Fiore’s Bakery in Jamaica Plain Neighborhood of Boston, MA

Today’s all-day breakfast special, heuvos rancheros plate.

by LILLIAN LEE

The Super American made with eggs, cheddar, turkey, bacon, spinach, avocado, and spicy veganaise. They need to bottle that sauce up because it was so delicious.

This local, neighborhood bakery has become our Sunday go-to spot.

They’ve got delicious food for vegans and non-vegans – sandwiches, soups, bagels, smoothies, and pastries. Also, the coffee is on point. (Note, if you’re staying to work, which is what we do, coffee refills are just $1)

Traditional American/Italian Bakery and Bistro Specializing in Vegan and Vegetarian Offerings

I’ve only had a few things from the menu, but they were all tasty:

Jamaica Pond Sandwich

chicken or eggplant with red peppers, cartelized onions, provolone, pesto and tomato spread) with a side of roasted potatoes and salad greens

This is a tasty sandwich but a challenge to eat because it’s stuffed with so much goodness and the bread is pretty hearty. Everything ended up squirting out and so I had to use a fork and knife.

Italian Combo Sandwich

ham, salami, tomato, provolone, lettuce, olive oil

This was very tasty. The bread was perfect and it was pressed which made it even better because it tasted pretty much like a grilled cheese but with italian meats!

Blueberry Pie

Ummm…best. pie. ever! I loved the crust and the fruit was candy-tastic. I like my fruit pies sweet – not tart. And, I like my fruit pies to not be a runny mess. This was everything I hoped for and then some.

Tiramisu…s

The original was light, fluffy and airy. I’m a sucker for tiramisu…

but the almond version had a beautiful crunch from the almond toppings to the almond crust on the bottom.


Everything is amazing and I can’t wait to try all the other sandwiches and baked goods they have. Seating is a little limiting and it may take a minute or more for your sandwich to be ready, but it’s worth it. Plus, free wifi!

(Note: If you order a sandwich and eat in, you’ll get the side of potatoes and salad. If you do a take-out, then you’ll miss out on that)

It was super busy. One section was the bakery and the other was for coffee and boba.

Argentina Bakery

One of our first stops after landing in Dallas and getting the rental car was…empanadas and coffee. It was random but it was pretty close and on the way to our hotel.

So glad we made this pit stop because they were delicious – the flaky, buttery crust was to die for.

The Mister chose the traditional pecan pie.

I wish I could’ve tried them all. Also, the plates that they were served on and the whole ambiance of the shop reminded me of being in London for some afternoon tea.

We explored Deep Ellum and checked out Monkey King Noodle Co. for some spicy beef noodle soup and more. It was definitely one of the tastier beef noodle soups I’ve ever had – there was a lot of flavor.

The beef-iest tasting spicy beef noodles I’ve eaten but just a tad heavy on the oil.

Taiwanese chicken nuggets which we dippedin the chili sauce from the wonton dish.

After gorging, we needed something sweet so we walked down the street to check out the Monkey King Banana Stand. Super familiar sweets and yummy.
