There are several pastry shops in Hanvover Street but this one if for sure the best. Canolli's are excellent. Also try the cappucino!

Had my first canolli ever at Modern this week and it was delicious! I tried one from Mike's Pastry later in the day and it just didn't compare to Modern. The service was also exceptional at Modern. Can't wait to go back during my next visit to Boston!

This place does a fantastic job at delivering quality italian desserts in the north-end in a cozy environment. Skip the Mike's crowded, tourist trap!

My hotel recommended this as a can't miss place in Boston, and they couldn't have been more right. They told me to try the Lobster Tail. Me, thinking it was seafood, went over to find that it was a desert. Delicious crispy croissant (sounds like cracking a lobster when you crack it open) with a thin doughy layer, then a ridiculous amount of cream. I'm not one for cream filled anything because the sugar twitches the roof of my mouth. However, this lobster tail was quite th opposite--proof they use natural ingredients. Can't miss Modern Pastry. Definitely can't miss the lobster tail.

The pastries here are great. They are all delicious and the selection is vast. You can not find a better place to get an assortment of Italian cookies.
