A cash only pastry shop, Mike’s pastry offers too many cannoli flavors to count. My favorite is the mint chocolate chip but it’s hard to go wrong.

Maybe it's a tourist thing, but I cannot pass up going here for cannolis! The ricotta filling is the best!

Quick service and hands down the best cannolis in the city. There's a reason there's always a line!

Although a bit touristy, its definitely a spot you don't want to miss. If you like cannoli's, and especially if you want to try some awesome and fun flavored cannoli's, make sure you make it to Mike's.

Whether your five feet or fifty from someone in Boston carrying that blue and white box any local or traveler who's been here before can tell where they've been. You'll see them all over the place Mike's Pastry is one of my must visit spots in the City. They serve Delicious Cannoli's and Italian Pastries. Don't worry if there's a line. That just means your in the right spot :) It's well worth the wait :) and should be on the top of your list next time your in the North End! As far as the Canolli's go you really can't go wrong but I think my favorite is the Chocolate Ricotta!

So I'm not sure how I haven't run across any knowledge of Mike's before the age of 20 but when I say Cannoli, it usually involves me ordering a second shortly after.

If you're in the North End, then you have to drop by Mike's Pastry & try their cannoli! Be patient with the long queues on the weekends.

Didn't love up to the hype. They had a line out the door for mediocre pastries and bad customer service.

I love Mike's Pastry!

When we first visited Boston a few years ago, we saw so many people carrying their boxes that we knew we had to try it. We asked someone where it was and they gave us this tip.

TIP: Don't wait in line! Push your way in the door, and get yourself to the counter. At busy times, there's about 20 people behind the counter that will take your order. Tourists will wait outside in a line, but those in the know, know to just get inside and get in any of the many mini lines that forms inside.

They have loads of items here like their famous canolis in a wide variety of flavors, Italian cookies, pastries, cakes, and pies. My absolute favorite is the Lobster Tail pastry! It's so flaky and crispy!

Get the Lobster Tail to share with a friend. It's big, but oh so delicious. It's made in the shape of an actual lobster tail!

A Boston institution. There are lots of great options but it's hard to go wrong with any of the cannoli's. I tend to opt for plain but they've got lots of varieties to suit your taste.

Get a cannoli
Don't feel rude pushing to the counter as there is no official line.

Although there are other branches of Mike's Pastry in Boston, the one in the North End is still the most popular. Their cannoli is amazing and rich in flavor and its texture is consistent. You get a variety of options and it shows you what Boston is all about.

This place is on point for cannoli's, and everyone knows it. So busy, when I dropped in here. However, the line moves quickly. Friend and I split a peanut butter cannoli and a cookies and cream cannoli. Both delicious!!

Classic north end spot. Huge fancy pastries. I was always to overwhelmed to step inside but had family members and friends brave the tourist crowd for me. You'll see folks on the t with Mike's boxes tied with string and think, dang I want a pastry right now.

Was told to come here for it's famous Cannoli - which I'm sure everyone is told to do because the line was out the door. It WAS great Cannoli, maybe not the best I've had, but the service was fast and they had soo many options!
