One of a host of pastry shops within a six block radius, Delillo Pastry is a favorite among employees at nearby St. Barnabas Hospital and other workers looking to bring home a quick taste of Little Italy. Brightly lit, with a long pastry case extending to the back on the right and a dozen four-tops on the left, the shop is probably as beloved for its cappuccinos and espressos (well-made with a thick layer of crema on top) as it is for its Napoleons, cannoli, and custard-filled babas. Delillo also stocks the standard Italian sesame cookies, hard-tack biscotti and meringues. In the warmer months, the shop’s front-of-store gelato stand does a stout business, too.
