I love the Dynamite Bites

I know everyone goes for the cannoli but I love the "Dynamite Bite" (a smaller version of the classic Dynamite stick. Just an amazing dessert I have never had anywhere else. This is a cute little bakery. Good green mountain coffee. It is always pretty busy.

I've had fresh cannolis at many nice Italian restaurants, but they all take a back seat to Wholly Cannoli! The specialty flavor varieties are the ones to try, so many selections to choose from. A little pricey (around $4) compared to otehr places, but the freshness and flavor can't be beat. We try to head over to WC any time... More

Have been going there for years. Selection is still fantastic, but the service and consistancy are falling short compared to the past. The staff is not nearly as friendly as they used to be, and wait time is long. Maybe there has been a management change. Hopefully they can acheive past levels of service in the future.

I was happy to be in town over the weekend so we could stop by our favorite Cannoli shop! We were surprised to see the expansion and detailed menu! The staff suggested just the right box for a post Sunday dinner desert! I still love the original, but the kids enjoyed (and finished) the mini's!

Any time someone shows up with a box of these treats, my family rips into these and piggishly gobbles them up. Enough said. Pricey, but hey, who can but a price on happiness.

I was there with my husband a couple of weeks ago, on a late Saturday afternoon. We were driving by so we decided to go in. We ordered a tiramisu to share and i also ordered an espresso. As someone else mentioned, at this place they use butter cream in their desserts, instead of using ricotta or mascarpone cheese for... More

This is one of the best places to go for desserts- the cannolis are delicious, many unique combinations and flavors. There are also many delicious dessert choices besides cannolis, and they make really good breakfast sandwiches. Great for grab and go goodies, don't buy just one, they are so gosh darn good.

OK, this is controversial in my family -- my half-Italian wife thinks it's sacrilegious to put chocolate chips on a cannoli, but I like them just fine. We'll often pick up a box of mixed cannolis for pot lucks and parties. I just wish they still made the raspberry marzipan cake!

Great desserts, and I am a sucker for their gourmet pizzas, too! Not so much made for "in-dining", but great to stop in and grab something to go!
