HELP! Dessert/Coffee Back Bay/Newbury area suggestions needed for Wed 11/25


So I'm meeting my boyfriend's mother for the first time tomorrow and would like to find an early afternoon dessert place; they would have just had lunch and will probably be close to Hynes Convention Center/Prudential Center.

Trying to avoid the Cheesecake factory; looking for somewhere we can sit down and that's somewhat nice (avoiding the metal chair thing; cushy chairs and booths are a plus :-). Good desserts are helpful. Perhaps areas in lobbies in hotels and what not. So I guess atmosphere is more important, and of course excellent desserts/coffee would be a huge plus.

So places on Boylston, Newbury, or Huntington are great; they would have probably parked near Symphony Hall so we can wander down there as well.

  1. I think that if you called Sel de la Terre on Boylston, they would be able to accommodate you for this request. Their desserts are lovely. I would ask to be upstairs. Ask for a table by the windows overlooking Boylston Street.

    The grande dessert for two is impressive and will give you a topic of conversation.
