“Italian deserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is your must do if you are looking for Italian treats in New Orleans. It used to be the only place to get gelato in the city, and is still the best. They also do authentic Italian coffee drinks and make amazing cannolis.

“Brocato's is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I have tried the best Italian bakeries in New York, Boston and the like and none of them hold a candle to Brocatos. It is the best!

“Cannoli! Espresso! Spumoni!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

If you miss Brocato's....well....you've missed one of the best spots in New Orleans! If you want authentic Italian pastries, ice cream, and coffee.....with a slice of New Orleans history thrown in...then this is the place to go! I've had cannoli all over the world....Brocato's is THE BEST!!! My son says that their espresso is "the real thing". Don't miss perusing the old photos on the wall. A slice of New Orleans history!

“a must-taste in new orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

a trip to angelo brocato's is a great way to get off the beaten path in new orleans. it is located a fair distance from the usual downtown tourist-traps, in the heart of mid-city. getting there is half the fun (you'll pass through the beautiful bayou st. john neighborhood), and the gelato really is in a class of it's own.
