    Cannoli was super sugary but a good treat. Lobster tail was average.

    Best cannolis in Boston. If you want them to stay crisp longer, ask for them to dip the ends in chocolate. Best eaten fresh, but if you need a "fix" later....
  • Chris K.
    Good but very very crowded and touristy

    Giant ass cannoli's have spoiled me for other restaurants cannoli's.

    Chocolate shell cannoli

    Pretty overrated. Lobster tail is OK but not worth the hype. Remember there can be multiple lines running in parallel so don't get stuck in one long line that moves slowly.
  • Maxwell Z.
    'Lobster tails' for sure

    Super busy place, but it's worth it. Oreo cannoli is a surprising delicious variety.

    There'll be line, it's worth the wait. Get the lemon cannoli!

    Any time I'm in Boston I always stop by, their cookies and cream cannolis are fantastic. Hard to not by a whole box full!

    Great black and white cookie! I'm not used to rich sweets so the chocolate mocha was a bit much for me. Still a great spot.

    Fantastic cannoli. Gotta go here when you visit Boston. Long lines but don't get discouraged, they move quick. Favourite cannoli- lemoncello.

    One complaint about Mike's is their continued cash only policy. It's 2016, come on! It's not costumer friendly. All it does is prevent me from getting EVERYTHING I want as I never have much cash on me

    The long lines are for the cannoli, but I just can't say no to their eclairs and macaroons.
  • Josue E.

    1lb of macaroons in a box to my belly 👍

    Famous Italian bakery in Boston's historic North End. Best pastries anywhere. Lobster tails(also I think called bear claw or lobster claw) is a ginormous creme filled flaky pastry... is their best!

    If you're not getting a cannoli here, you're not really living. The ricotta base is classic.

    Pro tip: Know what you want before you get to the counter. Those who hesitate get skipped. Don't wait patiently for your turn. Order a Boston Cream, your favorite cannoli, and a lobster tail. Enjoy.

    Today it's a tourist trap better off just picking up at their second shop in Cambridge. Or better yet get a cannoli at the restaurant next-door is probably equally as good

    Good Italian pastries with a twist. Huge lines out the door, slightly disorganised feeling once inside - a proper line system would work better.

    There's a feud going on. Is Mike's or Modern better? I prefer to remain neutral. Mike's has awesome iced fig cookies.
  • Kaely G.

    Cannolis (chocolate chip!) and cappuccinos! The cannolis are huge and definitely shareable, they will cut them if you ask. Old school and busy atmosphere.

    First of all don't freak out by the huge crowd! There's no "line" so fight your way to the counter. Remember they only take cash!!! Order Lobster Tail: italian pastry with a mix of delicious creams.

    The Mike's Pastry box tied with red & white string (I'd fill with pignoli macaroons) is a timeless symbol of Old Boston cheer.

    Best chocolate-dipped cannoli in Boston area.

    Sadly Boston does not have a great bakery. Mikes is good for tourists and the selection is very large so there is something for everyone. But it's just OK. Go to Modern if you want good cannoli
  • Niny A.
    Niny Ali-SmithNovember 19, 2015
    Cannoli!!!!!!!!! Oh, they also have other yummy pastries too. Expect to see lines as you enter, sometimes the lines even go out to the street during weekends and holidays.

    Pretty good pastry, but Modern Pastry down the street runs a much better operation!

    Get the cannoli, and skip the line - just walk straight up to a counter.

    I've heard their cakes and other pastries are better than their cannoli
  • Ingrid W.
    Ingrid WongOctober 20, 2015
    An overrated tourist trap. Mike's has an impressive array of cannoli flavours, but the cannoli are not as fresh as Modern Pastry's or Maria's. At the other two places, the cannoli are freshly filled.

    Multiple people (including the woman behind the bar) told me a I made a good choice when walking out the door with my pistachio cannoli.

    It is as good as everyone claims it is, if not better. Along with the mousse canolli, have the decadent tiramisu.

    If you can survive the line, the reward is pastries totally worth a four-hour train ride from New York.
  • Christina

    I think their cannoli is overrated 😬; the cream is missing something (cinnamon?) and lacks the right texture. There are better options in the North End. Mike's also doesn't have sfogliatelle

    The Cannoli's are the best! Was not impressed with their cookies but the cannoli's are just WOW! Would definitely make this a stop..try the Oreo Cookie Cannoli!

    Make sure you have cash as they don't take cards, and be prepared to spend a lot because everything is to die for! Be sure to get some macaroons if you like coconut!

    Las personas en el mostrador son extremadamente groseras! Los Canelones y Pasteles nada del otro mundo. No vale la pena aguantar el pésimo trato.
  • Ana Clara F.
    Pra quem é fã de Cannolis (eu não)... Vale a pena! Deliciosos, mas muito parecido com o de outras doceiras. Os outros doces são gostosinhos, mas esperei muito mais pela propaganda que fizeram!

    Dicen que es uno de los mejores locales de canoli de boston. Lo encontré demasiado calórico. Es como para comerse 1 entre 2.

    Вкусные канолли! Советую брать с рикоттой - классический вкус, с клубникой, лимончелло, шоколадом на мой вкус оказались слишком "химическими".
