Continuing our food exploration of Rome, we headed down towards Camp de Fiori Markets. On the way, we came across a cute cake shop which had a wide array of delectable sweets and pastries beautifully lined up in the large window displays….I guess it was time for a cake break.

We decided to try a few cakes – a green pistachio almond tart, lemon tart and a sfogliatelle.

The green pistachio tart was soft and had a lovely pistachio aroma and it had a thin layer of lemon sauce, which really complemented the pistachio flavour.

The lemon tart was nice and creamy and the citrus flavour wasn’t too sour, it had a balanced, mellow lemon tang.

The sfogliatelle pastry was amazing. It had an amazing crunch to it as there were so many layers of crispy pastry enveloping the filling, which was a light, citrus flavoured semolina  & ricotta filling.

We liked the cake shop so much that we went there again the next day…
