Cash only authentic Italian bakery/pastry shop. The leaf cookies are my kids' favorite. We love the multi colored champagne cookies. Always a pound of each and always to go. Lines can be long though, which can be a problem since there is NO parking in the North End.

Although this shop carries a lot of very good looking desserts, they've done a great job with the classic canoli with ricotta cheese. So simple and yet these guys figured out how to elevate a classic dessert without going too far. The texture and flavor of the ricotta was spot on.

In contrast, the shop down the road called "Mike's" had a line 10x the length at Modern, but Mike's version of a canoli was more of a fried outer shell with a ricotta flavor that didn't have that smooth consistency and rich flavor of Modern's.

Outstanding!! Cannoli ($4) was out of this world. Addictive. The Berry Tart ($6.75), Chantilly cream topped with lots, and I mean lots, of berries. Perfection. Best I've ever had.

If you are craving some dessert after a good Italian dinner, or you're just looking to treat yourself to a sweet snack, Modern Pastry in North End is the place to go! Their chocolates and truffles are some of the best I have ever had, and prices are great for the high quality confections you can get here. This is one of Boston's can't miss dessert spots, so definitely stop in if you're in the area or walking the Freedom Trail. Just remember to bring cash - it is cash only!
