Best cannolis I've ever had. But I'm not sure they are open anymore. You can get their baked goods at Francos

When I was planning my wedding, I knew exactly what kind of cake I wanted. My heart was set on a lemon cake with raspberry filling and no fondant ANYWHERE on the cake. Seemed simple enough...WRONG! Each bakery I went to told me that the flavor combinations I wanted were not what they offered (even though those places touted themselves... More

Joanna's is currently in the process of relocating from Williamsport to Montoursville. They should be re-opening in April. They will be closed until then. Thanks.

I've been there 3 times and I only ever get the Cannolis. I heard they were good, but that was an understatement. Literally the best cannoli I've ever eaten (for whatever that's worth). They fill them fresh to order and dip the ends in chocolate chips. Every time i go to Williamsport, my wife makes sure I bring a couple... More

My family has been getting bread from Joanna's since I can remember. It's always fresh and the special orders my family gets--Country Italian and the hot pepper bread are consistently good. Also, when you stop in for bread, grab a canoli or two or three... :)

TIP: The retail space in the bakery is rather small, so the selection is a bit limited compared to what you would expect at a bakery. First check out the items they make on their website and then call in and order ahead and you will get exactly what you want. It will be freshly baked and ready for you... More

I special ordered a tiramisu cake after having tasted Joanna's creation at a party. It was not only beautifully presented, but delicious also. Definitely a winner.

I rank Joanna's as among the top 2 cannoli's that I've had in the world. Number 2 would be in Erice, Sicily at the Golden Tulip Bakery. I bought 3 and finished all 3 in the car within 50miles and serious thought about driving back to pick up more. If I'm anywhere near Williamsport, PA, I will drive by for... More
