A’Putia Pastry Cafe – Quaint & Tasty!
Today’s Hoboken 60 Second Review is for A’Putia Pastry Cafe over at 200 Monroe Street and we say: A must!
This tiny spot at the corner of 2nd Street is unassuming from the outside, as well as in. From what I recall, it’s a new retail installation as well.
Here’s a snippit of why owner Giacomo d’Alessandro decided to open up: “After having spent time in the U.S, and in particular in the New York City area and having tasted cannoli pastries produced locally, decided it was time to introduce the true taste of Sicilian cannoli into the country.” (Which means they suck in the U.S.!)
The menu is has just a few items on it, but that’s okay. Take a look inside below:
Geniune Italian Cannoli at A’Putia Pastry Cafe in Hoboken
The two things we sampled were “home runs” in our opinion. For one, the Cannoli is imported from Italy. And I have to say that I have never ever liked cannolis around here. Something about the custard made me gag. However, this cannoli changed my mind 100% Crunchy, not overly sweet, but perfect all around. Worth going off low-carb to reward yourself!
And next were the “Mezzaluna” quiches. We tried the ham & cheese as well as the tomato & blue cheese. Both were savory & fresh. The bonus was that they came with a super green salad on the side – perfectly dressed. A nice light lunch (under $7).
We recommend you give A’Putia a shot. You’ll be surprised! Up next for us is a nice espresso or cappucino. Can’t wait!
