Cannoli Bar is on a quiet residential street in Melbourne’s north-western suburb of Avondale Heights. But its cannoli are so popular, you usually can’t get a park out front.
Ready-made cannoli are the specialty but, to give customers a “piped-fresh crunchy experience”, the team introduced DIY cannoli kits. Once only available for special occasions, they recently became a regular fixture on the menu.
All Cannoli Bar’s flavours are available, including the Sicilian with sweetened ricotta, mascarpone, chopped dark couverture chocolate, candied citrus and glacé cherries. There’s also Nutella, pistachio, vanilla and chocolate custard. Packs ($50) include 10 shells, a piping bag of custard, and chocolate or nuts to decorate the ends.
Call (03) 9337 7049 to order. They’re available for pick-up or delivery (which is free for anyone within 30 minutes of Avondale Heights).
