    I have gotten their gluten free whoopie pies and cookies on several occasions. Always delicious, never gotten me sick. The line is shorter and moves faster than Mike's, but it is cash only.

    I have celiac and had no reaction the 3 times I’ve been. So amazing to have a cannoli again. Baked goods were a main concern when I was diagnosed. Be sure to tell them you have celiac when they pipe the cannolis. Also there’s a risk of contamination so ask for fresh toppings!

    Tried the gf cannolli after reading other reviews of it being celiac safe. The taste was ok at best and I was very ill after eating it.

    Awesome gluten free cannoli. The waitress was knowledgeable about which fillings and toppings were safe from cross contamination. Nice to have a place for gluten and non gluten to enjoy a pastry together.

    Fabulous. GF muffins and cannolis. Had steak and egg breakfast and it was delicious. Really friendly staff. Highly recommend.

    Not many places you can find gluten free cannoli. The ricotta...omg! It was delicious. A little speedy $5.95 for one small one but I'd pay again for it😋. Note- cash only

    So awesome to have a dedicated sealed case for the gluten free baked goods. My daughter loved the cookies. Make it a stop on your Boston "to do" list!!

    where else can you get a celiac friendly gluten free csnnoli? it's not a dedicated bakery, so I don't expect a lot of options. Great Black and White cookies too!

    Fucking gluten free cannoli! Kept in a separate container from gluten. Pricey sure, but so delicious.

    The cannolie was excellent but very small. I was happy to even have a gluten free option so I was thrilled. As the comments stated above, not many choices. Also, thank goodness I double-checked ( as I always do), that it was gluten free... she must not have heard me and I almost bought a regular one. She immediately corrected the mistake. 3 stars because there were only 2 choices.

    Gluten free cannoli! Duh you have to come here. Only the ricotta and chocolate chips are gluten free friendly options for toppings. The pistachios and almonds are not GF. They have the gluten free items on the counter near the main registers separate from everything else. Delicious!

    Gluten free cannoli delicious. Made to order. Not a lot of gf options.

    Limited GF options--thus a 2 star overall rating. Had their ricotta cannoli. It was ok, I'd say 3 stars. But I am not much of a cannoli person. However, Modern Pastry's cannoli is better than the cannolis I've had at other places (Mike's pastry, included). Would I have it again? Yes.

    When gf options are available there are delicious! Love being able to indulge in a cannoli, whoopie pie, or muffin. The almond muffin is my favorite.

    It was great to be able to have a gf cannoli. They come pre filled with one of the fillings. Not amazing but I was very pleased to have one! I'm gluten intolerant and did not get sick.

    GF cannoli was great! The shell isn't like a traditional shell. But is anything ever equal to the version with gluten?

    The locals told us to go here and after waiting in a long line, we were first told they had gluten free cannoli only to then be told they were sold out. Nothing there but some muffins that did not look appetizing. They couple next to us left empty handed as well. If they are advertised on this app they should really have more of a supply, the demand is certainly there.

    Whoopie pies are tiny compared to their gluten counterpart, and sure they are moist, like eating wet sand. Rather disappointing after standing in a crazy long line. Shame their creme brûlée isn't gluten free...

    Whoopie pies are amazing. Almond muffins are nearly as good.

    Check it out if you're craving something sweet n tasty, but go early, they run out. The whoopie pies are almost always super-moist and delicious. Not down with the types of muffins, so I haven't tried them. (They should do blueberry, hello!) During the Holidays they did a couple different types of cookies, which were all delicious...they should do those year round. Never had any issues eating their products.

    Tried it for 1st time & will def return. I didn't like whoopie pies before I was celiac but I don't have sweets much now so I figured I'd try it...sooo glad I did (& also glad I didn't go by the bad reviewer) cake was moist & chocolatey... Cream was sweet but not obnoxiously so..... What more do we want? I also got lemon poppyseed muffin & almond muffin! Nice to be able to eat junk like everyone else when I'm in the N. End :-) Forgot to mention... Each GF item is immediately wrapped in its own plastic wrapper & kept separate from other baked goods.

    I had the whoopie pie, the only option available (which was rather disappointing, walking in and having to see aaallll of those lovely things I couldn't eat). Given the rave reviews of their whoopie pies from other people, I'm assuming (hoping) that this one day was just a fluke. I think the coffee in their recipe was really burnt and gave it an overall nasty flavor. Better luck next time?

    The whoopie pies are so good!! They have always had gf items when I've gone and I've been there maybe 4 times in the past couple of years. You can call ahead to see what gf items they have. These are located in a basket near the registers. I don't recall liking the other couple of items I tried, but the whoopie pies are so soft and moist and heavy and DELICIOUS that I can't help but devour the whole thing! (and then I have guilt). So worth it!

    was not impressed at all. both the whoopi pies and muffins were terrible! places like this give gluten free a bad name. there is definitely better gf desserts out there.
