Like its siblings in the South End, Central Square and Back Bay, this sweet stuff hotspot boasts pastel hues, a chalkboard menu and a space as cute as a cupcake—or any of the other goodies gracing the counter, for that matter, from honest sticky buns to sugar-sprinkled vanilla cream donuts to fat chocolate-chip macaroons that could convert even sworn coconut-loathers. The sandwiches are no mere afterthought—curried tuna salad and BLTs are the hot sellers.

So good that as soon as we sat down on a bench just outside of the harbor, in back of the Intercontinental Hotel, a large (and I do mean large) seagull picked off the white bag filled with our fresh cream filled donut, right between my wife and I, and began to open up the bag and voraciously eat it! It obviously knew this brand of white bag and targeted our donut. As crazy as this sounds, locals probably know what I'm talking about as it knew exactly how to successfully carry this operation out! Okay, with all that being said, I had their delicious sticky, sticky bun and it was worth the trauma we just went through, plus a cup of their French dark roast coffee. We will be heading back to get the replacement for the donut we weren't able to eat ourselves. Forewarning, just eat your goodies from this place inside!
