Boston's North End - Bakeries And Pastry Shops

North Square - Boston North End

The North End of Boston has many famous and bakeries and pastry shops. On Hanover St. alone, there are three exceptional shops. Mike's Pastry, Modern Pastry and Lydell's Bakery. But don't be fooled, Hanover st. is not the only street to go to in the North End for sweets.

Modern Pastry - Modern Pastry Shop is an award winning, family owned Italian Bakery. Modern Pastry was created, over 70 years ago, on Hanover Street in Boston's North End. The world may have changed since the 1930's, but our original recipes and time honored traditions for creating our confections have not, since our family brought them over from Italy so many years ago. Three generations of innovative master chefs and over 150 years of authentic old world methods and experience, make our product stand out among the best. Our products will always be hand crafted, using the finest ingredients. That is our standard of excellence. Visit Salumeria Online or Get Directions

Wheather you are looking for fresh cannolis, with rich riccotta filling, in a soft, but slightly crunchy shell, or other treats like biscotti, marzapan, pies, breads or pizzelles, the North End has it all. Each shop has its own personal touch, letting you get a taste of Italy no matter where you end up going. Most bakeries or pastry shops have a small area where you can sit down and enjoy a snack, drink some espresso or a latte and enjoy the aromas from freshly baked cookies, breads and more.

We will pack up your goodies with care and send them right out, so that you'll be smiling soon. Visit Salumeria Online or Get Directions

Fresh breads are baked daily like the traditional Italian loaf, or focaccia - right from the fire, in all shapes, sizes and textures run throughout the streets with the fresh aroma, which can't be mistaken for another. The North End of Boston has many places to pick up a fresh loaf for anyone's taste.

Tips for North End Bakeries and Pastry Shops: There most likely will be a line. No matter what shop you go to, plan a head, and expect to wait a little. It is ok, it will be worth it. Places like Mike's Pastry and Modern Pastry - The lines are usually out the door. Some places only take cash - Use an ATM located near by to make sure you can purchase what you want. Don't be afraid to take some home - If you are driving in, bring a cooler and some ice so you can keep things cool. If you took the MBTA, bus or taxi, take a backpack to keep things as shaded as possible and be on your way.
