Corbo's Bakery in Little Italy

We get a lot of questions about where to eat in Little Italy. We haven't really gotten around to trying all the restaurants but, er, we can vouch for the quality of the baked goods! We go to Corbo's Bakery two or three times a week. It's on the corner of Mayfield and Murray Hill and we buy nearly all our bread there. The crust is always happily between crisp and chewy, the insides are soft, and it's only $1.50 a loaf. These loaves could feed us for a week, though they usually don't last longer than a day in our apartment.

But Corbo's bakery isn't known for their great bread - it's a dolceria. They're famous for cannolis, make lemon Italian ice, and you can buy their cookies by the pound. It's mix and match, and should you be so overwhelmed by their massive selection that you are unable to make a choice, they have prepackaged boxes of assorted cookies. To make it easier on you, of course.

These are photos of a couple favorites - their almond cookie and their amaretti pine nut cookie. But if (hypothetically) I had left my wallet at home, was forced to dip into parking meter quarters and only had change for a single sweet, I would choose the lemon bar. This is a rock star of a cookie and I would have taken a photo for you, but it didn't quite make it to the photo shoot. Maybe next time.
