DE ROBERTIS CAFFE . 176 First Avenue (between 10th and 11th Streets) New York, NY 10009
I love when businesses have a history. De Robertis was established in 1904 and has been passed down through four generations of family. This Italian bakery has a huge menu of cookies, pastries and cakes-there's pretty much something for everyone. We tried the Lobster Tail (my favorite of them al- clam shaped pastry filled with vanilla bavarian cream), Tiramisu, Napoleon and Strawberry Cheesecake. Decadent!
