We stopped by Eldo for a couple of slices of cake "to go". The pastry case looked terrific. Unfortunately, our cake choices were disappointing. The cake texture seemed stale and dry. Maybe it was the type of cake. I was expecting a standard style cake...More

My friends took me here for a cup of coffee and a dessert. We just sat with the locals in the cozy table set ups. There was a wide variety of dessert to choose from, making a selection was hard.

Not often that I get to sample some original Chinese bakery items but stopped into the Eldo Cake House and enjoyed their egg custard, the pineapple bun, and a coconut-encrusted that was fantastic. Wish we had more time to have sampled more of their product.

Love their fruit topped birthday cakes and desserts. Prices are reasonable compared to an American style bakery. Their fresh baked breads are always very good. Nice place to go if you can make a decision...so many choices!

A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences,
visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine
and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the
iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,
and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest

many restaurants around Chinatown. From traditional
Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide
