Awesome time in the North End with my neighbors from Ink Block. We enjoyed mixology masterpieces and cannolis from Mike's Pastry and Modern Pastry while getting a great walking tour of the North End! What a great way to spend a Tuesday night. Thank you...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
