2018 Winner: Modern Pastry

Few intra-Boston rivalries are as intense as the cannoli debate that rages between loyalists of North End institutions Mike’s Pastry and Modern Pastry. We’ll stay Switzerland in that war. But when it comes to cookies, consider us unequivocally allied with the Modern, whose glistening glass cases are always stocked with crispy anise treats and other delights that never fail to bring back warm memories of fresh-baked gifts from nonna.
