In business since 1943, 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 we find 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.
