I ordered two cakes from here recently. I gave them photos of what I wanted the cakes to look like. They assured me they could make the cakes with no problem at all. When I picked up the cakes the staff was extremely rude. Then come to find out neither one of the cakes I ordered looked anything like what... More

We stopped in here to pick up a few cannolis and didn't realize they served lunch as well. There were lots of vegetarian options at reasonable prices. We got eggplant parm, a veggie wrap, and the kids got pizza. The service was good and the food was really surprisingly good! This place is definitely more of a cafe than I... More

Bathroom dirty and I felt the prices were a little high. I don't like how they cook in one building and carry it into the bakery uncovered. I don't like seeing employees smoking outside......I won't return. I didn't eat the pastry gave it to my neighbor.

Four of us tried 6 different desserts. Cannolis, some little bites, cake/cheesecake and peanut butter balls. Each were fine, but we always felt like something was missing or there was just one ingredient too much in the desserts. Probably wouldn't go back even if we were in the area again.

Cannolis are so good here. I've had the cupcakes and cookies and they are okay. The atmosphere is cool. This building is definitely better than when they first opened. Service is great!

We've stopped here on two different trips to town. Each time the cannolis have been excellent. We've had them packaged and brought home to Virginia for others that couldn't make the trip. We also like the variety offered, not just your standard favors Nice filling with some good flavor. Shells have a good crunch when eaten fresh. You won't be... More

I tried these at the Phantom Gourmet last Fall, and have wanted to get back there ever since. Really good spin on a traditional cannoli. My family tried several of the desserts and were pleased with them all!

This place is worth the extra effort to find it. Bring a cooler! There are about 15 types of cannoli from traditional to birthday cake and almond joy along with eclairs, cheesecake, and other pastries and baked goods. Not sure what other food they have... We go for the cannoli!

Wholly cannoli is one of if not the best bakery in the area. It is a little pricey, but the selection is unparalleled. If you're ever in the area, don't miss out!
