Cannoli Heaven

If there is such a place as cannoli heaven, it would certainly be in Boston, nestled inside a magnificent Italian Bakery called Mike's Pastry. They have roughly a dozen different types of cannoli, each as delicious as the last. My ultimate favorite though is the Florentine Cannolo. For those of you who don't know, and most ignorant Italian restaurants, one pastry is called a cannolo which is singular, and multiple are called cannoli.

Glenn and I first set foot into Mike's a little over a year ago on our honeymoon. We only had mere hours to spend in the wonderful city of Boston, but one of our top priorities was to visit Mike's. Jetlagged and tired from our red-eye flight we set out to find the bakery and proceeded to get lost a few times, sorta, and then in a roundabout way, we finally arrived in heaven. This is certainly a must visit if you ever get the chance to visit Boston, I promise you won't be sorry.

Oh this brings back the best memories of living in Boston. Dinner at Cantina Italiana just down the road from Mikes, then a walk to Mikes to stand in line for a canolli and a rum casada for the T ride back to Cambridge.

Thanks for the great memories!

All the more reason to visit Boston again! Thanks for the tip, I'll add it to my list of "must visit when traveling" places.
