Review of The Baker

The Baker
Ranked #1 of 4 Dessert in New Bedford
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 December 2017

I follow the Baker on facebook and they posted they would have Malasadas for the weekend. They posted it as “This lemon-laced, super soft, Portuguese fried dough is covered in super-fine sugar”. We were heading to the Z for a matinee show and since the Baker is around the corner we thought we would stop and pick some up if there were any left.

There is no off street parking for the Baker. There is limited street parking since it is down the street from the police station a good portion of the parking is reserved for police vehicles. There are pay parking lots in the area. Not sure you want to pay to park to just pick up some bake goods. I dropped off my spouse, he ran in made the purchases, I circled the block and he was done. We were able to purchase 3 that day. We took them home to eat.

All three varied in size, color, consistency and density. They were covered in fine sugar and had a light covering of grease. The darker ones had a harder outer shell but light and flakey inside. The paler one had a softer outside and was flaky on the inside. They had a light lemon taste. They were OK, not the best I have ever had. Not really loving the lemon hint. I would not make a special trip for them.

Highly recommend following them on facebook and if you see something you like, plan on being there when they open or soon after.

Best Croissants this side of the Atlanctic Ocean. Baguettes can't be beat. The remaining items are just great. Amazing staff

If you like your donuts and pastries, then The Baker in New Bedford is for you!

Everything is super delicious at this place. Rolls, donuts, pastries, coffee...everything. It's a cute spot nestled in the heart of downtown and has a charm all of it's own. Service is always pleasant and quick. Check this place out!

All the hype for this place is well deserved. The food is first class and without question the best place for baked goods in the area. The croissants are perfect and the bagels are heavenly! I haven't tried something from this place that wasn't top notch. Do yourself a favor and get there early to avoid lines!
