Modern Pastry

Sweet Italian treats without the wait

Strolling down Hanover Street, it’s impossible to pass Modern Pastry without dropping in for a sweet treat. The Italian bakery is famous for its lobster tail — and we’re not talking about shellfish. A crispy, flaky pastry is split open and overstuffed with sweet cream. It’s so delicious you’ll want the whole huge thing for yourself. There are plenty of other options to choose from, including irresistible cannoli and steaming cappuccino.

Modern Pastry is a bit off the radar screen to all but locals, so the lines are shorter and sweeter (than Mike’s). It’s a perfect finish to a walking tour of Boston’s North End.
