I queued for a good 20 minutes to get my hands on this.
Some might say that’s a short wait for a cannoli from Mike’s Pastry — an Italian pastry institution in Boston’s North End — where lines frequently wrap around the block. I would happily have queued a little longer.
Cannoli traditionally come from Sicily, but for Bostonians, this little pastry shop on Hanover Street is the place to go. House made shells are fried to perfection: thick, crispy and golden brown; the ricotta filling is sweetened just enough that you don’t feel too sugared-up in the aftermath, just naughty; and the chocolate chip bookends are a must have.
A cannoli from here will cost you $3.00-$3.50
