You know how most bakery cakes are dried out or flavorless....not here. Try the chocolate fudge cake with mocha frosting or for a special treat the key lime pie. You won't be disappointed!!!

We stopped for a quick bite after an early appointment in Boston on a Saturday. We got a soinach and feta croissant and a ham and cheese one. Both were delicious and generous, but would have been so much better heated. Since no one offered-- and it wasn't busy-- we assumed it wasn't possible. Yet when we sat in the... More

I have been here several times and I think it's a bit slow in terms of service. Took a good longtime to get order taken then get served. Quality is fine, if you're in a hurry it can be a little dragging.

Ordered the chocolate layer cake for my husbands birthday. It was moist and delicious! Also had the raspberry bars, lemon squares and the nut brownies. All delicious and quite decadent!

Nice cupcakes and breakfast items but the GF stuff is displayed openly right next to them. One crumb and -poof! It's not GF anymore! Coffee always a little burnt tasting but the service is pleasant and swift.

Really splendid cakes, cookies, pies, other treats, with a delightful staff. Rosie's definitely isn't cheap, but it's a great way to make a family member feel special, but picking something up here, rather than just grabbing something at the supermarket.

I used to keep trying this bakery or its counterpart in Inman Square, but I never find anything that is amazing. Sure, the cookies are good, but for a bakery that has been around for years, I can't figure out why it is so popular.

The cookies at Rosie's are something you can only dream of. The peanut butter chocolate chip and oatmeal are something I drive an hour out of my way just to have a taste. Anyone looking for a taste of heaven should have one bite of Rosie's cookies.

I have for 10 years purchased a Rosie's cake for my childrens' birthdays and have consistently been more than satisfied with the quality of the cakes. the double chocolate cake is superb!
