I liked the look of things once I went inside, too. They had whoopie pies:
and something really magical called Alpine Cake, which I want to try next time.
but on this trip I kept it simple and got the toasted anise cookie with icing and rainbow sprinkles (or jimmies, if you must).
Not only was this cookie pretty to look at, but it was sweet to eat: buttery-crumbly, slightly softer than a typical biscotti and fatter, and scented with anise, but not in an overpowering way. It was a perfect post-breakfast cookie after a massive morning feast at the nearby Rox Diner, and ideal when paired with milky coffee.
So you know what I say? Go to Sugar Bakery in West Roxbury.
