Dessert In/Near West Hartford

Role play: If you survived eight days without leaven, legumes, corn syrup, etc. and lived in West Hartford, where would you go to indulge? Please don't laugh...I am 3/8 of the way through Passover and have cake cravings. Every year, per tradition, I break Passover with chocolate ice cream but this year I am looking for a really awesome dessert. I'm looking at a ten-mile radius. Any type of cuisine and price is fine. Sampler plates are a plus.

Thank you!

  1. I think I would go to Mozzicattos on Franklin Ave in Hartford and get a slice of ricotta cake. Or better yet, go with some friends and share a few things. Cheers!

      Oh, I'm bringing a friend! I am just clueless about dessert options.

        If you're looking for cake and want to take it home, try Your Just Desserts on Park Road. Otherwise, go for the variety at Mozzicattos and get a cappuccino to go with it.

    2. Pasticceria Italia in Bloomfield. Many, many types of different cake slices, cookies, cannolis. Fill a box. Happy Passover!

        I agree Rudysmom.....this place is awesome!....I've done exactly that on a few occasions...filled a box with an assortment

          Oh, how could I forget this place! I think this place closes at 7:00, and Passover ends at 8:08 PM so I need a place open at 8:09 PM.

      2. Elmwood Pastry Shop. The cannolis are to die for.
