535 Hudson Street
at Charles St.
Charming and sweet Italian pastry shop on Hudson Street in the West Village. They sell classic Italian pastries and gelati.
What's great: They make many classic Italian cookies and cakes, including biscotti and stracciatella and a cassata-style layer cake with candied fruit. They also have seasonal specialties for Christmas and Easter. The gelati is made by the shop.
What to know: They deliver throughout Manhattan but you should call to see what the charge might be. In the area around the shop delivery is free. Again, call for details.
