Good selection of muffins (Blueberry, Cranberry, Pear/Ginger, Carrot) for $1.75. Good scones. Excellent soups. Soup & sandwich combos are very good.

I've been visiting Wellesley Bakery and Cafe for two years now and they are the best in the area for lunch. Everything is homemade and fresh. The atmosphere is a bit lacking but they are also very good for takeout. One of my favorites is their tangy salad dressing (salads have great portions for an inexpensive price). Muffins are also...

I drop in here often for their California rollup (my favorite) or the chicken salad rollup. And a nice big fat chocolate chip cookie to finish it off. Anyone I have taken here has loved the food. It doesn't look like much - a green door tucked into a recessed opening just 2 doors up from the library. Hard to... More

I'm a longtime loyal customer and I've eaten more than my fair share of their carrot muffins. The croissants are the best around and in the winter the soups are a mainstay of my lunch menu. Particularly recommend the lemon rice soup, almond croissants, veggie wraps.

Delicious homemade bread used on sandwiches. Every thing is so tasty you will want to eat lunch here every day for a year to sample all of the different soups, salads, and sandwiches.

Family run with great soups, quiches, salades and sandwiches, always fresh and satisfying. Light enough to temp you to try some of the fine bakery desserts and scones. Also a favorite for regulars and we alternate with the half sandwich/quiche and salad or soup in summer and winter.

Tucked in a little store front where Wellesley Square just begins after the public library, Wellesley Bakery is a jewel in the rough...kind of! Wellesley Center has so many...almost ostentatious...shops which caters to very well-to-do customers, but there are no bells and whistles to this bakery - only healthy and delicious muffins, scones, croissants, sandwiches, quiche, soup and salads made...
