I visited Isgro Pastries in the Italian Market section of Philadelphia and was knocked out by the wonderful aroma as I entered. There was a vast selection of cookies and pastries to choose from. They were all so beautiful, it was hard to choose. I made my choices which they placed in a box for me to take home. I... More

We returned the next day,... More

The eclairs are my favorite. This cute little Italian bakery has been around for forever. I love stopping by when in Philly. You know you're nearly there when you can smell the sweet pastries baking in the kitchen. (Yes, you can actually smell the goodness outside walking up to the bakery!) Walking in you can see all of the beautiful... More

One of the great Italian bakeries in South Philly. Best cannoli in town. Lines outside during the Christmas holidays. Just cross the street and have breakfast at Sabrina's. Excellent!

We've tried cannolis all over the Philly area and Isgros is the best! They use fresh cannoli shells and real ricotta,chees in the filling. Their Italian cookies are delicious as well.

Visiting from Florida as I was born in South Philly, I had for the first time ever the mini rum cake. Like everything made here for nearly 100 years it was wonderful. A Philly treasure like Termini's Bakery don't skip this place if you are in Philly after seeing the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross, whatever stop here and pick up... More

My wife and I visited Isgro for the first time two years ago, when visiting her son, and it was one the first places we mentioned when visiting him recently. The cannoli's are very generously filled, and they are so popular they keep them handy stacked on a tray. The place was 3 deep with customers, in the middle of... More
