Best bets for baked goods
Get buzzed with coffee, pancakes
At Middleton’s Hubbard Avenue Diner & Bakery, expect the full nostalgic diner experience with bottomless mugs of Colectivo coffee, darn-good blueberry buttermilk pancakes, and a long, long list of made-from-scratch pies.
Bagels are hand-rolled, boiled and baked fresh at Gotham New York Bagels & Eats, located downtown on Mifflin Street. Whether you’re in the mood for a classic combo like ham and cheddar cheese or the vegetarian fusion of scallion tofu, roasted poblano peppers, tomato, arugula and avocado, each flavor is sure to pop on one of these East Coast-inspired bagels.
Dough Baby Bakery is the new kid on the block and is making friends by baking up some seriously scrumptious fried dough. Kristine Miller, former pastry chef of L’Etoile and Graze, opened her State Street shop this past summer offering doughnuts in where-have-you-been-all-my-life flavors and pastry made with local and organic ingredients.
