Sweet spot: Cossetta's opens pastry shop


As Cossetta's Italian Market and Pizzeria's makeover and renovation project comes to a close, the iconic downtown St. Paul eatery on Friday opened its new pastry shop, WCCO reports.

Most of the new shop was imported from Italy, including the marble, chairs and the pastry cases.

"Finally!" one fan said on the restaurant's Facebook page. "Can't wait to try everything!"

For Cossetta owners, development of the "Pasticceria" meant four years of trips to Italy, and work with Italian architect Lino Finazzi, the restaurant said in a press release.

Polished Italian “Francia Rosso” red marble from Tuscany was imported and reassembled piece by piece for a countertop to showcase the pastrie, gelato and a gleaming espresso maker.

The Pasticceria will offer a grand array of pastries made on site, including apple crumb pie and “Amerena – a dense chocolate cake studded with tart amarena cherries cloaked in waves of white chocolate and accented with airy macar," the restaurant says.
