St Honore cake memorable. A N Beach mainstay with generations as customers, many early Italians. Traffic usually a mess this close to Chinatown, so a car is not advised.

My husband and I split a Napoleon, and our kids (teens) each had the Fedora. The Italian cream was excellent, and all were decadent and delicious. Would like to try the biscotti sometime.

Late night snack of cookies and cake. Did not disappoint. It's located in little Italy near Chinatown - breakfast through late night.

We were happy to stop in for a treat with the family after a good day of walking (earning those calories). Everyone picked something different, which was a great way to try more of the amazing desserts you see in the case! That strawberry cheesecake...More

Stella Pastry has every Italian delight you could wish for. Their cannolli are fresh and fabulous. They have a few tiny tables where you can sit, but you have to be quick to grab one.

I came here for some bakery goodies to bring home to family & friends (and for me!) and was very happy with the excellent quality. I got a frosted brownie-not bad for $2.95 & difficult to find at most bakeries-and some chocolate covered cookies-2 styles....More

Cannoli come in two types, Siciliano and Napolitano. The Sicilian ones have a thick tube and sweet things inside. The ones from Naples are flaky and have creme inside. They are also called Creme Horns. These melt in your mouth and are hard to find...More

Stella's has a fabulous selection of baked goods and espresso bar. The service is friendly and welcoming and watching the chef putting together his creations is almost as enjoyable as eating them. I would return and enthusiastically recommend.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
