Lulu's Bakery in the North End

  • e

Just opened today. Had a yummy chocolate cupcake and carrot cake. Cute little spot and perfect for the neighborhood full of italian pastries. Have interested savory bread puddings for breakfast. I will try one tomorrow.

  1. The chocolate trifle's great -- very moist and rich chocolate cake (leading me to extrapolate that the cakes are going to be exemplary), ajust the right amount of buttery caramel swirled in, and good whipped cream.

    The pecan roll is nice, bready, and good hint of yeast.

    1. Do you have an address?

        I don't but it is right on Hanover St. right next to what used to be Via Valverde.

          Via Valverde's next incarnation is called Tresca, according to the sign on the door.

        I had a nice lemon-lime cookie there this afternoon. I'd like to try the carrot cake cupcake--the woman working there said that's all she's had and it's amazing.

        They do have a web site but there's not much info up yet.

        1. Google the Boston Globe article about cupcakes on 08/30/06. It talks about Lulu's and others.

            Didn't this article also have a recipe for red velvet cupcakes? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Any advice you could provide would be appreciated!

          2. They also make a fantastic biscotti.

              Those biscotti are great. I prefer their chewy style to the traditional hard biscotti.
