Piccione Pastry Shop Celebrates Birthday With Festivities

ST. LOUIS, MO/April 19, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) Piccione Pastry is celebrating its fourth birthday this week.

To mark the occasion, St. Louis’ premier Italian pastry shop in the Delmar Loop is offering special treats, discounts and drawings, and an epic showdown as participants take on the shop’s All-You-Can-Eat- Cannoli Contest.

“We are grateful for our loyal customers and dedicated staff that have already made Piccione Pastry a local favorite. It’s important for us to share this celebration with them, said Piccione Pastry Chef, Colleen McBryan.

“St. Louisans have requested a second all-you-can-eat cannoli showdown, and we are more than happy to oblige!”  McBryan added.

The shop’s All-You-Can-Eat- Cannoli Contest will take place on April 22nd, which marks the shop’s actual anniversary.  Cannoli lovers will battle to win free pastries for a year.  The contest is free and participants sign up in-store at the pastry counter for the 1 p.m. or 3 p.m. time slots.

All-You-Can-Eat- Cannoli Contest Rules:

  • Eat as many cannolis as you can in 2 minutes! 8 participants per time slot.
  • 1st place winners receive free pastries for a year*!
  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to your start time to get briefed on rules.
  • Otherwise your seat will be given to another participant on the wait-list.
  • Head to the table marked “CANNOLI EATING CONTEST”.
  • Cannolis counted towards final total: -Entire cannoli must be consumed (half eaten cannolis don’t count).
  • Can be crushed/crumbled to eat, but if left uneaten, it will NOT count towards total.

Guests who prefer to purchase pastries and lunch items in-store on April 22 will receive a mystery party favor.  In addition, patrons who spend $10 or more in-store can pull their own party favor from Piccione’s Mystery Grab-Bag to include free items, discounts and more.

Piccione Pastry first opened its doors on April 22, 2013. It’s the only late-night Italian pastry shop of its kind in St. Louis.  The shop features single-serve Italian desserts, rich Italian coffees, locally handcrafted gelato and sorbet and seasonal breakfast and lunch choices, including vegan, vegetarian, sugar-free and gluten-free options.

TOP 10 BAKERIES

ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) Top 10 Bakeries: do you know anybody that does not like baked desserts?  I don’t!  I know its my biggest weakness.  However, I tend to enjoy the junk baked goods like Little Debbie products.  Swiss Cake Rolls to be more specific.  However, don’t worry.  There are much better alternatives than store bought 20 year old baked desserts for your enjoyment.  Also there is nothing wrong with the taste of a Hostess Honey Bun, but some of the bakeries listed might not agree.

Missouri Baking Company, our #1 rated position has been in business since 1924 according to their Facebook page.  That is an impressive number.  Almost 100 years old and in the same family.  Can’t find those family traditions on every street corner.  Congratulations to Missouri Baking Company.  Keep up whatever it is that you’ve been doing for almost 100 years.
