In the torrential downpour, we got of the cable Car past the Walgreen’s drug store and wandered to Angelo Brocato Ice Cream, the famous gelato eatery near City Park. Angelo Brocato was on my NOLA hit list for a while now not only for gelato, but for their Italian pastries.
Cucidati is an Italian fig cookie and the better version of the Nabisco Fig Newton. Boy have I been missing out. The soft, lightly sweet fig filling with a crumbly lightly sweetened exterior.
Peach gelato was THE BEST gelato I have ever eaten. The peach flavor was so fresh and a genuine bite of summer. I felt like was eating a perfectly ripened, sweet peach.
