Excellent Bakery

Great selection, great service, excellent baked goods. Sometimes you will find you will wait in line, but it is worth the wait. The baked goods are excellent and always fresh. The Italian cookies are amazing.

I have been visiting this bakery for several years and everything by far exceeds my expectations! The cannolis' are fantastic and the flour less chocolate cake is a bonus treat for my dear friend who must have gluten free desserts. My favorite is the mile high chocolate cake and the chocolate dipped almond cookies and macaroons!!! Visit Ollie's for dinner... More

All of the pastries from Gerardo's Bakery are wonderful. Their "lobster tails" pastry is excellent, as well as cakes and tortes. I also enjoy the fact that you can stop by for a free coffee, to enjoy with your favorite dessert.

Bakery is not so good. Been disappointed with the quality of their products many times. Stopped going there a while ago. I'm Italian and I think I know good Italian pastry when I see it and I don't see it at Gerardo's. Many of my family and friends don't care for it either. Not terrible, but, you can do a... More

This bakery is definitely worth a stop by at. They have such a huge variety of treats, and all for reasonable prices too. There's a nice seating area inside as well. My partner and I stopped by to pick up an assorted box of cannollis for an event we were going to, and they were delicious. My partner and I... More

If you are craving cookies, go here. Hands down it is the best place for cookies in the USA. We live across the country, and this is a destination stop for us when we visit Massachusetts.

This bakery is awesome, they have lots to choose from. I original went to the bakery counter they have in Bolton, MA. But it is just a counter and pickup for cakes and etc. I wanted more of a selection and I had ordered a Birthday Cake/St. Patrick's Cake and wanted more to choose from. I was not disappointed. The...

A wonderful bakery with lots of choices including bite size goodies. Always walk out with more than planned, or you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee with your purchases.
