Great bakery, but very popular with tourists. Expect a line. Fantastic cannoli, cookies, and florentines. Amazing marzipan creations.

My boyfriend and I decided to walk out to Mike's when we ere in Boston two weeks ago. We were having dinner in the north end anyway so we were in the vicinity. It was definitely worth the walk. All of the treats looked so good it took us ages to choose. The place was packed, even in the middle... More

I was told to go to Mike's and had high expectations. I walked in the door and it was slightly crowded but it didn't take long to get waited on. Didn't find the staff to be very pleasant at all. In fact, half had just been in the back for a party of some sort. There was a big selection... More

This was the 1st time I've been to Mike's so I asked the girl behind the counter (she had an accent - Italian maybe?) which Cannoli was the most popular/purchased. She looked at me like an idiot, not saying a word, and waved her hand and walked away ( bro - not everyone works at a pastry shop). I ordered... More

We stopped in after dinner, lucked out and was able to grab a table! Cannolis and chocolate cake were amazing! And the coffee was perfection! Locals poured in and out, greeting friends along the way! Be prepared with your order and don't be shy, speak up!

I had to try a Cannoli, especially after I saw all the people walking on the streets with a Mike's pastry box. Cannoli I had was excellent (think it was the Florentine), but I also asked for a recommendation and the woman serving me recommended the Boston Cream Puffs! They were out of this world. The cannoli was good, but... More

Wow. Just Wow. If you have a sweet craving, Mike's Pastry will fix it. Even if you don't buy one of the delectable treats you have to pop in to the store just to see them.

We had a choc chip cannoli, which was great but too full and the pastry was too light and soft. The cheesecake was good, but a red velvet cupcake proved too sweet for my 12-yo brother who is addicted to sugar.

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
