“best cannoli's in town boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

I'm from an area where finding cannoli's is the equivalent to finding a four leaf clover...eat them, enjoy them. the variety of flavors are great, workers are prompt and answered all of our questions, reasonable prices. great bakery!

“Try it but bring cash.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Everyone seems to have a favorite for sweets in Boston. Is this the best? I can't say for sure but its worth a try. Our group of six walked into an open table at 10am on July 4th and had a great time.

“Yummy cannoli!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Stopped here to get dessert to go--too full after lunch! We got a florentine cannoli which has some almond flavor in the crust. We ate it after our dinner of lunch leftovers and it was delicious! Wish we had picked out some other desserts as well!

“Average at best!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

We had the carrot cake, traditional cupcake and a chocolate cake and were not impressed. The cakes were dry and the cupcake was overloaded with frosting. After sitting down at a table to eat we were told by a rather rude employee that the tables were for waitress orders. Nowhere was it indicated the tables were only for that!! Many other customers who ordered at the counter also sat down and were told the same thing....needless to say no one got up! Mike's Pastery was a big disappointment.

“Almost as good as my homemade cannolis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Because so many people love my homemade cannolis when ever we travel we try the towns cannolis. My husband says my cannolis are still better but Mike's Pastry is second. I enjoyed them because I didn't have to make them :) They had sooo many flavors it is difficult to select.
If you cant wait to sink your teeth into your pastry once you get through the long line but moves quickly, you can go outside and eat your pastry while standing on the sidewalk along with the crowd. This made it fun as we all stood around shoving cannolis into our mouths and asking, "what kind did you get?" Mike's Pastry had soooo many other delicious desserts that aren't getting their credit. Whatever you purchase at Mike's Pastry will be divine so much so for us my husband traveled the distance from the Westin ($20 taxi round trip) to get more. Worth every penny!
