45 Best Breakfast Joints - The Boston Globe Magazine

...Dark wooden farm tables convey a homey feel, and so does the new weekend brunch menu that’s available at the Newton Highlands location. Highlights include the buttery croque-madame and the French (bread) French toast, surprisingly tender despite its baguette origins. The omelets are packed full, and the thick bacon will melt in your mouth.

Obessesd with Kugelhopf

...We had a game-changing, life-altering, obsession-making experience with some kugelhopf over the weekend. It was at a fabulous bakery in Newton, Massachusetts called Bread and Chocolate, and now we might not be able to rest until we figure out a way to recreate it at home. Have you ever had this confection? Kugelhopf is a kind of cake that hails from the Alsace region of France ... (more) - Emma Christensen

Best of Boston Bakery West - Boston Magazine

With the steady proliferation of Whole Foods, Bruegger's, and Panera, there's no shortage of places to stock up on baked goods out west. Bread & Chocolate, a three-year-old independent outfit in Newtonville, rises above all that mass-produced stuff on the strength of such house-made offerings as fluffy Irish soda bread, pecan-studded sticky buns, glossy fruit tarts, whoopie pies, and gigantic coconut cupcakes filled with lemon curd. The coffee shop atmosphere here goes a long way, too - and the ultracreamy cappuccinos help wash down every last bit of those oh-so-crumbly raisin scones.

The Tastiest Pies - The Improper Bostonian

There's the kind of banana cream pie you get from the Jell-O pudding box and the prefab Keebler Graham Cracker Crust. And then there's the real deal - you know, the one fashioned from a coating of bittersweet chocolate, banana slices nestled in gobs of fresh pastry cream, mousseline peaks and a crowning stratum of chocolate curls. At least that's the standard Eunice Feller sets at her charming Newtonville cafe, which is gearing up for Thanksgiving. "Most people have a holiday routine," she acknowledges, "and it's hard to break that and go to a new bakery." It won't be once you sample sweets from this case - which may show a few smudges here and there. "Kids come in and point to what they want in the case," Eunice explains, "so I judge a good day by how many fingerprints are on the glass." - Elizabeth Bomze
