Old-Fashioned Sweet Treats

Lyndell’s Bakery in Ball Square has been open for business in its original location since 1887. A modest-looking place, they pride themselves for using old fashioned baking methods in keeping with their long-standing tradition.

Boston Globe readers nominated Lyndell’s one of the Boston area’s 5 best bakeries this month, and for good reason: they are one of the oldest scratch bakeries in the country and are revered for their honey-dipped doughnuts –  along with their half moons, homemade cakes and other confectionery treats.

  1. Because I have a compulsive sweet tooth, I try to stay away from those places; although I have been to Lyndells: Good Stuff!

  2. I usually don’t have too much of a sweet tooth… unless I’m standing in a delicious bakery, and then it wells up out of nowhere. I love their black and white cookies… yum.
