My company uses DPH for all of our cupcakes and cakes. We also suggest them for weddings and events. Oh my they are good! Their assorted cupcakes are to die for and all of our customers now request them.

Danish Pastry House is tucked in back of an industrial/residential area in Watertown. They offer decent freshly made sandwiches and homemade soup at lunchtime. Their whole grain breads are fresh and especially good, worth stopping on your way by to bring a loaf home.

The cupcakes provided by Danish Pastry House for our wedding were so delicious and beautiful that I can't even really explain it. I know, some of you are probably like "come on, it's a cupcake. How good can it be?" Well, please let me try to explain. First of all, the flavor combinations they so artfully put together were nothing... More

These guys sell to all the big Hotels in Boston. The croissants are excellent and the people are the best. I hope they open up outlets in accessible locations as that would be a great hit. Make the effort to get to this place.

Many places sell "Danish." Unfortunately for those of us who love and crave actual Danish pastry, you know, the kind they have in Denmark, what is sold in the U.S. as "Danish" pastry is heavy, doughy, iced, overly sweet, has a dollop of jam, and is made with vegetable shortening. REAL Danish pastry is airy, flaky, made with real butter,... More

I was working nearby and asked some of the folks where to grab a quick breakfast nearby - everybody suggested this place, which is a little difficult to find. From the outside, it looks like a hole in the wall, but when you get inside and see the treats, your eyes will open up wide like you were a kid... More

We have been here many times usually to refill our balsamic vinegar bottles (more on that later) and find the pastries to be unique, fresh, and always good. This particular location is primarily a to-go shop with one table if you want to sit. Despite its size and industrial location, there is a constant stream of patrons. They also sell... More

This bread and pastry shop is tucked away on a side street in Watertown, but it is worth finding because they bake everything right there. I went to buy their kringle which was wonderful, and the cookies and lemon squares are great too. they told me that their main store is actually in Medford, so I made a point of... More

I went to this place expecting to see pastries like the kringles at: http://www.ohdanishbakery.com/ They do have a kringle, but it's for breakfast only. This place seems to specialize in various American and European pastries. If you're looking for some funky and decadent pastry of the month maybe this place is for you. They quality seems to be very good.
