The line goes around the block - for a reason. The famous cannolis come in over a dozen flavors, but make sure to have a back up flavor in mind since they sell out of flavors quickly. It's a tourist spot, but a perfect detour...More

They have such a great variety of pastries. The one in downtown Boston is crazy busy. We did not even attempt to go to that one cuz the line went outside and we did not want to take any time away from our sightseeing. But...More

This place is hectic and incredibly popular, particularly with tourists (as I've been told). There were lines (six deep) out the door for the cannoli and/or gelato. They are eye-poppingly huge and very attractive to look at, but perhaps one shouldn't eat dinner before getting...More

I have tried other places for cannolis in the North End, but none compare to Mike's. Yes, there are very long lines, but so worth it. (And, the lines move quickly.) The Florentine cannoli is the best!

I'm not in favor of desserts but I must say that it's one of my daughters favorite and her friends. Seeing the long lines standing outside the shop to get a box with Mikes pastry is a common thing. Also it would be strange to...More

I was so excited to FINALLY make it to Mike's pastry after working in the Boston area for 1.5 years. Was disappointed. The pastries were ok. If you like super sweet, then this is the place for you!!

This seems to be a Boston staple and there were LOTS of sweets to choose from! Everyone was carrying around a box from Mike's. Definitely worth a stop!!

We love Mike's. It's a great stop to make while in the North End. Cash only, have it ready to go. Good luck deciding what pastry to take away!

Get in the line to the right once inside or you can't see the case on that side. We are not big pastry eaters, but we ordered the Florentine cannoli because it was highly recommended. It was delicious! The cannoli shell on that one is...More

This place was all hype. Possibly the greasiest cannoli and worst filling I have ever had. I really don't know why everyone says to go here?! I guess a tourists trap.

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

Agreed with previous two responses. Line around the building and shoulder to shoulder lines on the inside. Parking - I can't even imagine. Good luck!
