1547 Hertel Ave in Buffalo / (716) 253-1115
The Pasta Peddler and Blackbird Sweets share a space at 1547 Hertel Ave. This is a great spot to check out right after the Horsefeathers winter market. After you get a mouth full of Pasta Peddler’s gourmet artisan pasta, sauce, and raviolis, plain old boring pasta from the supermarket just won’t cut it anymore. I love the red wine pasta and have been dying to sink my teeth into the stuffed hot pepper ravioli full of hot peppers, ricotta, mozzarella, provolone, asiago, onion, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Hello cheese! Their selection of seasoned salts can spice up (literally) any meal. Blackbird Sweets is owned and operated by Andrea Amodeo, a professional cake artist and serves up some scrumptious cupcakes and treats. Savor a cranberry orange white chocolate cupcake to give yourself a sugar rush that will help you finish your day of shopping on Hertel!
