Photos: Snazzy Italian Pastries in the Bronx

by

There’s no shortage of hefty, rainbow-colored Italian pastries on Arthur Avenue. Morrone Pastry Shop and Cafe is just one of the spots you can find cannoli, giant cream-filled lobster tails, super-dense eclairs, and Naploeons so firm they bend back your plastic fork. There’s a freezer full of layered gelato cups, too.

Morrone makes Sanguinaccio, a dark chocolate custard enriched with pig’s blood, and bakes it off in miniature tart shells (but they won’t be selling those until the cold weather comes back). Morrone Pastry Shop and Cafe; 2349 Arthur Avenue, Bronx 718-733-0424
