Alforno Bakery & Cafe

Once the operators landed a cozy coffee shop and bakery, they expanded offerings to include pastries such as matcha and white chocolate mousse entremets, handcrafted chocolate bonbons, and the famous tiramisu, a nod to their Italian heritage and the Berloni family recipe. If savoury is more your forte, the pasta dishes and oven-baked pizzas are to die for.
