Best of Boston

1995 Best Neighborhood Improvement

Bread & Circus

White peaches, Allegro coffee, Nicoise olives, English Stilton, and Iggy’s breads now reign where once a scuzzy Stop & Shop stood. And for city dwellers, the one hour of free parking with a $5 purchase makes this the best shopping destination around.
