T Cavallero & Sons

Tommaso and his wife Sarina Cavallero opened their Footscray sweet store in 1956, just in time for the Melbourne Olympics. Tommaso’s father was a pastry chef back in Italy, and now his son Carmelo runs the store – and he hasn’t changed a thing. “Our secret to success is simplicity,” Carmelo says. You can still order a fresh cannoli casing, choose your filling flavour, and they’ll pipe you a fresh one out the back. Italian biscuits pastine di mandorla, amaretti and croccantini are always favourites, too. It takes for people to make every canoli, and with Carmelo carrying on a 130-year-old family tradition, you know they’re made with love.
