The Good Eats Boston feature of the week is the pretty fabulous Sweet Bakery shop in Boston. I recently found out about this place and I’m in love. Sweet Bakery is a great place to go when you owe yourself a sweet treat or for those days when you need a pick me up.
Sweet Bakery is a cute store that is located right in Boston’s downtown crossing area which makes it easily accessible. As you may have noticed, I love stores that have great product but also have pretty and unique ambiance. Sweet Bakery doesn’t disappoint with both. The store is very pretty, decorated with bright and wall-papered walls, little flower vases on the tables and super cool pink princess-like upholstered chairs. You will love the seats right by the window which are perfect for people watching.
There are plenty of cupcake flavors to choose from. I chose a chocolate and coconut flavor cupcake which were both perfect. The cakes are soft and fluffy while the frosting is packed with flavor and not overly sweet. The ratio between cake and frosting is done right. They also serve cookies and other pastries which is great. For all the vegans out there you will be happy to know Sweet has vegan options too.
I really can’t find anything negative to say about this place except it would be nice if they served the cupcakes on a dessert plate rather than a paper plate for eat in guests. However that’s just me and my pickiness, I just detest paper plates and cups as I feel they should only be used for people ordering items to go.
The saying, You can’t buy happiness but you can buy cupcakes is one I totally agree with. There is something about eating a cupcake that brings joy and a feeling that all is right with the world, even for just a few minutes. If you live in the Boston area, I highly recommend Sweet Bakery. They also have locations in Chestnut Hill and Harvard Square. For more info, visit Sweetcupcakes.com
