Brioche in MetroWest?

whimsey Jan 13, 2011 05:15 AM

Ever since B&R closed, I've been without a regular source of brioche, and lately my daughter has gone on a breakfast hunger strike. Any recommendations for decent brioche in MetroWest (I can't make it in to the bakeries in Boston or Cambridge that I know have it on a regular enough cadence).

    Sel de la Terre at the Natick Collection has a small bakery attached to it where I beieve you can find brioche. Give them a call.

      I stopped by there a few days ago, and they've stopped selling bread :)

        La Riviera in Wellesley has a French Bakery- call and seeif they make brioche maybe by special order?. I know they have croissants. If you find brioche someplace in Metro West please let us know.

          I'm pretty sure that Blue Ginger has brioche has part of their bread offerings at lunch - you could call them and see if they'd sell it to you - whatever it is, it's DELICIOUS.

            I know for awhile BG used to serve some bread from the bakery Susu (?spelling) in WEllesley. They may have brioche.

            Have you tried Quebrada, in Wellesley? I've never been, and don't know if they sell it, but I've had their cakes (very good), and have heard they do other things very well. Worth a shot, I'd think.

              This may be too far east, but the bakery/cafe in the Mall at Chestnut Hill has brioche.
