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.

Maria's, hands down. Mike's and Modern are tourist traps.

number one in Boston is truly Clear Flour Brookline.
Anything from Konditer Meister Braintree...
Mocha cakes from O'Briens in Quincy, or if you get there early in the morning a jelly doughnut!
Greenhills Irish in Dorchester. Bova's mainly because it is always open
The ricotta pie at Torretta's in Revere is the best. @TheSagest has done extensive research.
Antoine's in Newtonville
