Who has the BEST baked (read desserts, cakes, pastries) goods within 100 miles of Boston?

Don't post your neighborhood bakery either - I mean - when I take a walk in some european city like Brussels or Frankfure, or Nice, or even Geneva .... there seems to be no lack of exceptional pastries - baked fresh daily and well - and presented in wonderfularrays in windows. Where is one here????
I ran into "Popover's" in Portsmouth in NH because of their wonderful display - when they first opened - and was disappointed in the baked goods (cold popovers - and they would not heat them). Popovers has subsequently plummeted to being yet another corner version of au bon pain!

Flour in Boston appears to be a candidate for this list - but they too appear to have a VERY regimented display (although the dacquoise is TDF - and would be a star in any firmament)! Overall though, flour appears to me to be "exec chic" instead of "luminescence in pastry".

The "after theater" places are VERY lame - stuff cooked the previous day (or was it last week?) .... for those who don;t know their food, isuppose.....

Your thoughts for excellence in the supreme art of bakery?

PS - there seem to be very very talented individual bakers in the area ... for example, the wedding of a very close friendhad a cake which was extraordinary - AND - strwen with rose petals all over (may have had about a 100 roses on that sublime cake).... so they are out there - maybe just out of ones reach?
