Marzullo's in New Hyde Park: la dolce vita
There are as many reasons to visit Marzullo's Bakery & Cafe as there are sweets. Current favorite: cream puffs.
They're fragile and fabulous. The fillings include great cannoli cream, hazelnut, chocolate, tiramisu/coffee, classic pastry cream and airy whipped cream. These little beauties are $10 per pound. How many you get depends on the filling. After all, whipped cream is lighter.
I've been a fan of Marzullo's since tasting the bakery's grand St. Joseph's sfingi and zeppole. Although the Feast of St.Joseph is over, these pastries are still made. They're a very well-spent $2.75 each.
