This place is living on its reputation. We visited on a Sunday afternoon and the place was dirty. The trash containers were overflowing, the chicken soup was greasy and the bread was at best ordinary. There are great bakeries around Boston such as Clearflour and...More

I think there were a total of 8 customers and three staff still couldn't handle the pressure. Ham and cheese baguette had ham but no cheese. Macchiato took ten minutes to make. Ultimate insult was the butter cream frosted chocolate mini cupcake we bought to...More

Tiny Roslindale Village is in transition. Some business concerns are old-timey, some are what you expect with gentrification. Fornax Bakery is in the latter category. Excellent bread and baked goods, decent coffee and some delicious breakfast plates. Now you're paying for the good bread. A...More
