Whether it’s a special occasion or just a regular old Monday afternoon, sometimes a person wants a single perfect slice of cake. Birthday cake, crepe cake, flan, Boston cream pie — for whatever the appetite, there’s probably a Boston-area restaurant or bakery that can provide. Here are some of the best by-the-slice (or single-serving) cake options in town. For most of these, no pre-planning or pre-ordering is necessary; just waltz right in, grab a slice, and enjoy.
Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. Note that as of January 15, 2022, restaurants in the city of Boston are required to check for proof of vaccination for customers dining indoors; Brookline has a similar mandate, but Brookline’s also covers outdoor dining.
