  • The jam filled donuts are fabulous!!
  • The frosting, the cake, the atmosphere. This is everything I'd want in a bakery. The rumors about the tastiness of the half-moons have NOT been exaggerated. Get one.
  • If you don't get a half-moon cookie (a half-and-half, for the uninformed), you're simply a damned fool. Don't be a damned fool.
  • the day before thanksgiving or other major holiday... plan for crowds and waiting for an hour to get your pasties. at least they serve coffee though.
  • Half Moon cookie!!!!!
  • Cakes were basic, moist, and tasty.
  • A regular stop when I'm in Boston for their cake-style black & white cookies
  • The donuts are some of my favorites anywhere. They taste like your childhood memories of what donuts tasted like - pure, unadulterated, happiness. Also love the ruggelach when they have them.
  • In a world that seems to only care about buttercream frosting (blech), this place keeps it real with sugar frosting. Try the half moons. Do it.
  • Cupcakes. Do it.
  • The second of two donut shops profiled in our donut smack down. Read the full review at:
  • Awesome black and white cookies.
  • The half and halfs are the best.
  • Go to Lyndell's for great cheap baked goods. Try the strawberry-frosted cupcake or one of the many varieties of black & whites.
