Modern Pastry

rep123max | Mar 11, 2009 02:24 PM

I have a couple questions about Modern versus Mike's (I've done some board sleuthing and haven't found any answers). Is Modern the place to go even if I don't like cannolis? I'm more of a fan of cake, brownies, and cookies (usually with some amount of chocolate). Does Modern have more stuff than their pastry case displays? I've gone in a couple times to get a glimpse of what they have, and it doesn't seem like much. So any recommendations? Every time I go to the North End, I tell myself to get something from Modern, but I instinctively go to Mike's (especially for the huge M&M cookies). But this week I'm determined to go to Modern. Is the strawberry cheesecake too rich or is it really good?
