Little Cannoli Bakery - sweets for the sweet

There's something exciting about walking down into the basement of the Reed Opera House and surprise - you find the sweetest little bake shop in Salem.  And just across the corridor from the tattoo parlor!  
No overpraising the sumptuous goodies in this place, which are all prepared by hand and freshly baked with loving care every morning.  A particular favorite is the chocolate eclair - a double treat - melt in your mouth delicious and a feast for the eye as well.  

Last week visitors arrived from out of town so I knew just what to do to get those grateful "oohs" and "aahs".  A little trek down to the Little Cannoli Bakery.  And I will add that it worked, we devoured the little gems with gusto.

Tucked away in the basement of the historic Reed, this little enterprise can be hard to find, but the search is worth the effort.  Intimately charming with true old world ambience, the shop boasts stain glass windows surrounded by old brick walls. There's a small seating area where you can enjoy a drink, pizza or, of course, the real reason for coming down the stairs.  The owner is always pleasantly happy to greet you too!

So when in Salem, if you need to satisfy that sweet tooth, this is a good place to try.

Life is good - bye for now.  E

REMEMBER:  Buy local when you can!
