Vaccaro's Italian Pastry Shop 5

This place is pretty famous, for Cannoli's but also has great cookies, gelato and other pastries. It is kind of an event, you get these tubs of filling and the cannoli shells and you put them together yourself. I've never had a bad cannoli, and frankly I don't know if these are much better or worse than the typical, but people rave about this place.

Vaccaro's is definitely the perfect stop for a dessert night. Their famous canolis are amazing, but I particularly enjoy their candy bar Su...

Vacarro's is simply the best dessert anywhere. I've been going there since I was a little kid and even though I live in another city now, every time I'm back in B-more I make a point to go there for some gellato. The service is great, the food is great, go there RIGHT NOW!

This place is quaint, and has a great selection of delectable desserts! Don't be fooled by the high prices - if you are not alone, feel free to split the desserts, as they are HUGE! I ordered a single scoop gelato, and couldn't even eat 1/3 of it. The gelato was very good, and I was sorry I couldn't possibly eat more. The latte was good, but the regular coffee was weak. If you are in the area, this is a neat little shop to check out.

This place has excellent Italian pastries (mmmm Meraviglioso!) but boy do you pay through the nose for it. I alway get the capuccino, cannoli, a sfoglietelle and a pignoli. $16 a pound is too much for any pastry. I mean that's more than steak. But I am too lazy to make these myself so I always come here (especially for holidays). And every friend I ever brought here was impressed! A good way to cap off an evening and wind up a date.

We went to Vacarro's on a Monday night for the all-you-can-eat dessert, and I was absolutely delighted. Gianni, the waiter, was cordial, helpful, and unflappable in the midst of tons of customers. The tiramisu was easily some of the best I've had and the rum cake was amazing. The second round included a mini canoli and three scoops of chocolate hazelnut ice cream sandwiched between cream puff pastry. Again, the canoli was the best I'd ever had. The third round included spumoni and a sampler of canolis, a butterball, a pignoli cookie, and cream puffs. Finally! Some authentic spumoni! The pignoli cookies were surprisingly soft with a pleasant almond flavor. My husband and I had five cafe au laits between us, and they were wonderful. Even the little sugar cookie they put on the plate next to the mug is fabulous. This little pastry shop is a gem.

Every time I am in Baltimore, I make it a point to stop at Vaccaro's for some cannolis (the best EVER) and an espresso. I just wish that there were more Vacarro's!

This is one of my favorite haunts. No matter where in the world I've been I always come back for a Vaccaro's Cannoli. The Pignoli cookies are also a favorite. This place cannot be beat for the best dessert in Baltimore. See you there!

The Scene
Sparkling glass cases filled with tempting pastries, cheesecakes and cookies line the front of this corner shop which also has windows to spare. Every other inch is filled with small tables, which seat the throngs of dessert devotees who, weather permitting, spill out onto the sidewalk and snack under the awning and neon sign.

The Food
You may need to come back over again to sample the wide range of pastries available. Specialties include rum and cannoli cake, numerous flavors of napoleons and the creamiest gelato ever, in flavors like tiramisu, hazelnut and peanutto. The most popular desserts come from the specialita della casa list: These irresistible sundae-style concoctions of gelati and toppings are paired with cakes, brownies, or waffles. Servings are large enough for two or three to share. The apple strudel napoleon is served warm with creamy vanilla gelato and whipped topping then dusted generously with cinnamon.

For adults - I don't bake birthday cakes...I pick them up here! There is not an item in the case that isn't good. Skip dinner on a Monday and go here for the all-you-can-eat dessert.

The pignoli cookies were luscious while the Napolean had the perfect balance between pastry and filling.

They have very good rich and creamy ice cream to go with the best cookies sold in Baltimore - to die for! Not to mention those wonderfully fresh cannoli... and the rum cake made for a fantastic Christmas one year for my out of town family.
