The Scoop: Piccione Pastry opens today in The Loop

April 23rd 01:04pm, 2013



The array of food options in The Loop continues to grow. And the latest addition is an especially welcome treat for lovers of all things sweet. Today marks the official opening of Piccione Pastry, an Italian pastry shop located at 6197 Delmar Blvd., at the intersection of Delmar and Skinker Boulevards. As The Scoop reported last October, Piccione is a venture by Butler’s Pantry president Richard Nix Jr. and his wife Elizabeth.

The selection of single-serve Italian desserts at Piccione is impressive. Signature items include Italian-style donuts called bomboloni served with a dipping sauce of lemon curd, raspberry curd or chocolate sauce (pictured), as well as cannoli. The latter is available with a choice of nine different filling flavors, a gluten-free option and even an un-filled version called “chips and dips.” Piccione’s counter is filled with pastries and cakes like ricotta cheesecake, cream puffs, cassata cake and tiramisu, along with cookies of all shapes and sizes. Customers at the 40-seat eatery can enjoy the baked goodness with coffee drinks featuring Lavazza Italian coffee or an Italian soda.

Piccione is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday, and until 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Extended weekend hours are expected soon.
