When the urge for something sweet hits, choices abound not far from The Mark’s East Boston condominiums for sale, and the quality is second to none. Explore East Boston’s many bakeries and discover the “sweet life” that thrives here.
La Sultana Bakery’s shop at Maverick Square channels the rich history of Colombian baking. The tres leches cake and tiramisu, served with a cup of Colombian coffee, is worth second and third slices. Empanadas, flan, and arepas can be ordered during lunch or dinner, and a birthday celebration promises to become a bit grander with the addition of one of their beautiful and scrumptious cakes layered with multiple choices of fruit. Explore the many different baked goods on the menu here, but for those not as familiar or looking for something simply sweet though not entirely Colombian, the cheesecakes, cookies, and cupcakes are just as delicious.
Lolly’s Bakery is at the top of many dessert lovers’ lists. The cakes here are especially impressive, with a notably decadent tres leches that is ideal for any special occasion or social gathering. Their special event cakes are perfectly adorned and as beautiful as they are delectable, made with customizable flavors and designs. As well, Lolly’s Mexican sweet bread is both authentic and a favorite among regulars and new customers.
Helados Juli’s Frozen Dessert is a family-owned business serving authentic Latinx-style frozen desserts. Sourced both domestically and internationally, the snacks and treats are available year-round. Classic scoops of ice cream, cool shaved ice, and banana splits are all available alongside options like the Borojo—made with borojo pulp, honey, Milo chocolate powder, granulated cola, milk, and ice blended into a smoothie—and the Minuta Tropical—made with strawberry sauce, a scoop of ice cream, and shaved ice with up to three flavors, fresh fruit, drizzled condensed milk, and a dollop of homemade sweet tamarind puree. No matter the season, Helados Juli’s Frozen Dessert is always on the list for sweet delights in East Boston.
