Harvard University students are about to get very lucky, well, even luckier than usual. Mike's Pastry, the famed Italian pastry shop located in Boston's North End neighborhood, is planning on opening another shop, and they're hoping to expand right into Harvard's back yard.
Mike's Pastry has already expanded beyond its original storefront since it started accepting delivery orders online. Now, according to CBS Boston, Mike’s Pastry is planning to open a new brick-and-mortar shop at 11 Dunster St. in Harvard Square. That news is sure to be met with glee from a lot of the shop's new neighbors, because college is always better with ready access to copious amounts of freshly baked Italian pastries, like the cannoli and biscotti that are signature menu items at the bakery.
The Harvard Square Advisory Committee is currently reviewing a special permit application for the upcoming Mike's Pastry outpost, which would require a Fast Order Food Establishment Special Permit, the Cambridge Community Development Department said.
