Recurring Event Event Series: Newton Bakery Crawl!

Newton Bakery Crawl!

September 30, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

All Over Newton presents the Newton Bakery Crawl

What could be more delicious than strolling through Newton on a gorgeous autumn day, exploring one bakery after another, trying their unique treats, while supporting a bunch of Newton’s smallest brick-and-mortar businesses? You may want to pull on your stretchy pants and grab your sneakers because The Newton Bakery Crawl is almost here! Pick up light-as-a-feather conchas, the most exotic croissants we’ve ever tasted, award-winning chocolates–, and that’s just for starters…

Ten Newton bakeries will fling open their doors to celebrate National Bakery Day (September 30–who knew?) and welcome Bakery Crawlers into their shops to wow us with their culinary creations and tempt us with a variety of discounts, specials, promotions, freebies & samples. Interested? Read on to learn more.

HOW THE CRAWL WORKS

This is a do-it-yourself event. ALL Over Newton has worked with the 10 participating bakeries and listed their locations, specials, and hours, and provided a map to help plan your bakery visits. That information is posted here.

Make sure to let bakeries know you are part of the Crawl to receive their promotion!

Participating bakeries have a Newton Bakery Crawl decal on their windows with a QR code that, when scanned, takes you to the Crawl landing page and a map, helping you decide where to crawl next.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT EACH OF THESE BAKERIES?

No two bakeries in Newton are the same–not even close. Each one reflects the owners’ backgrounds, expertise, and interests, catering to different tastes. Here’s our high level summary of each one. For more info and special offers for The Crawl, just head to the Bakery Crawl landing page.

BETTINA’S BAKERY
295 Elliot St., Newton Upper Falls

Run by two professional chefs–Bettina is from Germany, Naun is from Honduras–and both were trained in the US. The best schnitzel in the city, how-can-they-be-this-good conchas, and perfect seasonal pies, are just a few of their offerings. On Saturday morning, from 7:30-11, you can also pick up floral bouquets at Bettina’s from Lotus & Lettuce.

BLACKER’S BAKESHOP
543 Commonwealth Ave., Newton Centre

The only nut free, dairy free, kosher pareve bakery in Newton. Their nut free rugelach is a baking feat.

BREADSONG BAKERY
349 Auburn St., Auburndale

Sweet and savory baked-from-scratch goods from a neighborhood shop that does it all.

COUNTRY DESSERTS
60 Lexington St., West Newton

Down-home cooking doesn’t get any better than this. Rumored by many to have the best muffins in the city. It’s hard to disagree.

FLOURHOUSE BAKERY
140R Adams St., Nonantum

Sister company to Mike & Patty’s sandwich shop in Boston, serving up their Best of Boston breakfast sandwiches, vegan English muffins (with a cult-like following), and a vast variety of breads, cookies, and outrageous twice-baked almond croissants.

THE ICING ON THE CAKE
230 Adams St., Nonantum

Except for their quintessential first-come-first-serve cupcakes on Fridays and Saturdays, the rest of this bakery’s items are all made to order. It’s a not to be missed stop for cupcake fans.

LAKON PARIS PATISSERIE
1169 Walnut St., Newton Highlands

The owner and chef, Jenny Kiangkaew, is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Thailand, and her spectacular croissant creations–made from imported French butter– are like nothing we’ve ever seen (or tasted).

LITTLE L BAKERY
232 California St., Nonantum

Japanese baked goods with completely different flavor profiles than we’re used to. Every bite here is top notch, but we love experimenting and trying items we can’t get anywhere else–like green tea azuki scones, Japanese milk bread, and red bean buns.

SALT PATISSERIE
792 Beacon St., Newton Centre

With its award-winning chocolates and over-the-top baked goods, it’s hard to know what to choose from SALT. We ♥ it all and go for a 1:1 ratio–selecting one chocolate for every cookie or tart.

WOOPS!
79 Union St., Newton Centre

French macarons in a rainbow of colors and flavors. A perfect (gluten free) indulgence and the perfect cookie for gift-giving.
