Wonderful!!!!

Awesome cannoli's. Not expensive. So many varieties to choose from. This is a well known pastry shop so it is really crowded. They have a good system with getting you in and out quickly, so don't let the crowds deter you. It's crowded because it is yummy!!

Where else do you get a Cannoli made of Florentine cookie?! Mike's Pastry has delicious pastry cream and great Cannoli crunch. Yum! Definitely worth a visit if around the Paul Revere's house.

Nothing bad, excellent Cannoli, Lobster tails and the best Chocolate Chip Cheesecake! Weekends can be very crowded, out the door line, but it the line moves quicker than you'd think. Weekday's at lunch time has less crowds. Very North End feel!

Bring cash and lots of it! Not because it is so expensive, but simply because of the abundance of choices! They only accept cash payment. We purchased a cheesecake slice and a whoopie pie. Carried them around all over Boston, 2 airports, and a plane ride later we enjoyed the taste of Boston at home! They were perfectly intact even... More

I absolutely love Mike's Pastry canolis. Everytime I go, I always end up buying a box of canolis. They are just soooo delicious! I totally recommend going if you have a chance!

After everyone raving about Mike's cannolis it was the biggest letdown in the north end. Very touristy. Long lines. And very average deserts. Would pass.

Over the years we have enjoyed getting pastries & cookies from Mike's. Everything that we have had is generally OK and good, but not many items have been excellent. The cannolis, ricotta cheese pie and pignolis are always good, but we tried the tiramisu once and it was terrible. Be prepared for long lines during busy times and come with... More

This place is to die for!! We went here on recommendation from our hotel staff and it did not disappoint. The cannolis are so good. They have several different flavors as well. The serving sizes are huge so you can get different stuff and share to try different things. We did have the gelato here as well but I wouldn't... More

If you visit Boston, you MUST stop at Mike's Pastries. Super fun bakery with tons of delicious options. Fun to see the twine hanging from the ceiling for the white pastry boxes to be wrapped with. Tiramisu was the BEST I've ever had. Was in Boston with my best friend & we had to go back to Mike's TWICE.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood 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.
