Great place for cake and coffee

After struggling to find a table anywhere else on a Saturday night, we got one here straightaway. Whilst most people seem to come here for cake, we had pasta and a prosciutto and fig pizza, the latter being particularly good. Of course, we had to try the cake whilst here, and opted for the apples... read more

We were here 15+ years ago and it has remained in our minds since! It was worth the return visit! We had the chocolate molten cake and Boston cream pie. I only have a couple comments about our server Jhonathan, 1) he never checked back with us to see how our desserts were and 2) I ordered a side of... More

Finale used to be a really awesome place, and while the desserts still hold up, I get more and more disappointed by the new management every time I visit. About the desserts: if you like dessert this is the place to go. These are artful plates of absolute bliss. I promise they are worth the price tag and the debate... More

Food perfectly acceptable, but waiter informed us that we could not have tap water unless we purchased alcoholic beverages. Shameful! I was there with my underaged children. I think this policy is discarded il and therefore cannot recommend this restaurant.

Why not! Indulge!! Decident...get what you want & don't look at calories, fat or anything stupid like that. Enjoy the bakery. Splurge. Get individual desserts & enjoy them til you smile! Thus place is coveted to us. Our children understand & feel the same. It's a special place.

Dessert was delicious! A bit pricey and not many options. Staff seemed annoyed that we did not know how to order. But it's open late.

I chose this restaurant as it was attached to the hotel I was staying at in Boston and I wanted somewhere close by to eat. The entrance is at the "back" you need to actually walk around and enter from there which in itself is confusing. I went on a Saturday evening and it was reasonably busy but I did... More

Use to be a great place to go for dessert and coffee. We went after the theatre and there was ONE waiter for the entire place. We could not get water because the dishwasher was broken and there were no clean glasses....so makes me wonder how were the plates getting cleaned? The bathroom was a disgrace water, towels and trash... More

Excellent selection of desserts and a great follow up to a nice dinner out in Boston. Went here to celebrate my husband birthday and we each tried a different dessert and shared. Would definately return.

If you want the best dessert in Boston and want to go where the locals go, skip Mikes Pastries and head here. Melting cake, cheesecake, creme brûlée, gelato, tarts, Boston Cream Pie...the list goes on. So many beautiful desserts and everyone delicious! If you can't decide, order the sampler. You can even have wine and champagne with your dessert experience.... More
