“Holy Cannoli!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Before my niece and I went to Boston I was told by several people to be sure and visit Mike's. So, we found the place early in the evening and there were a number of people present and enjoying their pastries. We decided to find a restaurant for dinner and then go back to Mike's later for dessert. When we returned around 8:30, the line was out the door and down the street. But it moved super fast! We each got two cannoli's to take back to our hotel. Which meant we had cannoli's for two nights. They were amazing! I am not ruined for cannoli in Texas. I'll never have another from the Whole Foods bakery because it could never measure up. Go! Eat cannoli's!

“Avoid the lines”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

We went to Mike's during a vacation to the east coast after a recommendation from friends. We went before dinner there was a line out the door. After reading another person's review we followed the advice and walked in avoiding the line. The staff on the right side can fill your order you don't need to stand in the line.

“Oh My Good Eats!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

The cannoli! The lines! The Boston Cream Pie! We opted for Mike's Pastry over Modern Pastry--you will probably get amazing bakery either way, but you MUST stop at one!! There are a wide variety of yummies to choose from--I got the peanut butter cannoli and the Boston cream pie, both of which were AMAZING!!

Coming to the North End for the first time, I was told to try the cannolis. They are very good, but long lines.

“worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

OK, you are going to wait in line. But, the line moves fast, and be ready to order when you get up at the counter. we had a few cannoli's, then turned around and bought a dozen to go. They were insanely good, and super expensive but this was the best i have ever had anywhere. The hazelnut and chocolate were great, the shell was tender and the filling was light even though the cannoli had to weigh a pound.
