Success! Thanks for posting your review of Appleton Bakery Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.

Coffee and more nestled between the South end and Back Bay

We have been to four coffeeshops closer to our place in the South end and decided to try something different. We had a chocolate croissant and pear-walnut muffin, and each a hot beverage. The muffin was fantastic; soft and delicately flavoured, but not too sweet, and croissant was flaky and buttery with just enough chocolate. However, my soymilk chai latte was just okay and not nearly hot enough, while my boyfrien... view more

Best Bakery in Boston

This is my second home! They have the best coffee I have been able to find and I am a picky espresso drinker. Their muffins, cakes and slices are delicious and their banana bread is to die for. Not only that, their sandwiches for lunch are delicious. Everything is always fresh and the bakery itself has such wonderful character. Staff are fantastic - always helpful and know the regulars' orders before they've walked i... view more

This place is a staple of the neighborhood and it has excellent prepared foods and baked goods. I am there almost every day and they really make everyone feel welcome.

Neighborhood Gem!

My wife and I love this place. It is always fast and the pastries and sandwiches are at least as good as anywhere else that we have found in this city after three years. The service is always very friendly and prompt. There is nothing better or faster than a toasted onion bagel with veggie cream cheese and a coffee on a Sunday morning. The informal atmosphere is just very cozy. Throw on a pair of slippers, pop o... view more

Good Lunch Spot

Decent bakery but could be better. Wish their croissants were lighty and flakier. Good sandwiches - breaded chicken cutlet/pastrami/ham/hot dogs are recommended. Good soups. Service is slow.

How much is coffee worth...?

The service of the front counter at the Appleton Bakery is such a shame. Everytime I have ordered an espresso drink I have been met with a huge sigh and roll of the eyes. I know making a latte takes a little more effort, but I think it comes with the bakery/cafe territory! On top of that, on my last and final visit there, I was very rudely reprimanded for only having a twenty to pay with, despite my apology and re... view more

Best in the South End

Delicious sandwiches, great hot soups for lunch on a cold Boston day, and the best Chocolate Chip cookie around! And I've tried all of them in the South End.

I've always found the staff, and particularly the owners to be great. Friendly and willing to go the extra step.

Nothing special for lunch...

Good looking selection of sandwiches if you judge by the menu. But the baguette bread was hard... and ingredients/taste so so. Nothing special or worthy of prices. The seating is cramped and small. Probably more of a take/out or breakfast stop.

I love this place!

Reading the previous reviews, I have to believe they were written by competitors! I have been a loyal patron for 5 years -- the coffee is always delicious, the pastries always fresh (some with gourmet twists like ginger peach, or fresh apple muffins with a cinnamon dusting). The breakfast sandwiches are fabulous and made to order (not in a microwave like DnD) -- the fresh fruit and granola is served with fat free y... view more

Dunkin Donut quality at South End Price makes for a tough recommendation
