“Sells aged/dry pastry in the morning”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

His fresh pastry is good, but watch out. If you buy in weekday morning, you will generally end up with day(s) old dry pastry, sometimes even stale. Have complained numerous times and still get stuck with day(s) old stuff. If you want fresh, best chance is early or mid afternoon. Stopped going there after many years and after being shafted 5 weeks in a row in the morning!

“Best pastry shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

This is a long standing Newton landmark and the pastries are the best. If you want really good Italian pastry and don't want to drive in to Boston's North End then this is the place. I live in California and travel to suburban Boston 2-3 times a year and never miss a stop off at Antoine's. well worth it!!

“What a great discovery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

The cream puffs at Antoine's are honestly the best I've had since I was in Paris. I dare say better pastries than some of the "touristy" North End bakeries.

“Great local bakery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2013

Antoine's is a no-frills local Italian bakery in Nonantum (the northernmost borough of Newton). It's purely a retail outlet - there aren't any seats - but it's a great place to get cakes, pies, eclairs, cookies, sfogliattele, and so forth. Don't miss the cinnamon crescents.

“A Newton Institution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2012

I have to say, any bakery that still has a string machine to tie up the boxes of pastries is OK in my book! Let's talk about the baked goods. High quality. The canollis are better than one's you find on Hanover Street in Boston's Italian North End. I say yes to Antiones.
