Jean-Jacques is one of my favorite places in Richmond, VA. After moving here from a larger city, where in my neighborhood alone there were 5 mom & pop bakeries, the discovery of J-J made me happy indeed!
I'm typically not a baker, thus I need a good "go to" for desserts or brunch sweets. So J-J is my pinch-hitter for all things sugar-laced that I might serve my guests. The cannoli's are seriously to die for. Crispy, melt-in-your-mouth homemade cannoli shells stuffed w/chocolate chip cannoli cream and chocolate dipped on each end.
Thus, I convinced a friend who was in town this last weekend to pop into J-J with me for a cannoli (also HER fav!) And she concurs w/my opinion that their cannoli's are the best she's ever had. I stepped out of my usual and had the cream horn, which like everything else, melts in your mouth and leaves you wanting more. :)
If you haven't checked it out, I highly encourage you to do so!
