Overrated at times...

Everyone talks about this place; however, I have found it somewhat hit or miss. The butterscotch crumb cake is wonderful. They warm it briefly in the microwave and serve it with whipped cream on the side. The butterscotch inside is delicious melted. However, when I've tried the vanilla cake... read more

We love everything about Pastiche, from the delicious desserts to the location on Federal Hill. Very small dining area, so you may have to wait if you want to sit down with dessert and coffee, but certainly worth the wait.

The dessert's are awesome. I had butterscotch cake which was really good and paired it with coffee. The variety of dessert were really worth spending money. I visited the bakery many times and WOW, it never failed to impress.

Others make look similar but Pastiche is hands down the best bakery anywhere! Order early, let someone drop you off to pick up cakes & pies because parking is tough or cram into a small space for late night coffee & dessert. Delicious!

It's a tiny little store with a quaint atmosphere, but be prepared to wait for a table in cramped quarters. Although they've been around forever and get rave reviews, the desserts are just ok, nothing fabulous, really. The service is always pleasant, but they are always so busy, you never see your server much.

Forget dessert at the restaurant where you ate- come here instead for dessert and coffee (espresso of course...). Or pick up pastries to take home for a treat for Sunday brunch. Fantastic selection and all are delicious. I stop here every time I visit Federal Hill, and often make a special trip even if I'm not in the neighborhood. Worth... More

The desserts are wonderful. They use in-season fruits, so that delectable blueberry cobbler is only available for a month or so. It is a little pricey, but worth it.

The crazy long line is totally worth the wait! They make, by far, the best Carrot Cake in the world. Ok, I've never had Carrot Cake outside New England, but I'd bet the farm there is none better. You will not be disappointed.

Whenever I'm in Providence I stop here. Everything is incredibly delicious. They have great coffee too! IT's such a cozy place, love the fireplace in the winter, it's so warm & cozy. In the summer, it's so comfortable with the ac. It's just so perfect there with the awesome pastries & awesome coffee in a comfy & cozy setting.

If you have a sweet tooth, head on over to Pastiche in Federal Hill. You will not be sorry! I've tried a slice of just about all their cakes at this point, and everything was delicious so you really can't make a bad choice here! Better than most of the bakeries in Boston and when I eventually move from Providence... More
