England travel article with your friends...
Mike's Pasty Shop, in the Italian North End neighborhood in
Boston, Mass., takes on a major tourist attraction-like status with
frequent lines out the door in anticipation of eating some amazing,
made-from-scratch baked goods.
In business since 1943 and open 24 hours a day, Mike's Pastry seems like the ultimate
Italian-American bakery with biscotti, brownies, cannolis, cakes,
cookies, fruit squares, gelati, marzipan, pies, torrone and more. I
like best the cannolis with chocolate cream filling and real
pistachios, but any other selection we've had has more than sufficed!
Like the lemon squares, chocolate layer cake, the "lobstertail" crusty
baked pastry with yellow custard filling...I could go on and on!
What makes Mike's Pastry better than most other places of this
genre in the Boston area is not only do they make everything fresh on
the premises, but they know what to do with the ingredients. It
does no good if one makes everything fresh and it taste lousy. At
Mike's Pastry, we've never had a baked good that we didn't like!
Additionally, you get your money's worth here, too -- no anemic-sized
baked goods here.
Mike's Pastry also has a 50-seat cafe, where you match your dessert(s)
with some espresso, a caffe latte, capuccino or tea.
The North End is known as "Little Italy," and Mike's comes up "big"
here as one of the most beloved places to be in this fun part of Boston.
