You don't have to wait in a long line like the "most popular" bakeshop on the same street, and the canolis are just as good!

Best canolli's ever! We needed a sugar fix at aroun 9pm and we came across this pastry shop. The line up was out the door which I now know why!

I went with Modern over Mike's and didn't regret it. Most of the staff were speaking Italian when I entered. The language barrier hindered communication a bit, but eventually we were able to find some pastries that I loved. If you want fancy cannolis like at Mike's this is NOT your place, however, in general, their pastries are incredible. The cream puff, choclate cannoli, and macaroons were wonderful. The fruit tarts looked wonderful also.

In October, we ate here every morning. We had their pastries; layered shells filled with ricotta and cinnamon. Coffee and tea were great, and the staff was very friendly. Great displays of antique expresso and coffee machines!
