In a city where there are as many
Dunkin' Donuts locations as there are pigeons looting through their discarded
pastries in the parking lot, an actual bakery
-- where somebody actually baked said
pastries, and knows what's in them -- is a welcome thing. A homemade (or
brewed) bakery treat is often the best part of the day, whether it's the cup of
coffee you need to kick start your morning or a fresh, yummy scone to get you
over the mid-day hump.
1369 COFFEEHOUSE: is giving away free drinks until 1, and collecting donations for the Boston-based charity Partners In Health, which sends doctors to poor countries around the world.
FLOUR BAKERY: both locations are donating half of today's sales to Haiti.
COLLABORATIVE EARTHQUAKE RELIEF EFFORT FOR HAITI: today from 10am-6pm at Hiberian Hall in Roxbury, accepting donations of food, clothes, and money to Partners In Health, American Red Cross, and Boston Foundation.
