Apple cider donuts?

Catsmeow - we didn't see a line for fresh donuts - and this was only at 10:15 am, so they had just opened! They had a special line for the donuts at the side of the building, not near the regular registers, and they were 6 to a bag. Maybe that's where you bought them warm? They really weren't very good. The Volante ones weren't warm either, but they were *so* much better. Such a disappointment!

Apple cider donuts?

We *loved* Honeypot Hill in the past (I commented in 2011!) but we went there yesterday, and they were prepackaged and really mediocre.

In contrast, Volante Farms in Needham is KILLING it with their donuts - they're best when warm, but even if they're not, they're crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, and taste like apple cider.

Sending a healthy (ish) gift basket or snacks to hospital staff?

SO thoughtful of you! I bet that they loved it!

Planning a Function

We just went to a rehearsal dinner at SS, and it was DELICIOUS. totally surprising, but everything from the salad to entree to dessert was fantastic.

Juniper restaurant opening in Wellesley on July 9, 2014

Only in Wellesley! There are actually a lot of people who WORK in this town and would love some more good lunch options. Waiting!

Weekend lunch at Chestnut Hill?

I've heard great things about Daikanyama, but haven't eaten there myself.

Must Haves at Oleana and Bergamot for Tonight/Soon?

You can skip the sole at Oleana.

DEFINITELY get the falafel. My DCs loved the sultan's delight (I don't eat beef so can't comment!).

El Yucateco Green Hot Sauce - Where to Buy?

That stinks!

My husband, the hot sauce fanatic, suggested the Shaw's across from Best Buy in Dedham on Rt. 1, but call first.

Or - how about calling the Stop and Shop in JP?

Let us know where you find it -

No bathroom at the (West) Rox Diner?!

According to Yelp reviews, Pomodoro has a (tiny) bathroom, at least as of this summer.

No bathroom at the (West) Rox Diner?!

We noticed that while there used to be a customer restroom at the West Rox diner, there's now a sign that there's no longer a restroom for customers - is this "legal"? I thought that if you were a restaurant that served more than a certain number of customers, you had to, by licensing laws, have to have a bathroom...?

Just curious - as someone who once schlepped two 3 year olds through the kitchen to use the tiny tiny bathroom - and was grateful that it was there!

Wax candy wrappers?

Right? I bought some online for that very reason! Why I can't find it locally is beyond me.

Wax candy wrappers?

Not really - I'm just lazy and want it precut :)

Wax candy wrappers?

I hear you, but my caramels are way too small for that - and so the cupcake wrappers would be a little pricey, right? I need 100 wrappers, which should be about $4. I learned not to use the foil kind the hard way, last year :( VERY painful!

Wax candy wrappers?

I'm looking for those wax candy wrappers - I'm making caramels for holiday gifts. I couldn't find some at Michael's, and I'm worried that I'm too late for an online source... Any suggestions? Metrowest is best.

Thanks!

I agree - lunch is just fine, but dinner is OUTSTANDING.

Need vegetarian options (at least) around Newton, Dedham, Wellesley

We just had the summer board @ Sycamore and it was DIVINE. Loved it and very reasonably priced. Make sure to get the beignets for dessert. Enjoy!

Trablit coffee extract?

Thanks! I found some Nielsen-Massey coffee extract at Sur la Table so I'll get that.

Trablit coffee extract?

Thanks. Cardullos didn't have it. Boston gourmet chefs did, but it's $54 for 33 oz. I need about 1/2 an ounce!

Thanks!

Maine - Bath, Brunswick, Boothbay area recommendation?

Actually, I have. I still think that Trattoria Athena is better than most of them.

Maine - Bath, Brunswick, Boothbay area recommendation?

I couldn't agree more. We ate there last year and it was unbelievable. Going back next week and can't wait. Rivals anything in Boston.

Which ice cream stands don't make their own?

REALLY? It never tasted that good to me, and I love Richardson's. Huh.

disappointed by Blue Ginger

That's really disappointing. I eat lunch there every other month or so, and the service is always fantastic. I'd let the manager know.

ISO Ice cream stands where kiddie size does not mean a scoop the size of a baby's head

Ladycale - my kid. She can eat me under the table in ice cream consumption (this is no small feat). 7 years old, tall, and pretty lanky.

Lizzie's in Needham has a "mini" size.
