Mama Mia! Italian Pastries at Modern Pastry Shop in Boston. We put a dent into the cases and cases of baked goods. We tried PLimoncello Cake, Chocolate Mousse Cake, Italian Cookies, Almond Macaroons, Amaretto puff, canoli with custard and chocolate covered strawberries. all were or are still amazing as we are grazing thru them.

This is one of the 3 bakeries that people debate have the best Cannolis. Frankly, all three are amazing, tourists will line up at Mike's, and the lines are insane. Modern will also back up but not as bad. If you want to avoid the lines, go early. The cannolis are so good and I recommend the traditional but they have countless combinations because they are made to order. Mike's has a set number of choices.

There are two often visited pastry stores on Hanover Street in Boston’s North End. One is often crowded with long lines, living off their reputation. The other is Modern Pastry, also a staple operated for almost a century,
Modern is less crowded, makes, in my opinion a better product and just feels more “old Italian”.
It is a place not to be overlooked and a great gem.

I was in Boston recently and tried this pastry shop. The sweets are not as good as mikes. The Boston Creme cup cakes were a bit dry and the cannolis were just ok. The positives were that the service was great.

I love going here and have the whole experience of sitting down with my family after dinner and enjoy a coffee and a pastry from this place! One of my favorite dessert places in Boston area.
