Varallo Brothers Bakery

Varallo Brothers Bakery

South Philly is home to many Italian bakeries and restaurants. I'm a huge fan of Varallo's. If you want bread for your Thanksgiving dinner, you call ahead of time and they ask you what time you're going to pick it up - so they can pull it hot out of the oven for you. The cannoli are wonderful, the donuts amazing, and the pumpkin cheesecake makes me sigh. Also not to be missed is the restaurant next door, La Cucina Varallo. It is a tiny BYO which serves great Italian food - and the desert menu is stocked by the bakery next door.

After a successful dinner party, everyone enjoys relaxing with a sweet and satisfying dessert and their favorite espresso drink. With a cappuccino or steaming shot of espresso to accompany a classic tiramisu or chocolate-covered profiterole, there are few things better than easing into an engaging conversation and gracefully letting the evening unfold. To keep this relaxing experience as hassle-free as possible, we've paired our favorite Italian espresso with two authentic desserts produced near Milano, Italy. This Italian-style sampler will remind you of an evening spent at an outdoor café in Europe. This assortment includes: Caffe Vergnano 1882 Gourmet Espresso: Italy''s Vergnano Arabica blend is a product with a delicate flavor and smooth aroma which is created by the low roasting of only the very best varieties of Arabica from Central and South America. We've included their Medium Grind, which can be used in automatic drip filters to create easy, espresso-roast flavor with the push of a button. (8.8 oz.) Tiramisu by Solo Italia: The most classic of all Italian desserts, prepared for you following the tradition of a local recipe. Soft sponge cake is drenched in a light coffee-flavored liqueur, a creamy white mascarpone mousse with a dash of Marsala wine, all sprinkled with cocoa. (3 oz) Profiteroles by Solo Italia: Delicate pastry puffs filled with vanilla custard and covered with fine chocolate. An absolute delight! (3 oz)
