For years, I'd stop at the local Termini branch for a box of them before heading to my cousins' NJ home for a holiday meal. The tradition is so established that the one generation younger boy said cannoli when I arrived at our Austin familiy reuinion last summer. A couple of years earlier, seeing some in a pasticceria in Italy, his sister said, "I thought cannoli came from Philadelphia!"
The Ardmore Termini's has closed, so I no longer can cite convenience for not going to Isgro's. This morning I was there. Due to the holiday, they weren't filling the cheese ones to order. Isgro's cannoli
I also picked up a mess of fancy pastries. Isgro's pastries
You'll have to wait for that review, but I've had the peach before. One of the best more complicated treats.
8 cannoli and 8 different pastries - $44.25
Swung by John's Roast Pork for their signature sammie on the way back to the office. Goooooooood! But that's another post. (Our friend Holly has pages for both places.)
Everybody have a great holiday!
