      exactly what you find in a bakery or cafe for breakfast in Italy - north south and central - cornetti , cannoli etc

        I can't remember specific names, but I know that Enfield Town in North London has a number of proper Italian pastry shops. I would have to talk to someone to gets names though. Otherwise Italia Uno on Charlotte St generally stocks a couple of the bread-y sort of things and they almost always have Italian brioche, but none of it is really amazing. Their cannoli are excellent and homemade by a guy in his house, but they get very soggy when they sit. I've had truly excellent ones and I've had terrible ones there. It's completely luck based.
