Mike's Pastry

Nominated for: BEST Cannoli

Mike's Pastry 300 Hanover St Boston MA (617) 742-3050

The streets of Boston's North End have been in no small part defined by the ongoing legacy of Annette and Mike, their ancestors and enormous extended family and the spirit and inspiration brought to the North End of Boston by this neighborhood-defining family. The Coffee Shop At Mike's Pastry You will notice as you enter Mike's, that our front lobby is basically a cafe. Here you can sit and enjoy table service, along with any of your selection of Mike's goodies along with an espresso, a caffe latte, cappuccino or just a simple cup of tea. The room seats 50 people comfortably, so you don't need to worry about waiting, but expect lots of company, as the store bustles from open to close with our daily clientèle. That's the part of the fun and unique charm of an Italian coffee shop!

The pistacho macaroons and lobster tails are fantastic.

Mike's Pastry has insane cannolis - I get a couple every time I go there. Every single pie I've tried there I loved; even a few surprises, like their blackberry pie! Mike's may be a little pricey but trust me, it's worth every penny!

LOVE the chocolate dipped cannoli! Big enough for two - but you won't want to share!

Lobster tails are literally to die for. I would come here every day if I wasn't afraid to be fat.

A bit of a cliche, but still amazing, Mike's is easily the most popular pastry shop in Boston, which can be it's downfall at times because it gets very crowded, but even at it's busiest it's worth the wait. but it really shines during the off peak hours when you can sit down with a nice coffee and a canoli or b peanut butter brownie(my favorite)
