We were in Boston over Fourth Of July weekend and we had to try this place out. First of all, I must say, we beat the CROWND!!!! yeayyy. We went at the perfect time, I think around 1:00 PM and waited less than 5 minutes. They were so quick! Anyway, The cannoli-plain was huge, delicious crust and delicious filling!! Loved it. The Jim Roll (i think it's called), was good. The cupcakes, not so much. I make better cupcakes at home. The chocolate cupcake almost tasted boxed. Maybe it was because it was hot and it was in the nbox for an hour, I don't know!, but took one bite and threw it out. The vanilla cupcake with white frosting was ok. I can't wait to go back and try the BIG yellow sponge rum cake with filling. It looked so good!!

It is never a good idea to walk into a pastry shop when you are hungry. You know you will order and eat the worst possible things that would ruin your diet. However, on Feb. 13th I did just that out of despair that every single restaurant in Boston North End required an hour plus wait.
My boyfriend and I were both hungry and grumpy and we couldn't bear the thought of waiting for another hr or two for dinner. Then, we saw Mike's Pastry, selling allegedly the best Canoli in Boston. There was a long line out the door while it was 25 degrees out. We knew it must be true or these people must be crazy! We went in line and thought having some pastry would hold off our hunger until our table is ready.
So we were in line for about 10 minutes and finally got to order our share of pastry. They have a great selection of Canoli, ricotta pies, Italian cookies, pastries, and cakes. It was very hard to even decide what to get. Out of hunger, we decided to get 3 canolis, Zeppole Cream Pie, and Chocolate Dipped Florentine.
We tried the pistacchio canoli first and it was amazing. It is one of the biggest canoli I have had. The shell is crispy and the ricotta cream is fresh. At the same time, we swallowed down the chocholate dipped florentine cookie, which is crispy and tasty too. Before we realized we ate too much, I had half of chocolate covered canoli in my stomach already.
All I can say is this is truly one of the best canoli I have had in the United States, outshining Veniero's or Ferrara in New York. If you are in Boston, definitely visit this Canoli Mecca!

I never understood the appeal of Mike's. Much like Little Italy in other Northeast cities, notably NYC, North end is feeling more and more like Vegas. Good for tourists and not much else. Who wants to elbow to the counter with a whole bunch of tourists for overpriced american italian desserts? Packed, small, crowded and not much else.

I think this shop is overrated. I grew up in a very italian town and feel the cannolis don't compare.
Once you finish waiting in line, you cannot view the food you want because everyone is blocking...and you are rushed to make up your mind. No prices are shown, so you are left to worry if you've spent too much.
I'd recommend going 2 blocks down to another shop and avoid the crowds!
