The lines are out the door for this place. We actually came back after dinner on the North End to get some delicious desserts to take back to our hotel. Our cheesecake and teramisui was great. The blueberry muffins we took home for breakfast were not. All and all it was a must do.

Unbelievable cannoli! My favorite is the chocolate chip. Lines are always long but move reasonably quickly. Must try!

Great Italian pastry shop in the middle of the quarter. Divine cakes delicious coffee. This obligatory visit to Boston. One problem is the need to stand in line a lot.

Everything in there is worth a try. My favorites are cannoli's lobster tails and the eclair. They all have the most decadent, magical cream filling and the perfect flaky chewy crust. The last time I visited I discovered the Oreo cannoli. We stopped a few days later on the way home for a box of just Oreo cannoli's. Yup. Do... More

So the line spilled out the door and down the sidewalk but since hubby was standing in a dinner line I decided to go for it. Line moved quickly (inside it split into at least 6 different lines). Best tiramisu I've ever had!!!! Everything we purchased was delicious!

We tried the original cannoli at $3.50 each and they were well worth the price. They were huge! They were also very delicious and filled with ricotta (a very authentic Italian filling for cannoli). We were so full after eating the cannoli that we skipped lunch! Highly recommended.

Must have cannoli's!!! So many flavors to choose from. Also we had the Strawberry Cheesecake and it was creamy and delicious. Loved the sponge cake bottom better than regular graham cracker crust.

Went earlier in the day when there weren't any lines. Cheesecake and canoli were the one of the best i've had. If you go later in the day the lines are very long.

I AM a local - and I shop here regularly - for years! I'm not a canoli person, but people love them here. All my out of town guests love them. But I am a huge Italian cookie fan. I have gotten many, many people addicted to their butter and champagne cookies. They are always fresh and flavorful. I am... More

I've taken these cannolis on the plane so many times its practically tradition. We've been going to Mikes for as long as I can remember, and they're just as amazing as the first time. Shop is always crowded and is cash only. I recommend grabbing them to go and finding someplace nice to sit by the water and eat.

Thank Hartley K

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.
