Cambridge Eats: Mike’s Pastry


Mike’s Pastry has always been a Boston staple in the North End, for visitors and locals alike!  With lines going out the door year round, it was only a matter of time before the famous Italian pastry shop expanded to the other side of the river.

Its newly opened storefront is in the heart of Harvard Square, and with dozens of different cookies, cakes, and of course cannolis, stopping by with a couple of friends is the perfect post-class treat ( order different flavors and have a dessert taste test)!

Just remember it’s cash only.
