I visited Koko Bakery for the first time today. I work not too far away in Waltham and wanted a quick sweet treat before heading to work. There was amble parking in front of the store. Upon entering the store, I was surprised to see...More

Delicious and varied pastries from classic and fresh croissants to imaginative Japanese-style goodies. Wonderful breads, the French baguettes are absolutely perfect. Also the granola is pretty much like candy -- or let's say, cookies. Easy parking and cheerful service.

My husband and I have a joke- if you want the best French Pastry, go to Japan. This little gem of a spot pops out perfection and the type of perfection that is expected in France and Japan. Loved everything. The staff are super nice,...More

KOKO Bakery is a local small artisan bakery focused on quality, not quantity. We provide handmade breads, pastries and sandwiches - always fresh. Most of our French and German style breads use leavin: a way of fermenting the bread dough. The ingredients are simple (flour, water, leavin and salt), the process is complex. Some breads take over 40 hours from beginning to end.
