I have a wicked sweet tooth and I love visiting bakeries in and around Boston. My favorite bakery in Boston is BOVA located in the city's North End. The North End is known for bakeries like Mike's and Modern but I think BOVA is just as good. If you want to go off the beaten path and avoid some of the crowd on Hanover Street then head to BOVA.
BOVA has a terrific selection of cannolis, cookies, cupcakes, cakes, cream puffs and my personal favorite whoopie pies. The whoopies pies are huge and filled with fresh whipped cream. Delicious! BOVA also sells fresh baked bread, savory subs, calzones and pizza.
One of the best things about BOVA is that it's open 24 hours every day of the year. Yup, that's right, it's open 24 hrs, everyday. Not too many establishments in Boston are open 24/7. So for locals and tourists alike, be sure to visit BOVA Bakery. You won't regret it.
BOVA is located at 134 Salem Street. (corner of Salem and Prince streets)
