A lot of different desserts. Tasty coffee. Great staff. The place was packed but waitresses found a spot for us.

Being gluten free, I couldn't sample the cannoli -- but my husband and I could taste the sorbet and gelato! Both are excellent!! As is the coffee. On a hot day -- the iced coffee and sorbet and gelato are great choices. [Hint: try the mango sorbet!] Our waitress was the best!

Give yourself a little break and treat yourself there.

They say it’s the home of “the best cannoli on planet earth”, and they’re not lying! An absolutely authentic and delicious treat while exploring Little Italy. Slightly pricey at $15 + tip for a cappuccino and a cannoli, but truly a worthwhile indulgence!

Only went there to grab cannoli from their outside display case. They had a variety of flavored fillings that were all great. Don't know how other places compare, but Cannoli King was so good you don't need to bother looking.
