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

Yes. As you have seen others comment, you are near Mike's Pastry, but I would try the dessert here. After leaving, swing by Mike's and get a slice of Boston Cream Pie to go. It is AWESOME!
