The BEST Lobstertail EVER!

Mike's a staple in the little Italy section of Boston...with almost 20 different kinds of cannolis, my favorite is Pistachio, and too many traditional Italian pastries to mention. Always a line out the door and CASH ONLY!

Skip this overrated tourist trap. Food is not really that fresh, and certainly not authentic. There are much better pastries elsewhere in North Beach (especially right across the street!). The lines are long, but that is only because people are sheep. The cannoli come in tons of different varieties, but they are all pre-made and ready to go for the... More

This place had a line out the door on the chilly Sunday evening we dined in the North End. The line moved quick and we were quickly inside the sweet smelling, bustling and old fashioned pastry shop renowned by locals and tourists alike. We partook in the traditional Cannolis and we're not disappointed. Delicious, light, rich and crispy. Go for... More

We stopped here before heading home after a long weekend in Boston. The perfect ending! Grabbed a box of cannoli to bring home. The place was mobbed, which I heard they always are. The lines move fast and it gives you some time to study the choices. We settled on chocolate mousse, chocolate ricotta, and pistashio. We also got one... More

I stopped here on the recommendation of a Boston friend. Excellent cannoli AND Boston Cream Pie! Usually I don't like cannoli, but this one was excellent. The shell was so crispy and the filling was smooth and creamy. THEY ONLY ACCEPT CASH, so be prepared for that when you stop by!

From all the good reviews read here, I was really looking forward to go to mikes pastry. Well, it wasn't exactly what I expected. No question, the canelloni filled with all kinds of cremes in different flavors are tasty, but still it's not more than average. S'mores wasn't mine, either. I didn't try the cakes, which looked delicious. Sad, but... More

Our friends highly recommend Mike’s. We could not believe how many people were waiting in line to order – the lines went very fast. The women in front of me in line recommended Pistachio Cannoli – by far our favorite. The selection was huge, so we could not see the pastry options with the huge crowd. There were 17 types... More

I do not like cannolis unless they are from mike's. Oh my goodness. They are so fresh and creamy. Sweet and the texture is perfect. Not too airy and not too heavy. The cannoli it self is crunchy, fresh and just enough sweetness that it tastes like heaven. There are other things to eat there besides cannolis but its sooo... More

We went here on the recommendation of my stepdaughter and ALL of her friends (in college in Boston). After a local pizza, we walked a few blocks to Mike's. On looking in the window, and seeing the line extending just to the door, we had second thoughts, but there was considerable pressure to try, so we did. Good call. First,... More

We drove in circles around Little Italy for about 40 min and found no parking but were determined to try these cannolis. I hopped out and ran in to grab a sampler box for everyone in my party. The bakery was insanely crowded and it's pretty much mass chaos when you walk in. The cannolis were ok but being from... More
