I bought cupcakes for a birthday party at Bread and Chocolate in Newton. Wow, they were good.
I had gone to 4 other places yesterday looking for cupcakes including Vicki Lee in Belmont and Lilly's in Watertown and nobody had anything.
I stumbled on this place driving up Walnut Street, saw the sign reading Bread & Chocolate, my two favorite foods.
When I walked in I was greeted by a showcase of designer cupcakes that not only looked beautiful but tasted great. I bought the lemon coconut, chocolate chocolate and chocolate Italian cream. All were delicious, light cake, butter cream frosting...not the sugar loaded crisco stuff you get in many bakeries and supermarkets.
Cupcake prices were $2.00 - $2.75 but they had a bunch of interesting flavors like Black Forest and German Chocolate...even something called the Elvis.
They also sever other pastries, desserts, sandwiches and salads. The are on Madison Ave, off of Walnut Street. http://www.breadnchocolate.com/
