Hello all , I just got a job in Soho (around Spring Street) and I would like to get some good Italian desserts after work one day. I don't get out until around 5pm , so the bakery would have to stay open till after that time in order for me to be able to go. Can anyone suggest any good bakeries to go too. I went walking around little italy on a break and I saw a few , but I didn't know which ones to go too. Thank you.

I don't know where to get Italian ones specifically, but Dean and Deluca and Balthazar are good places in SoHo to get some baked delights.

If you want a good slice, Rays on Prince street is very good. I went there all the time for lunch when I worked in SoHo.

I think the last place I''d look for good Italian fare would be Little Italy. When I drive or pedal through I feel sorry for the tourists sitting alfresco with their elbows sticking to the Plexiglas covered tables. I suppose Ferrara's on Grand would have some interesting looking stuff. Be careful of the freezer burn. Cafe Roma just to the east on the corner might have some decent cannoli if you can tolerate the belligerent help.

i suggest you DONT Dessert.. Or you may end up to FAT and not fit in SOHO and lose your job...I am not joking. Carbs are addicting.

It's a bit of a hike from SoHo, but the granddaddy of all NYC Italian pastry places is Veniero's on 11th between 1st and 2nd Avenues. Yes, it's very touristy, but their pastries are great.

Ferrara's in Little Italy isn't bad. But I don't know if it's worth dealing with the tourists.

Ceci Cela at 55 Spring is fantastic, but they don't have their hours on their website.
