And I believe them! We were walking the Freedom Trail on a HOT day, and this gelato kept us going. The mint chocolate chip and espresso flavors were delicious!

Both the chocolate and vanilla gelato were neither creamy nor sweet. Virtually flavorless in a part of town known for wonderful sweets

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
