Incredible doughnuts

Great selection of all kinds of pastries. Friendly, attentive, helpful staff. Parked on the street, though it was a Sunday morning - early - so I'm not sure how accessible this place would be on a work day. Got a dozen doughnuts and a half-moon cookie. The doughnuts are easily the best I've... read more

We were visiting Cambridge this past weekend from the southeast (the land of many good things but one of them is not bakeries). I love how this is a neighborhood bakery. We love the cannoli, almond cookie with chocolate, cream puffs, macaroons. The bakery does a version of black & white cookies I haven't seen elsewhere--fluffy cake that is more... More

I absolutely love this place. First and foremost the baked goods are outstanding. I especially love the black and white cookies, which are coated in so much frosting you will feel like you are eating frosting with a side of cake. The prices are extremely fair and maybe even on the low-end compared to other bakeries. Staff is super friendly.... More

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
