My husband and I have been loyal customers of Sugar Bakery for several years. From their jam-filled sugar cookie "pockets" (which they call "brambles") to their luscious pastries, tarts and super-moist layer cakes, we've never had anything of theirs that wasn't scrumptious. The staff is lovely and accommodating, especially considering that this small bakery is usually filled with customers. We've... More

Many of the cookies here are what I call "white bread" but I give Sugar 5 stars for their almond macaroons. They have this one variety that's lemon frosted and oozing with such almondy goodness that it will make you cry. The mouthfeel of the soft buttery filling is a sensual delight. I don't ever want to know how many... More

I live in the neighborhood and go only to Sugar Bakery for pastries. To my surprise, on occasion one can find 'sfogliatelle', which is a Neopolitan pastry made with crunchy flaky pastry and a filling of ricotta and orange peel. Having lived in Italy for many years I can vouch for its authenticity. Simply delicious, as are all of their... More

We enjoyed a delicious, moist and pretty dolka dot cake from this bakery several months ago. I returned to try an eclair. It was delicious. The help is very pleasant. There's a neighborhood feel, here - families and worker bees popping by. Tables and chairs available. Near Boomerangs if you like thrift shops!

If you're in need of a cupcake for a birthday (or just one for yourself...), christmas cookies, or a raspberry lime rickey, this is your place. It's a pretty classic New England bakery in their selection (lobster claws etc.) and it's really, really good. Everything I've had is fresh and delicious!

This is our go-to bakery when we are in need of a dessert to bring to someone. We often order birthday cakes. Most recently picked up assortment of a half dozen cupcakes - a creatively delicious variety. Would love to see offerings expand to include VEGAN and GLUTEN FREE.

Totally happy with this bakery, which is aesthetically appealing (clean and bright), well located on the West Roxbury central strip and as mentioned attached to a great deli. It has friendly service, reasonable prices and a very nice selection. Double check the hours, it is somewhat blending the standard bakery hours with a "dessert restaurant" hours in staying open later... More

This is a classic New England small town bakery - great variety, breakfast and dessert treats, good coffee. The prices vary from reasonable to a bit inflated depending on the baked goods. (After 2pm there are steals on leftover breakfast pastries!) If you're looking for fresh baked goods, this place is definitely worth visiting.

I'm so glad we ordered a dozen Brambles, these little pieces of yumminess are addictive. I had an almond macaroon too, just for good measure. This bakery could only improve by offering even more variety. The person helping us was very nice and friendly.
