Pasticceria Papa in Haberfield service traditional, sweet and delicious Italian desserts.
Created using homemade recipes from Sicily Salvatore Papa opened his first store in Haberfield 13 years ago and is a favourite of the suburb.
Take the delights home or enjoy a sit down snack and hot drink in the cafe.
The Sicilians have sweet tooth-types covered just a hop west of the CBD. Panzerotti, cannoli, biscotti, all the traditional Italian baked goods are lined up in a totally mouthwatering display that will make you want to take one of everything home. Sit outside if you’re dining in – they do serve good pizza but we’d suggest going straight for dessert. Alternatively, stop by on your way from work and grab some profiteroles to impress dinner party guests at home. ...read more
Haven't been inside since the big renovation and refurbishment but I was pleasantly surprised by how fresh it all looks. Nice leather seating and lots of lighting. I was served by a happy young lady who was quick and efficient. I got some cakes to take away and they were full of fresh ricotta and vanilla cream, soft and super tasty.
What's not to love about Papa's? One of my favourite places in Sydney, there is such a huge range of cakes, Italian pastries & biscuits as well as savoury items. My favourite is of course the ricotta cheesecake. Classic is always best but the Nutella version is also amazing, filled with oozing nutella. The limited choc chip version was nice but not something I would go out of my way for. Also enjoyed their tiramisu as it was quite strong with coffee flavour & boozy! The paninis, especially the one with roast pork is delicious. They make a great coffee too.
This place is always pumping!! And if there isn't a line out the door and a bit down the street then you've come at a slow period! Of which there aren't many... They do sweeties, bread, coffee, tea, pizza, and some heavenly mixtures of cannoli's and other things. Just remember that if you do go in here, expect to end up needing help walking out again because there are just sooooooooooo many sweeties that you'll want to take with you! They also do handy gift baskets if you need a gift in a hurry (and that tastes divine). The staff have always been friendly and greet you with a smile, even though they are all running around at 100 miles a minute with serving people. Don't be afraid to ask questions about the pastries or bread. And if you speak Italian it's a bonus here. I don't, but lots of other's that come in seem to and there's some good natured chatting. I've had the coffee here previously and the soy milk was burnt, which is the only reason it's getting a 4 because theirread more
I've been to Pappa's three times already in the short space of a month so clearly I can't get enough of it! Its not a place for crazy, uniquely plated desserts but it's the go to for homemade, traditional Italian sweets. You can't help but get super excited just as you walk through the door with the long cabinet of cannoli, pastries, tarts and cakes. Everything comes with its generous dusting of icing sugar!
