Individual & Single-Serving Desserts

Dessert Tortina Sbrisolona

Few things impress me as much as a nicely arranged display case filled with a variety of pretty pastries, cakes, and other desserts. I’m especially a fan of single-serving and mini desserts as it makes it easy to take the exact amount that you’d like to eat without having to cut, spoon, or otherwise serve anything.

Fresh Baked Bread at Eataly

Bread Loaf

The bread stand at Eataly is an absolute carbivore heaven. Its not huge but the array of rustic bread loaves and rolls is impressive. The market’s breads can be purchased to be taken home and are also used to hold in the sandwich-y goodness of Eataly’s focaccia, panini, and hand-carved sandwiches.

Sweets & Treats at Limelight Marketplace

Limelight Marketplace - Gelato at Baci Gelato

The building that houses Limelight Marketplace has been home to a church and 80’s nightclub. In its most recent iteration, it functions as a mall which houses a few luxury shops and dining establishments. I visited once in October of 2010 for some gelato (absolutely yummy!) and spent a few minutes strolling around the food court.

Italian Desserts at Arthur Avenue Market Pasty Shop

Arthur Ave Pastry Shop - Chocolate Cream Puff
