Mike's Pastry-A True North End Delight
Since 1946, Mike's Pastry has been crafting their signature cannoli in the historic North End of Boston. They've also branched out, with locations in Cambridge and Somerville. One easy way to find Mike's: Just look for the shop with the long line overflowing onto the sidewalk. Do not let the crowd of cannoli cravers deter you from your quest. Once you're inside, the line splits up and the multiple lines move quite quickly. You now face one tough decision: What to order, because EVERYTHING looks so tempting! The prize is now within your grasp. Make it easy on yourself-Order a mouth-watering variety of cookies, cannoli, and pastries. You'll leave with a little white box with blue writing on the outside and a decadent assortment of baked goods on the inside. Success!! My prize this time? One luscious chocolate cream cannolo and one sinfully good espresso cannolo. So good. So worth a trip to one of Mike's Pastry locations when you're in Massachusetts.
