A couple of months ago, my sister showed up at a family dinner with a box of cannoli from a bakery in Milton. I’ve never been one to get too excited over cannoli. No chocolate, no nuts, no fruit…
But when she mentioned chocolate chip cannoli, well that changed everything. Like the big kid I am when it comes to dessert, I rushed impatiently through our first course and as soon as the plates were cleared…I was into the box.
Turns out, chocolate chip cannoli are pretty darn incredible. Crispy outside, rich ricotta inside that wasn’t too sweet, with little pops of chocolate in every bite.
Fast forward to last weekend, and I happened to be in Milton visiting the sister. We decided what better excuse for a girls-only break on a Sunday morning than for my sister to give me a tour of La Rose Fine Italian Bakery, home of the chocolate chip cannoli.
We arrived a few minutes after they opened, and things were BUSTLING. A steady stream of overflowing trays were coming out from what must be an enormous kitchen in the back.
So….if you’re looking for a little traditional Italian flavour, or even a Canadian twist on an Italian classic, OR if you’re looking for props to help you cheer for Italy in the World Cup, this is the place.
They are very, very ready for the World Cup.
Great selection, excellent quality, good prices and good service. How can you go wrong..?
