    The cannolis are unreal. Lavazza coffee straight out of Italy, great place to chill or get se work done.

    The iced mocha is great, and I hear that their gelato drinks are awesome. Note that they only except cash, which is kind of annoying.

    They have almond milk for lattes (always a plus). The baristas are really fun and sassy here. Bummer they don't accept cards, but there's an ATM inside.

    I discovered that, when the espresso machine breaks down at one of the key caffès in Little Italy, there's no back-up plan! Porca la miseria!

    Punkin pie latte is very good! Sooo much better than Starbucks (and I'm a Starbucks addict).
