I've been a Brocato fan since 1974 - best canollis, spumone and seed cookies in the area!

I love to stop in Brocato's when I'm in the area of Carrollton and Canal to have my favorite--their cannoli's freshly made with the best cheeses and a crispy shell. For tourists, this is a good coffee and dessert stop on the Canal Streetcar line and there are several popular restaurants in the... read more

This is a 100 year old family business that has survived through good and bad economic times, through wars and the great depression, and was almost wiped out by Hurricane Katrina. This place is very family and very Italian. It is a joy to visit. They have a great selection gelato, cannoli, pastries and cakes. I love the gelato and... More

Good gelato, pastries and more. Family owned and operated for years. I always have gelato and my wife gets hot chocolate with whipped cream.

There's always a crowd in this place, and you know what that means... their selection of Italian desserts and coffees are worth the wait!

Lifelong New Orleans native & fellow Sicilian - this is our family's go-to dessert shop for the best Italian Desserts and definitely best canoli I've ever had! Adorable shop, great place for post-meal coffee & desserts. This is where the locals go, so if you're a tourist, check Brocato's out!

It is a place that makes New Orleans. The Brocato's are so friendly and make you feel at home. The pastries and gelato are some of the best you can get.

There is always a line and seating is limited, but this family run establishment offers olde world ambiance with awesome individually made canoli -filled as ordered, authentic Italian coffees, gelato, Italian ice, and the most wonderful St. Joseph chocolate almond ice cream anywhere on...

This place has the best atmosphere, always crowded but someone you can always manage to find a table. The decor is still reminiscent of the early 1900s when it was founded. I have tried MANY things on the menu and have never left disappointed. Great for families, couples, friends, or just a stop to treat yourself!
