New at Trinity Groves: Cake Vending Machine, Table-Side Pasta and Texas Cannolis

Trinity Groves launched as an exciting, entrepreneurial concept, and that creative energy still permeates everything the restaurant development does. That can be seen in its diverse tenets as well as unique offerings that continue to surprise and delight patrons each day. See below for the latest fun initiatives: Cake Bar’s whole cake vending machine and Saint Rocco’s buzzy new menu items.


Last year, Cake bar launched a vending machine to better serve its customers during the pandemic. The machine doled out slices 24 hours per day from the front of the shop, ensuring that sweet tooths could be satisfied at all hours and with minimal person-to-person contact. It’s been so popular that Cake Bar has just introduced another vending machine—except this one contains whole cakes.

The refrigerated machine will serve a variety of five-inch and eight-inch round cakes. The selection will rotate and feature customer favorites like Key Lime, Strawberry and Old Fashion Chocolate, so check back often to work your way through the menu, no matter the time of day.


Saint Rocco’s serves up delicious Italian-American cuisine, taking inspiration directly from the family dinner tables of Phil Romano and Executive Chef Jay Valley. Now, Chef Valley is introducing a couple of fun new items to the menu. First up is the Table-side Cacio e Pepe ($25), available nightly.

The fresh, cheesy and peppery pasta is finished right at the table and served in a giant Locatelli Romano cheese wheel. It looks great in photos, but only if you remember to take one before eating it all.

Follow that up with the new Texas Cannoli ($12). A large tube-shaped shell of deep fried pastry dough is filled with a sweet and creamy filling, and it’s served with a large wooden mallet, so you can break apart the shell and share with your tablemates. Order this eye-catching dessert for yourself, and then prepare for curious onlookers to do the same.
