The owners work so hard at making the best tasty pastries, soups, salads, sandwiches that we're lucky to have them in our town. Give them a break about (not) smiling~ they're probably up at the crack of dawn so their customers will enjoy every morsel....More

I've had lunch at Acorns almost 100 times (or it feels that way). I get the soup and half sandwich and I think I'm addicted to Stacy's bread. The place is something special. It's like that Seinfeld episode ... you wonder what's really in this...More

You can't go wrong,at this bakery--every item is made to perfection! Hands down the best bakery in all of Wellesley, Dover, Needham, Norwood and Dedham. The food is simply superb, the atmosphere cozy, with a few small tables, and nostalgic decor. Favorites: Croissants and downtowners.

After moving to the west coast 2 years ago, we had to go to Acorns Bakery for their croissants the first day back in Needham. They are still the best! Thank you Stacy and Bill.

Have been going here for years. Delicious croissants and French baguettes, just like I enjoyed in Paris. Tarragon chicken salad on a salad or baguette is fantastic.

We have traveled all over France and these are the best croissants anywhere. I am somewhat addicted to the chocolate ones! We often entertain by having brunches and order quiches and their fabulous tomato tart along with their croissants. Guests rave about the food. It...More
