Quebrada Bakery

Excellent mini cupcakes. Is this a well know Boston bakery? Are the other items just as great?

  1. it's ok, in my experience. nothing to shout home about.

    1. I think so! The muffins (mmm pumpkin) and croissants (choc, raspberry, plain) are both quite good...it's usually a pretty busy place in the morning and the coffee/tea is quite good as well. Altho the prices are a bit high, they have great day-old specials that just require a little heat.

      1. I've only ever had their mini cupcakes (a tasty treat to bring to a party), but I agree, they were good.

        1. Quebrada is well-known to people in the Arlington/Medford area. I think that they make excellent cakes - they are our 'go-to' place when ordering cakes for birthdays!

            Try the croissants .. I prefer the petits with rasberry filling.

          2. I love their blueberry scones and the fact that they do a mini version of almost anything! Great scones if you like them biscuity and not too sweet. Savory filled croissants are good but quite rich. Eating one keeps me full for the rest of the day!

            1. They have excellent croissant, wonderful scones and their cakes are very fresh and delicious. Whenever I bring onr of their cakes people say it is thebest they ever had. They also make a good Boston Creme Pie and their bread is good.

              1. I love the pecan rolls too, along with the croissants (the warm cheese ones are my favorite), and well, just about everything else.

                1. I like most of the items I have tried-whole wheat challah, snickerdoodle cookies, sour cream coffee cake, frosted birthday cakes.

                  1. I crave their chocolate croissants. If you go in the morning, the chocolate is still warm and melts in your mouth. Also their cinnamon roll. Buttery goodness!

                      When I lived in Arlington, I got fat on the heavenly ham and cheese croissants. They are nothing short of luscious - also best French style plain croissants I have come across in the region.

                        Is that still next to the little Whole Foods just off Rt 9?
