“Amazing zeppole!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

The line was long, but service fast and efficient, could be friendlier though. The San Giuseppe zeppole and fruit tart my daughter chose were fantastic, both had a wonderful pastry cream not too sweet, and the zeppole had the traditional Sicilian cherries, I asked for extra. The bakery is under construction as they are expanding, it's a bit tight in there at moment, but their prices are right and the pastries exceptional! Much better quality and lower prices than their competitor across street, which we tried also and thought horrible. This place a must!!!

“Best Canolis ever! Filled only upon order.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Locals know that Modern pastry makes the BEST canolis in Boston. Filled only when you order, they are always crisp and delicious. Cookies, biscotti , "lobster tails", are so good, my relatives from California consider this place a pilgrimage .

“Modern Pastry Shop”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The best pastry shop in Boston. Cannolis made to order. It is small non touristy and family run in the Italian North End of Boston. Do go there when in Boston. visiting and a close stroll to the waterfront and the oldest neighborhood. Here in Boston.

“Sweet Offerings!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great place to go if you are in the North End or Medford Square. They have great offerings and it is just as good as Mike's Pastry!
