Court Pastry Shop is an Italian pastry shop founded by the Zerilli family in 1948. They specialize in homemade pastries, cookies, and cakes which they make fresh daily. They also sell homemade Italian ices. Unlike many pastry shops, they make and bake each and every cannoli shell by hand before hand-piping in the filling!
