Full Disclosure: I bought this dessert with my own money and the opinions are completely my own.
After a very filling dinner at Scollay Square, we were all pretty full. We also were in the mood to explore more of Boston, so we decided to head to the North End in search of dessert. The North End of Boston is a very bustling place! Restaurants filled to the brim, street musicians, lots of energy. Emily suggested we go to Mike’s Pastry, so that is where we headed. I should have known that the place would be popular, but I didn’t realize the line would be well out the door!
Luckily, we had nowhere else to be so we were totally fine with waiting – this way maybe our food would digest a bit more too! The line actually went pretty quickly. Once inside I was a bit overwhelmed with all of the options! There was of course cannoli, but many other desserts as well! Probably luckily for me, they only take cash. Since I was running a bit low on cash, I decided to chose only one thing to order. I’m not sure how I did it, but I managed to decided on the Limoncello Cannoli. I’m not actually a huge fan of cream filling, but I figured I had to just go for it since it is what they are known for.
Well, my first Cannoli ever (I think?) was a success! I am a huge fan of lemon and other citrus flavored desserts, so I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that I liked it so much! The lemon cream was still pretty rich, but it also had a light lemon flavor that was rather refreshing! If I hadn’t been so full from dinner, I probably would have eaten much more, but the cannoli was HUGE! Definitely a portion for two or more – unless you hadn’t had a full dinner beforehand I suppose.
Taste: A+, honestly even better than I expected!
Cost: A+, I believe it was $3.75 for my cannoli – a great price for the amount and quality of the food, I’d say!
Would I go there again? Yes. If I ever get to Boston again, I would love to go there with more of an appetite!
