Just returned from Sicilia in January. Walking through Gloucester, it's clear there's a large italian population. This place did not disappoint. The cappuccino were creamy- just like in Italy. We had the " lobster tail" or sfogliatelle stuffed with light cream ( not the usual custard but very good), and a pignoli cookie. Both were wonderful! We took a small... More

The cookies and assorted desserts are fine although nothing out of the ordinary. What I'm never quite satisfied with is the counter service.

Great warm place on a cold night after a good seafood dinner. The pastry cabinet display is colorful, the young waitstaff prompt, and the food lovely. What a nice way to end a night out.

Went here with 7 other people last month, after lobster rolls at Gloucester Elks. What a way to end a great Gloucester day. We all had coffee and cannolis or cookies and thought they were great. Considering 3 out of the 4 couples were Italian, that says something!

Love this place. Great coffee and all the pastries are homemade! No need to travel into the North End! Stop by, you won't be disappointed.

This delightful cafe is newly expanded and decorated. The pastries are all homemade and wonderful. The capuccino is great. Stop by in the morning and you'll feel like you are in Italy.

The Caffe is small but the pastry is awesome. The price is right too! It's a place run by locals who really know how to make delicious pastry.
