Authentic Italian Bakery

Being a Bostonian, and having a grandfather that owned a pastry shop in the North End when I was a child, I can honestly say that I have never, ever been disappointed with Modern Pastry! The cannoli's are wonderful, as well as all the other Italian pastries. Everything is fresh, and has not been sitting in the fridge for hours. They also managed to incorporate some American Pastries/candies that are equally delight... view more

Worst customer service in the City. Not worth the wait or the aggrevation. Do yourself a favor and walk across the street to Mike's.

Best Cannoli I have had

After reviewing Mike's Pastry last week, it is time to judge Modern's Pastry and decide which one has the best cannoli. Mike's and Modern are right across the street from each other. Just like the rivalry between Philly Cheesesteak establishments, Gino's and Pat's, it is dead intense. In my opinion, both pastry stores have their distinct strengths that attract loyal followers. I came on a Saturday afternoon and th... view more

Frozen Foods

I have gone here last year and was disapointed. It is a small dirty place. With over priced food. The day that I went I asked certain dessert and was given it by the owners wife. When I sat down and tried it I noticed it had been frozen. I can tell this because it lacked flavor. So I asked the woman in charge if she had any thing that was fresh. She gave me a very rude answer. She said that I wouldnt know the differ... view more

Mmmmm Canoli's

Im not going to lie I have a terrible sweet tooth, so pretty much anything with frosting usually gets the job done for me. But modern pastery is actually worth the trip. For 20 bucks I got 6 canolis and 4 cup cakes that were the size of my fist. It was great, and like I said I have the type of sweet tooth that can usually be satisfied by a crueller at Dunks, but Modern Pastry is worth the trip into the North End

After many glowing reviews, we stopped off here tonight for coffee and dessert. Sadly, despite their self-imposed view that they are coffee kings, Americans make terrible coffee, and Modern are no exception. Burnt coffee, burnt milk, overall an undrinkable latte. I'd expect more from the North End. The creme brulee was sad, lumpy custard with a gelatine top. We also ordered a bizzare brown and white tart (which we th... view more

Best Bakery in the North End!

Modern Pastry has finished its renovations and has the long line to prove it! Unlike Mike's Pastry; Modern Pastry has an organized line and the staff wait on who's first in the line. Plus, the line does move quickly. The cannolis at Modern are the best in the North End. They even offer a smaller size cannolis for guiltless pleasure! Their cookies and fruit pies are yummy too!

Skip the rude service at Cafe Dello Sport

Modern Pastry has gone, well, modern with their new look. The renovation has attracted lines, unfortunately. Still, I'd go here rather than Mike's (can we say tourist trap) or to Cafe Dello Sport. Unless you want completely rude service at Cafe Dello Sport, the line at Modern is well worth the wait.

Superior pastries and shorter lines

Superior to Mike's in overall quality of the pastries, in my opinion, Modern sports top shelf tiramisu, canolis and ricotta pie (these are the three I can speak for). Lines are also generally shorter, so Modern as far as I'm concerned is the place to go. FYI, there's no space to sit down. I recommend Cafe Dello Sport if you're looking to do that.
