Piccione Pastry happily obliges. The Italian bakery from the family behind Butler's Pantry, Bixby's and Cafe Madeleine opens its doors at 9 a.m. six days a week — just in time to sneak in a rum baba or fruit crostata after scarfing a piece of the housemade frittata for breakfast. For lunch, chow on a panini with a cup of seasonal soup, and follow that with an almond-infused, chocolate-dipped Italian tri-color cookie or some sfogliatella riccia, Piccione's signature flaky pastry with a creamy orange-ricotta filling. Starting to crash? Grab a midday snack: some Lavazza espresso with a pistachio or coconut cream cannoli. Looking for something sweet after dining out on Delmar? Drop by for some tasty gelato and tiramisu, or stop in after seeing a show for a late-night snack. Whether you prefer dessert first or like to save the best for last, Piccione's consistently enticing sweets deliver all day long.
