Lyndell's has been at this location as long as I can remember and then some. They make everything from bread to cookies to cupcakes and cakes to Boston Cream Pie, regular pies, eclairs, cannolis, half moons, and tons of other stuff, even donuts. This place has it all. They now also serve lattes and espresso drinks. My favorites are the... More

I had never been there and decided to stop in for coffee and cookies. The coffee was bad and I was shocked at how dry the cookies were. I also found the owner to be abrupt and a bit rude. Clearly favoring her friends and regulars. I'm afraid this place is not at the level of Petsi's! I'm so surprised... More

I have been going to the Somerville location for years. On a regular basis I go on Saturday Mornings to buy donuts for the crew that comes to my house for coffee and donuts every Sat. There are any where from 6 to 9 people and we all agree that the donuts from Lyndell's Bakery are some of the best... More

Cakes, black and white cookies, donuts, breads. Everything is fresh and tasty. Don't forget to pull a number once your inside the door.

This review is based solely on the numerous cakes and cupcakes I have had from here... I know they sell a variety of cookies but I haven't tried them. The frosting on the cake is SO sugary. I like sweet stuff but this is overwhelmingly so. The cake itself could be a little moister, and the frosting is just overpowering.... More

My latte is my morning ritual and it has to be done right. I was driving by and saw Lyndells so I thought I can give it a shot. I have ordered a latte. It was very heavy and tasted like there was no milk in it. Their pastry section was very large, I might give another try to the... More

When I was a girl growing up on Willow Ave. (many years ago), this was a great treat for us. And though the sizes are smaller (as with everything else), the quality is still second-to-none. BTW, we used to call them half-and-half cakes; they are now called half moon pies. Also love the Boston creme pies (pictured). Still delicious!

This is a great place to get those puffy cakey cookies with chocolate and vanilla frosting, either called "Black and Whites" or "Half-Moons." Also, I am a custard pie lover - and theirs is really good.
