60 Second Review: A’Putia Pastry Cafe

A’Putia Pastry Cafe – Quaint & Tasty!

Hoboken 60 second review APutia - 60 Second Review: A'Putia Pastry CafeToday’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).

I’m pretty sure not all cannolis in the U.S. “suck”. There are lots of great Italian bakeries in the that make great cannolis.

We’ve been to the place though and we do like it a lot. This new trend of little places with eclectic selections is a good thing. The space was friendly and although a few more food items would be nice it’s a super-small space so you can’t go crazy there. Hopefully they survive because it’s a needed addition to that neighborhood.


I actually love their coffee, I have a latte there every morning, it’s wayyyy better than Starbucks, so I have to disagree with the first commenter. My only experience with the food is one of the mezzaluna quiches, which was delicious. I’ve never had the cannoli (they just opened a few weeks ago!) but I’m really glad there’s a great little coffee place a couple blocks from my house, an area that was surely lacking.


Unfortunately, I despise Goat cheese.. Guess I am saving calories.


I must write to express my utter frustration with the very sad truth A’PUTIA seems to have decided that the decor would mask the unappetizing food that has been so far delivered to their patrons. I felt so guilty when I had given to whomever at the cafe my dislike of their Cannoli and expressed my displeasure with the dirty water would have called the imitation cafe. Im glad someone else has negative feelings for the “goat ricotta cheese Cannoli filling” Please do something and improve
so I may stop hating you for being so close but having me trek to Luxxe Cafe just to have a decent and wonderful espresso or Cappucino. You fall far below Starbucks!
