Great place! My favorite local bakery. This place has been in Somerville for ages, and rightfully so.
Don't believe the "mediocre at best" review. I don't know if they reviewed the wrong place or what.This is NOT a coffee or lunch place. It's just a bakery. If you like baked goods, I bet you'll love it. Their moon pies and cakes are especially good, although I've liked everything I've tried. One thing I'll say is that they have very little savory stuff, so this is not a great place to go if you want loaves of bread or rolls or whatnot. If you need something for a special occasion or to satisfy your sweet tooth, go no further!

This bakery/luncheon place is an average place at best. Baked goods are barely passable, coffee nothing to write home about. Service was prompt and friendly but products served were a disappointment. It's a skip it im my mind.

We visited Lyndell's during my birthday weekend. I'm new to the Boston area and wanted to try the best Boston Cream Pie this city has to offer.

From the fresh chocolate frosting on top, to the spongy-soft freshness of the cake, Lyndell's did not disappoint! We also picked up a traditional black & white cookie to have for breakfast the next day. Oh my goodness. I can still taste the frosting and the freshness of the cake-like cookie part when I mention it. A person could get addicted :)

I've recently moved here from NYC, and this bakery has all the hallmarks of my favorite places in that city. I love a good mom & pop shop that has been in business for decades (in Lyndell's case , for over 100 years), and that has kept the old-school recipes and techniques from over the years.

Lyndell's is a quality establishment. I wish I were there now!
