A brand new location of an acclaimed North End pastry shop opens its doors in Somerville on Thursday, bringing cream-filled pastries and so much more to the Assembly Row Complex. Mike’s Pastry debuts on April 20 at 8 a.m., and one of the shop’s founding owners, Annette Mercogliano, will be on hand to serve the store’s first cannoli.
This is the third location for the 55-year-old Mike’s Pastry, which is best known for serving massive cannoli, lobster tails, cream puffs, and more on Hanover Street in the North End. A second location in Harvard Square opened in 2014, as previously reported. Somerville’s mayor, Joe Curtatone, will partake in a grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony for the pastry shop at 11:15 a.m. on Thursday. (Note: This is a change from the previously reported time of 3 p.m.)
Mike’s joins a number of other restaurants and retailers at the Assembly Row complex, which is easing into yet another phase of growth. Other dining options include Legal On The Mystic, Fuji at Assembly, Earl’s Kitchen + Bar, Totto Ramen, River Bar, and others, and a new brewhouse from Somerville Brewing Company is on the way as well.
The Mike’s expansion to Assembly Row has been in the works for the last year. The Somerville shop will operate daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. This location will accept debit and credit cards.
