“Don't get a Cannoli!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

I visited here and foolishly tried a cannoli. Granted I am from Boston and should have known better as I am a fan of the North End bakeries.
My first red flag was that the cannoli's were premade and sitting in the case. This of course makes the cannoli SOGGY! I asked if they had just made them up fresh... like they are going to say no? Well I bought one and of course it was soggy and nothing like a cannoli from Modern Pastry!
The cinnamon buns were good and the cookies good. My granddaughters got cupcakes and they were not that great.

“Love the bakery items and the sandwiches!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Everything sold here looks as good as it tastes! The cakes are delicious and beautifully presented. The sandwiches are made with Boars Head meats and cheeses and the Italian is my favorite at around $6, with a pickle. There is a cafe area to sit and eat, but I always get mine to go.

“Great”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

The bakery is second to none in the area. I highly recommend there cakes. They offer a few sandwiches for a lunch as well . But the sandwitches are ok at best.
