2000 BEST Bakery, Classic

Montilio’s

Open for 50 years, Montilio’s has clearly got its recipes for success down pat. Besides offering towering birthday and wedding cakes (Bobby Kennedy and Arthuer Fiedler are two famous recipients of the former), Montilio’s has also adapted to the 21st century with its coffee, biscotti, and muffin selections. The cozy dining section makes this an ideal pit stop for tea and scones after a stroll down Newbury.
