BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2014) - Hotels, restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and even food carts have them on display, but who has Boston's best cannolis? Marriott throws their hat in the ring with two suggestions, along with helpful tips for satisfying your sweet tooth in the city, with this useful infographic.
With 50 years of experience, it's no wonder Mike and Annette Mercogliano of Mike's Pastries have won praise from patrons far and wide, including President Bill Clinton. When you stop in for a treat, and you absolutely should, you'll certainly appreciate that everything is made fresh on site using traditional Italian recipes.
Numerous well-respected sources including The New York Times, National Geographic and the Boston Globe recommend Modern Pastry for its perfect cannoli. Three generations of master chefs have perfected the Old World Italian recipes Modern Pastry uses to craft its tasty treats.
According to Boston Magazine, another contender in the race for the best cannoli is Caffe Paradiso. This city landmark for Italian desserts boasts three generations of expert bakers. Patrons are invited to stop in and enjoy coffee, pastries and gelato "with gusto," as well as to pay their respects to the family matron, Antonietta DeStefano. Whatever you do, though, don't take her chair.
You'll find the same standard of excellence at our Marriott Boston hotels as you do in a classic Italian cannoli from these acclaimed pastry purveyors. Expect a warm welcome, excellent service, luxury amenities and first-class rooms at our 81 Boston hotels.
