It was my first ever visit to Haberfield and l loved it! I was diggin' the retro Italian/Aussie suburban vibe of the area. One of the best things about Haberfield is that it is home to the renowned Pasticceria Papa.
Pasticceria Papa is a Cafe/Patisserie located on Ramsay Street that sells a wide range of beautiful pastries, bread and one of the best cheesecakes in town! The place feels and looks as retro and classic as the area.
I was so overwhelmed & in awe of the exquisite display of pastries and cakes. But there was one particular cake that Mrs Ramen Raff and I were determined to have. It is none other than their baked ricotta cheesecake.

We first heard about the popular baked ricotta cheesecake from our friend the G-Man and later, from other bloggers. It did live up to its hype. The ricotta cheesecake is covered with a pastry-like crust. The use of ricotta takes the cheesecake experience to a whole different level of marvel. A slice is quite heavy (even for me) but the taste is amazing and the texture is smooth.
I'm a big fan of gelatos and I could not resist the sight of displayed gelatos. I picked the nocciola (hazelnut) gelato. The taste stays true to the name . It was milky, creamy, and full of real hazelnut goodness!
Their ricotta cannoli is now my favourite canoli. The shell was perfectly crunchy and the ricotta filling was amazing. It was pure indulgence and awesomeness in a shell! The sprinkled crushed almond nuts added an extra crunchy texture that made the canoli more exciting to munch on.
If you haven’t been to Pasticceria Papa, then you better head there soon! Warning: a bite of their baked ricotta cheesecake will get you hooked. My afternoon tea at Pasticceria Papa was very yummy for my tummy! How’s yours?
