Well, for Italian pastries - I'd say Modern Pastry. For pies - definitely Petsi's. Cookies - Lakota Bakery. Blueberry scones - Quebrada - sooo good. Other than that - don't go the bakeries too much.

Paul, an international French bakery chain that is beyond great! It's downtown at One Boston Place, 201 Washington St. and Cafe Madeleine, a small bakery on Columbus Ave. in the South End, also outstanding.

Danish Pastry House, by a long shot and I've been to almost every place within 95 that mixes up flour, sugar and butter then bakes it.

Maria's is my favorite.... never pre-filled. If you get a box to go they'll give you a container of filling on the side....the way it's supposed to be done.
