This pastry shop was highly recommended and it lives up to what you hear. Most people take their pastries away but we stayed and had it with coffee. The selection was incredible and the pastry absolutely yummy.

We'd heard of Mike's pastry. I mean who hasn't? Would it live up to the hype? Thankfully, yes it did. They have a huge selection of dessert items. They even have a couple of gluten free options. The black and white cookie and whoopie pie were our gf finds! Yummy!!!!!!!

Some of the best Italian pastries we've ever had. Stopped by Sunday at noon and had a short wait. Went back after supper and lines were out the door. Well worth the wait. Everything we had was delicious. You gotta stop here if you're in Boston!

Daughter thought this was the best place for cannolis. I got the Boston cream pie slice and it was just ok. Son got their gelato, he liked it, but I thought it was nothing special. Can be crowded, but line moves fast. Actually, there really wasn't a line. Just start ordering with a staff when she says, "Next!"

There's a reason why there is a long waiting line in front of Mike's Pastry and that's because it's simply delicious! But still, be ready to wait at least 15 minutes when its busy.

Bountiful pastries, decent price and efficient service. If there's a line, don't be discouraged since it moves very quickly. Everyone raved about baked goods, gelato was okay.

On weekends (and even some weekdays) folks will be lined up down the street just for the chance to go in and give your cash (they don't take plastic) for one of their delicious cannolis. About 15 different flavors and other cakes and pastries. Fresh and delicious.

Mike's is a great pastry shop featuring a huge variety of Italian desserts. The cannoli are simply superb and come in many varieties. The lobster tails looked inviting, too. While always crowded, the very efficient staff keep things moving. Tables are available for eat in. Try the cappuccino with a treat. Give this place a try after dining in the... 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.
