Padaria Brasil Bakery in Allston is a true gem. Located at 125 Harvard Avenue, its convenient to the 57, 66, and the B Line. I wanted to get a true taste of Brasil and heard good things about this little treasure. I was not disappointed!
The food is sumptuous and hearty with a robust flavor. Pastries are often flakey and moist, the meats are bold and spicy, and the sweets are not too sugary. The cafe con leche is sweet with a rounded, smoky finish. All in all I was impressed. My favorite cafe is In House but I plan to stop by Padaria weekly for my fix of Cafe con leche—the steamed milk makes the coffee have a delightful burnished flavor that’s quite addictive.
The pricing was fair and comparable to In House. Service was accompanied with a smile, and the employees were extremely pleasant.
Padaria Brasil Bakery in Allston gets a 5/5
Pop quiz: It’s midnight and you’re hungry. Where do you go for late night food? We’ve been wondering that ourselves, so we scoured the city in search of local restaurants that serve food late at night. From burritos at 3 a.m. to chicken and waffles until 4 a.m. and just about everything in between, we’ve rounded up 50 spots that will satisfy those nocturnal hunger pains.
Having been to Boston Kaju Tofu since, quite literally, the second day of their existence to just a few weeks ago, I can honestly say that it remains one of the best Korean restaurants in Massachusetts. While it pales in comparison to that of Young Dong or Beverly Soon in southern California…

Mixx is an amazing little self-serve frozen yogurt place just steps away from Gateway Real Estate’s office. I had the pleasure yesterday of venturing there for the umpteenth time and writing about my experience. Now that the warm months are upon us, I’d suggest everyone skip on over and partake in this cool, refreshing, wallet-friendly treat! Especially if you just finished signing a billion leases. Phew!
Because the pricing is based on weight, you are able to tell quite easily if you are going overboard with the fro-yo or toppings. You’re able to dish out a handsome helping of a variety of flavors as well, which range from the standard ‘plain’ flavor all the way to Taro and Thai Tea, as well as Cake Batter! Mixx does a great job of catering to the local demographic’s tastes.
The staff are exceptionally friendly, the atmosphere is welcoming and kitchy, and the price is completely to die for: roughly $3.30 for 7 ounces of frozen yogurty goodness!
Check Mixx out. If you live in Allston-Brighton, its the BEST place to go for Frozen Yogurt, especially if you like unique flavors!
