Great cupcakes in Newton

I bought cupcakes for a birthday party at Bread and Chocolate in Newton. Wow, they were good.

I had gone to 4 other places yesterday looking for cupcakes including Vicki Lee in Belmont and Lilly's in Watertown and nobody had anything.

I stumbled on this place driving up Walnut Street, saw the sign reading Bread & Chocolate, my two favorite foods.

When I walked in I was greeted by a showcase of designer cupcakes that not only looked beautiful but tasted great. I bought the lemon coconut, chocolate chocolate and chocolate Italian cream. All were delicious, light cake, butter cream frosting...not the sugar loaded crisco stuff you get in many bakeries and supermarkets.

Cupcake prices were $2.00 - $2.75 but they had a bunch of interesting flavors like Black Forest and German Chocolate...even something called the Elvis.

They also sever other pastries, desserts, sandwiches and salads. The are on Madison Ave, off of Walnut Street.

  1. Is Bread & Chocolate in the space that was formerly a catering company and before that a tea store (I can't remember the names...)? I will have to check it out - If it is that space, I hope they have better luck than the previous two businesses. I guess it is kind of a hidden spot. Anyway, sounds great!

      I don't know what used to be there but I thought I read somewhere it was a catering spot, or an Asian take out or something, so that's probably what you're thinking of. They had a couple tables outside and 2 or 3 inside so it's mostly take and go. The pastries just looked amazing and if the cupcakes are any indication, I bet everything is delicious.

    2. Though I have enjoyed their cupcakes, my favorite item in the bakery is their donut cupcakes.

      1. In view of my tanking stocks, cupcakes are exactly what I need.
