A huge warehouse dedicated to the much-loved Sicilian sweet treat.
August 12, 2020
UPDATE: AUGUST 12, 2020 — Cannoleria is currently offering its ricotta-filled treats — including DIY cannoli kits — for pickup from some of its stores, as well as delivery across most of metro Melbourne. To order, head over here.
Fans of cannoli rejoice, because Melbourne is home to a massive dedicated cannoli factory by way of the Cannoleria crew. Yep, the much-loved dessert producer has moved into spacious new digs at Heidelberg West, setting up shop a couple of suburbs away from sibling company That's Amore Cheese. The space means there's a whole lot more room — 500 square metres, to be exact — for the team to pump out those signature Sicilian sweet treats, featuring crunchy pastry tubes piped full of fresh ricotta.
The factory expansion comes as demand for Cannoleria's cult Italian treats continues to boom, with people flocking to get their mitts on the all-natural, preservative-free desserts. The group's got four other popular retail stores under its belt — at South Melbourne Market, Preston Market, Watergardens Shopping Centre and Highpoint Shopping Centre — in addition to regular pop-ups and a catering arm.
As well as allowing Cannoleria to up production, the factory allows for even more experimentation, too. There are also plans to open an on-site eatery, which'll serve up lunches, coffee and, of course, plenty of that freshly-made cannoli. We'll be sure to keep you posted.
