Everything in there is worth a try. My favorites are cannoli's lobster tails and the eclair. They all have the most decadent, magical cream filling and the perfect flaky chewy crust. The last time I visited I discovered the Oreo cannoli. We stopped a few days later on the way home for a box of just Oreo cannoli's. Yup. Do... More

So the line spilled out the door and down the sidewalk but since hubby was standing in a dinner line I decided to go for it. Line moved quickly (inside it split into at least 6 different lines). Best tiramisu I've ever had!!!! Everything we purchased was delicious!

We tried the original cannoli at $3.50 each and they were well worth the price. They were huge! They were also very delicious and filled with ricotta (a very authentic Italian filling for cannoli). We were so full after eating the cannoli that we skipped lunch! Highly recommended.

Must have cannoli's!!! So many flavors to choose from. Also we had the Strawberry Cheesecake and it was creamy and delicious. Loved the sponge cake bottom better than regular graham cracker crust.

Went earlier in the day when there weren't any lines. Cheesecake and canoli were the one of the best i've had. If you go later in the day the lines are very long.

I AM a local - and I shop here regularly - for years! I'm not a canoli person, but people love them here. All my out of town guests love them. But I am a huge Italian cookie fan. I have gotten many, many people addicted to their butter and champagne cookies. They are always fresh and flavorful. I am... More

I've taken these cannolis on the plane so many times its practically tradition. We've been going to Mikes for as long as I can remember, and they're just as amazing as the first time. Shop is always crowded and is cash only. I recommend grabbing them to go and finding someplace nice to sit by the water and eat.

Went here after dinner on Salem Street. It was a great place to visit. Lots of great pastries, including carry cake and cannolis,to choose from. Definitely worth a visit when in Boston

Seems every other person in Harvard Square has a Mike's Pastry Box -- gotta confess I was underwhelmed. -- the famous cannoli lack the great taste or freshness you'd expect --

You can get mike's pasties from all around the Boston area without standing in line for hours. Same quality and just as fresh. They are mass produced. Smaller shops have great quality also. Wait forever if you want to say it is from Mike's.

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.
