As only a minority of you know (hence the telling-of-information) my school is in the Bronx. I know it seems really dodgy, especially since most of you probably have not been there (and why should you? It’s the Bronx -_-), but my school’s area is actually pretty okay. We have Little Italy just a few blocks away in a street called Arthur Avenue, and that’s where students usually hang out if they feel like eating out around the campus.
I don’t go to one Italian restaurant more than once, mainly because I have not found one that’s… outstanding, but also because I don’t want to bother to remember the location and the name. But there is one place that I go to every once in a while, and that is the Palombo Pastry Shop.

It’s an Italian cake shop, obviously. What makes it special is it’s originality, because it is truly Italian, not just a shop claiming to be Italian just because it has tiramisu, cannoli, and other stuff like that. This one is legit Italian.
I have had a lot of their cakes and coffees, but the ones that are worth mentioning are the chocolate dipped cannoli, original tiramisu, almond tiramisu, and the cappuccino.
Here are some pictures I took from the shop:
And this is the cake I bought one day:
So if you are ever in the Bronx, or you go to Fordham University and weirdly have not been to Palombo, you should definitely come here. It’s worth the try!
