In honor of Eater's first-ever Sweets Week, Eater Boston asked pastry chefs from local restaurants to rave about their favorite local desserts (not their own). Read on to see their quick-service top picks — croissants, cookies, cakes, and so much more — from some of the best bakeries and cafes in town. (Find their favorites at full-service restaurants here.)
The pastry chefs' favorites span up to Amesbury (apple cider doughnuts at Cider Hill Farm) and down to Braintree (Boston cream pie and more at Konditor Meister). Three North End pastry shops make appearances on the map, with cannoli and lobster tails galore, and there are two French patisseries, chock full of kouign amann and croissants. How many of these spots have you tried?
Are you a pastry chef at a Boston-area restaurant who would like to add your favorites to the map? It'll be updated periodically, so hit up the Eater Boston tipline with your name, where you work, and your favorite treat(s).
