BOSTON (CBS) – Mike’s Pastry, a 67-year-old Italian bakery in Boston’s North End, has received unanimous approval from the Cambridge Board of Zoning Appeal to open in Harvard Square. Mike’s Pastry had already signed a lease for 11 Dunster Street.
Michael Mercogliano’s stepson, Joseph Papa, tells me that the family agreed it was time to honor his name by expanding to a second location.
Papa says the secret to running a successful family business for almost seven decades is not to take anything that’s said in the store to heart.
