2012 BEST Bakery for Sweets

Modern Pastry

In business for more than 70 years, this North End landmark continues to offer a delicious dose of Old World baking charm. With its velvety truffles, homey thumbprint cookies, and decadent rum-soaked sponge cakes layered with chocolate mousse and thick ganache frosting, it’s no wonder the lines are forever spilling out of the shop and onto Hanover Street.
