Last week my husband & I decided to have a little romantic afternoon in Little Italy. I know that once we have kids, these spontaneous adventures will be few and far between, so it means a lot to me to take advantage of that freedom now. As fast as you can say "cannoli," my husband is on board!
We walked around the neighborhood, hand in hand, passing each shop with curious eyes. I thought to myself then how lucky I am that we still have so much fun together, four years later. With very little money, and just a sprinkle of time together, he makes my heart light.
But enough of this sappy crap! Get back to the cannoli! When we walked in the door, it was so busy I thought it would take us twenty minutes to order, but the ladies behind the counter were so fast that we ordered within five minutes. There were so many delicious treats and TONS of cannoli to choose from at Mike's Pastry. Inside there was a few tables, but we took ours to go since it was early in the afternoon.
We got chocolate dipped & mint flavored cannoli. They were HUGE! I could barely eat a quarter of one because not only are they incredibly rich but also intensely sweet. My husband, on the other hand, ate them both within two days. I preferred the chocolate dipped one, personally. I love mint + chocolate but this particular one had just too much mint and not enough chocolate. Here are a few more pictures. Try not to drool. ;)
Any other Bostonians have bakery suggestions? I don't have a sweet tooth like I used to, but its always handy to know a food bakery for gifts! Let me know. :)
