Lulu’s Sweet Shoppe used to be located on Salem Street in the North End and recently (well, not so recently) moved into the former Cocoanuts space on Parmenter Street.

I headed over to the North End after work to meet two of my favorite old interns who both now live in the neighborhood. They suggested that we head over to Bacco, a two story restaurant on the corner of Salem Street. The sun was shining and the windows were all open – we grabbed […]

If you were just walking around the North End, you would likely pass right by this dark alley. At the end of the alley is Bricco  Panetteria, a small bread bakery (and a separate pasta shop). Bricco Panetteria is owned by Frank DePasquale and all of the breads that are served in his restaurants (Trattoria […]

Modern Pastry is a family owned bakery in the North End, located across the street from Mike’s – a little less well known to the tourists…but those in the know go here for their cannolis. They recently renovated the space next door and opened a brand new space around Easter. The new space is much […]
