“Great Food at a not so great price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

I have visited the bakery many times, and really like their food.However, everything is NOT cheap.The gelato is waaay overpriced for the skimpy portions you will recieve.Still, the pastries are excellent and the belgian waffles superb.

“Best restaurant on the common”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

I have visited the Bakery often and so far everything I have tried on the menu has been delicious. Great menu selection for both breakfast and lunch. Large baked good selection of tasty treats every day and also newer gelato with classic and unique flavors. Location can not be beat with great views, eat in or take away for a picnic lunch on the common. The service consists of ordering at the counter and picking up your food when your number is called. Its very casual and perfect for a weekend lunch/brunch.

“Great food, Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

What a fun place right in the heart of a beautiful town. They have great sandwiches and pastries along with good coffee. It's a great place to meet people or just sit and stare out the window!

“Baked goods are the featured items.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

Bakery on the Common in Natick does a good job with the baked items they do on the premises. Other cooked dishes for breakfast and lunch are acceptable but not outstanding.

“They think they are doing you a favor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

The food is good here but the service stinks and prices are high. The general feeling I get when I do visit is that they are doing me a favor letting me pay high prices for food.
I only go here out of convenience. The attitude and high prices for average baked goods kill it for me.
