This is a Boston "institution" and I can see why! Cannoli and Boston Cream Puffs were my favorites--both fresh and delicious. Don't be worried if you see a long line, service is fast and efficient. Remember it's cash only.

Come here for dessert after a great Italian meal down the street. Tons of different selections. We ordered the Oreo cheesecake, carrot cake and chocolate mousse cake. All were fantastic. Carrot cake wasn't too sweet and mouse cake was light and fresh. Lots of people on there! If you are a fan of cannolis this place is for you.

Having heard sooooo much about Mike's Cannoli's we added this Boston Treasure to our Boston Bucket List and what a joy! Amazing selection of beautiful mouth watering pastries, and sooooo many to choose from! And a great price for such quality. The location was easy to find just up from the water side. They have a little cafe seating area... More

Mike's has the best cannolis in a loud, bustling environment. Keep your cash handy because it's Cash Only and the lines (while long) move quickly.

Mike's Pastry is a must place to go when you are in Boston. Consistently good quality and their cannoli is to die for. Worth the wait but it's less busy during the day so go then if you can.

No wonder this treasure trove of pastries and other delectable desserts is open till 2 am! What flavor of cannoli tickles your fancy? - hazelnut, chocolate, or ... or? Mike's Pastry does brisk business into the wee small hours. There is a bustling vibe of gobsmacked newcomers alongside the customers who already know their choice of favorite delicacy. Portions of...

Unbelievable how people line up at Mike's : the pastries are OK, but not out of this world. There are other pastry shops with tastier goods on the same street. The crowded chaos you have to put up with to get served is just not worth it unless you enjoy bedlam.

Everything is delicious at Mike's.......Try it all. I could have stopped with the Oreo Cannoli. Delicious doesn't do it justice. Remember to bring cash though, no CC's.

The line was crazy long for good reason. I suggest toughing it out and be patient because you can't get this stuff just anywhere!

Had previously stayed in Boston a few years ago and I sadly missed the chance to visit Mikes. It was top of my bucket list on my return and boy it didn't disappoint!! The cookies and cannoli were A+ .... Most definitely worth the wait and long queues!!

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.
