Took the family to the north end of Boston for some authentic Italian food. Following dinner and after a walk to create some needed space in our stomach's we headed to Mike's Pastry. The line was not as long as I had read about, the servers were great and the variety was amazing. After downing our favorites I went back... More

Long time institution in the North End of Boston. Just a really good desert place. The main feature is stuffed home made cannoli. Also many other deserts. This is our go to desert place either after a nice Italian meal, or while walking the Freedom Trail. Not to be missed experience in Boston

We filled a box to go. Boston Cream pie, cannoli, fudge cake, brownies. Everything was amazing, and the prices very reasonable. As we carried the string-wrapped Mike's box through Boston, we were the envy of every drooling tourist along the Freedom Trail. Divine!

We got several pastries from Mike's after seeing several people carrying boxes all around from there. Since we passed by the shop the day before and it was near, we decided to go check it out. The line was out the door and 4 or 5 lines inside. We came away with delicious cream puffs, napoleons, tiramisu and chocolate cake.... More

There is a big variety of pastries at Mike's, but a couple of things rub me the wrong way at this place; the service is stressful and not personal, and there are no prices on anything. My rating is lower because of this, but the pastries are good. Not my idea of a nice overall experience though. Go to Modern... More

OMG The best canoli i have ever hsd. The pistachio one was delicious. I wish i bought a choc chip or others to try! The lobster claw was equally tasty. Plan to be in line but once you are up, know what you want. It is hard to see the full selection in the cases due to so many people... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
