“Forget the North End bakeries, this is where it's at, super high quality!”

La Luce Pastry Shop
Ranked #3 of 3 Dessert in Dedham
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 December 2016

Delicious, truly perfect pastries. The best cookies I've ever had - the Christmas cookies they have, well, don't bother baking your own! Butter, butter, butter - no skimping here! And beautiful to look at as well. The black and whites (AKA half moons) are wonderful, super fresh, and you can choose between vanilla cake or chocolate cake - I've never experienced that, as vanilla is the norm, so nice to have the option! Excellent cannoli and muffins; wonderful carrot cake - so many delicious offerings. I'm a frequenter of Mike's and Modern in the North End - after La Luce, ha, nope, never more - as La Luce is just THAT MUCH BETTER than the strongholds of the North End. Go south people, go to Dedham, forsake the North End for your pastries, and go to La Luce - I'm a convert and I recommend that you be one, too. The ingredients shine, the highest quality, and gorgeous care taken with each pastry/cookie/creation - very personal, handmade, delicious and beautiful.

We came across La Luce when they first opened a few years ago and have kept going back ever since. La Luce has absolutely delicious pastries. Every Christmas we order a big selection of treats for our Christmas day brunch. Every single pastry I have tried has been so scrumptious. My favorite are these butter cookies with either a lemon or raspberry center. The half moons are absolutely amazing. La Luce is our go to place whenever we feel like indulging or for special occasions. This is a MUST try. Hidden gem in Dedham!

Their prices can tend to be high for a cake but the quality is excellent. Their individual items are delicious as are the various croissants. I just saw that they gave homemade granola which I'm dying to try

I love sweets, I mean I can thrive on them every min of my life!!! I was walking in the historic part of Denham MA when my hubby asked to have breakfast. We went in and oh, I got a chocolate chip muffin and he got a blueberry one and a ham cheese croissant! The muffin is heavenly! You can't get better than this, in fact I won't bother having another muffin that is not to par with this one!! Ladies, on your cheat diet say, this is the place to go! You won't regret it. The location is also exceptional. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5, it's because their tables are kind of dirty!!! It's a shame to have to wipe your table yourself before sitting down!!

The best croissants I have ever had in New England.
Nothing short of the real deal: They could be sold in Paris.
Warning, they are addictive!

Now, if you have a doubt, I invite you to do a double blind test:
Grab few friends and go to Whole Foods, Panera bread, other bakeries, etc, even go to Clear Flour Bakery in Brookline, and buy a croissant in each place.
Go back to La Luce, and buy a croissant there too.
Now, blindfold everybody, and have a blind "taste" You'll see exactly what I mean: When you'll bite into the croissant made by La Luce, you'll be transported back to Paris.
