Best North End coffee/pastry? Not Pompeii's!

Science Chick | Nov 13, 2007 11:54 AM

We decided to hang out for a short while in the North End on Sat. afternoon and get a quick coffee. Mike's was absolutely packed, and I really wanted table we decided to sit down at Cafe Pompeii. Haven't been in a VERY LONG time, certainly not since the renovation. The cappuccinos were watered down I couldn't even taste the coffee flavor (just WAY too much milk). A cheesecake was marginally ok (albeit a bit gummy on the ends), and a chocolate cannoli was far too sweet, couldn't taste the nice tanginess of the cheese at all.

I guess I should have known better....but my question to hounds is: Where is the best place to sit down in the North end and have a nice coffee and pastry???
