Best Canoli I have ever had, it was creamy and delicious. I ordered a few macaroon cookies too! I really wanted one of everything.

Pastries here are the best. Haven’t been here in a while, prices are definitely up. Can’t go wrong with anything. Cannoli’s, ricotta pie, pistachio cookies. All phenomenal. I highly recommend going here.

There is a reason the line stretches around the block! While there are other treats there, you go for the cannoli. Every variety you can imagine!

Their cannolis are easily shared by two people if you're in a sharing mood (we weren't). We went back a second time just because . . . . The wait can be long (think 30+ minutes), but it is a must do, judging by the...hordes of people carrying their 'Mike's Pastry' white boxes back to their hotels, cars, whatever. This is a take-out place and there are no tables in the shop. I'm glad we experienced it; the multiple flavors we tried were delicious. Also glad we live on the west coast so we can't be tempted too often.More

Well we waited in line for a while n bought a cannoli n 2 pieces of Boston cream pie. What a disappointment. The cannoli shell was stale (which is so surprising given the volume they were selling) and the Boston cream pie filling was frozen!!!...Which to me tells me they r frozen pies!!! Would never go back. The only positive thing is the cannoli was only $5 n the pie $4.More

World famous bakery lives up the the hype. Random long crowds through out the day. I always get the lobster tail, some danishes, cannolis. The pistachio, chocolate, espresso cannolis are my favs. Don’t be scared away by the long lines outside and indoors. They have...a great system and you’ll be out in 10 mins tops. The location is cash only and no where to stand insideMore

We saw the line and so many people walking around with their Mike’s pastry boxes so we decided to give it a try. What a disappointment! Mediocre at best. I tried an Oreo cheesecake that was tasteless and a creme puff that had a shell...that was heavy instead of light and fluffy. The weird texture pudding style filling was just bland. So disappointed in this place!!More

While walking the Freedom Trail we saw tons of people carrying Mike's Pastry boxes and decided to search it out. There was a bit of a line, and it took about 15 mins to get to the front to order, but it was worth it!...We got a pistachio cannoli, sfogliatella, tiramisu, and Boston cream pie, and all were fantastic. So happy to have found this place!More

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
