As Easter approaches, one of the most popular delicacies in Italian culture will be in high demand. Italian rainbow cookies are small, sweet treats decorated in the colors of the Italian flag – green, red, and white. Many locally-owned Italian outposts offer their own versions of the cookie, which is perfectly paired with an espresso-based beverage. Read on to see where to get the best Italian rainbow cookies in Hoboken and Jersey City.

Shoppers can pick up Italian cheeses, freshly brewed coffee, and more at this Hoboken mainstay.

Mix and match a $2.50 cookie with a bombole, croissant, or muffin.
