It's impossible for me to take a trip to the North End in Boston without stopping at Mike's Pastry. This Italian bakery is LEGENDARY on Hanover Street and once you order anything on their menu, you'll know why. 

From cupcakes to cookies, they have every kind of baked good and sweet you can image. They even have several flavors of gelato.There are so many different kinds of cannolis. It's tough to pick one, so bring a bunch home. My favorite is their choclate chip cannoli. The shell is the perfect texture and the filling is off of the charts! Perfection. I also can't seem to leave Mike's Pastry without a bag of their champage cookies - you know, the Italian cookies with sprinkles around the edges. And did I mention their strawberry cheesecake? Out of this world.

Mike's is always packed with locals and tourists, but don't let the line intimidate you. Us locals know how to quickly make your way to the front and even if you don't, you'll be in and out in no time. No trip to the North End is complete without a visit to Mike's. , , , ,
