Incredibly busy but fast friendly service and a wonderful bakery. We visited the Little Italy location and were very satisfied.

My sisters had threatened me if I didn't go to Mike's, so I rode the T from the Sheraton Boston to the North End (Hanover Street) and then walked to Mike's. They had way too many to choose from, so I stuck to original and hazelnut. No fireworks (both my sisters apparently have fireworks go off when they eat them),... More

After many referrals we stopped in here and picked up dessert for later, just being in the store was an experience in of itself. So many Options. Great for dessert or breakfast the next day!

A friend who had lived in Boston told us Mike's was the best bakery in town. One trip proved that to be the case. While they have a large range of baked goods, cannolis are their specialty. The variety is enormous but the common denominator is the wonderful crust! Crisp and light the perfect compliment to the delicious fillings. Try... More

Mike's is like an alter for lovers of traditional Italian pastries. If you eat at The Daily Catch, you can't help but stare across the street & plan dessert. There are dozens of options so take your time, but definitely try a cannoli.

A trip to Boston's Italian district is not complete without a stop here for cannolis. Don't be intimidated by the lines. It's well worth it.

Came to mike's (recommended by a friend) twice on my trip. Once on a Saturday morning and again on a Monday morning. Both times I was the only one there. I kept hearing about the big lineups but I was REALLY lucky. Staff very friendly. Cannoli choices are immense...hazelnut was my fav. Homemade raspberry gelato was so good. Also...the black... More

A lovely part of town with the bustle of people walking and enjoying Boston. Entering Mike's Pastry there is a huge line up which adds to the excitement of all the colourful cakes and pastries in the display cases. It allows you to see what others have purchased and what you are going to try. The counter service women are... More

Overly priced and not amazing like others say. The best cannoli is the nutella flavoured one. Worth it if you are nearby.

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.
