A’Putia sends word that they have started serving brunch, and have added savory dishes to their lineup of authentic Sicilian pastries at their new 5th Avenue cafe. We’ve tried the cannoli (and yes, they are delicious) and owner-chef Giacomo goes to extreme lengths to procure ingredients like sheep’s milk for the cannoli from Italy. They also have quiches, panini and focaccia, tea and coffee, as well as soups, and gelato is coming shortly.
If you’ve never been, stop by for a true taste of Sicily in Park Slope. All pastries and cakes are baked at their bakery on 3rd Avenue and supply the 5th Avenue and Manhattan locations daily. You can order cakes or pastries for any special event as well.
A’Putia is located at 179 5th Avenue, between Berkeley and Lincoln, 718-789-2466. Hours are Monday-Friday 8am-8pm, and Saturday-Sunday 9am-8pm.
