We picked up some cannoli's while in the North End of Boston and they were great as they always are. We love coming back here.
I've heard the locals go to Bova's and the tourists go to Mike's. I don't care. We got cannoli at Mike's, and also a Florentine cookie, and were blown away at the perfection. Got the chocolate chip cannoli and it was nearly as good as the ones I make. Smooth and creamy filling and a crunchy pastry made a perfect... More
Very. We'll. known by the tourists, but there are others on the Hanover st that are nice, Modern pastry is also good &. Not always. So. Crowed w lines out the door! Don't go on vacation woks, or wends!! Can't always find a table, unless it's winter! Fun to go once!
Every type of pastry, cake, canoli that you could possibly imagine and good tea / coffee! I can't believe how cheap this place is given how large the portions are and how good the desserts taste!!!
never did understand why mikes gets the raves and long lines for what are actually just average italian pastries. they do have a very large and extensive selection. there are better bakeries in the north end. try one of the others and find out for yourselves.
You have to come here if you are visiting Boston. This place has the best pastries in the North End. There is a good reason this place always has the longest line.
You have to stop in and try something from here. Everything is fresh and the help was super friendly. Stop and try one of the fresh pastries. I wasn't disappointed and I doubt you will be either. FYI cash only.
Mike's is large and good for large crowds and is not bad but I prefer Modern Pastry at 257 Hanover across the street. They make cannolis to order and are a smaller family business.
Skip the lines and the food and know you will be happier for it - if this is your idea of a great cannoli, I suggest you stop purchasing pastry from the frozen food section of your grocery store
