roslindale's sugar bakery co. adds dinner service.
"The restaurant is a “pleasant surprise for people,” according to Batitte. “I like to call it ‘fine dining in disguise,’ ”he says. “My main goal has been to do dinner. It’s been a project, but like Rozzie, it’s a work in progress.”
Taking advantage of its close proximity to Roslindale’s bustling farmers’ market---it’s practically across the street---Chef Cristophe Gest is using market finds to inspire the menu every weekend through October."
one of "boston’s best new restaurants of 2011"!
A good brunch is hard find. If that’s what you’re looking for, stop by Roslindale’s Sugar, where decadent French toast stuffed with brie and fig jam or “choose your own adventure” omelets get the day started off right. Sandwiches and comfort food take you into the afternoon with style.
best brunch place.
"Between the hungover college students and the young professionals looking for a good way to start the day, weekend brunch has become an institution in Boston (or really, any major city). There is no lack of places to get brunch in our city, and no lack of solid places to get brunch. Amid this abundance, Sugar Baking Co. & Restaurant still manages to stand out as quite possibly the best brunch place I’ve ever been to."
"This visit to Sugar was one of the most successful restaurant visits I’ve had in awhile. The service ran smoothly, thanks to Sugar’s team atmosphere and friendly and efficient servers. Roslindale Village isn’t necessarily the most convenient destination for residents of other Boston-area neighborhoods. But with freshly baked bread, an emphasis on local ingredients and sustainable produce, it’s easily worth the drive."

a breakfast (and more!) to remember.
Any restaurant with the words “sugar’’ and “baking’’ in its name has to be worth a visit. In this case, Sugar Baking Co. & Restaurant is worth several visits. In the few months it’s been open, the cheerful 45-seat cafe has already gained a well-earned reputation for its wonderful breakfast and weekend brunch. People wait up to an hour and a half for Sugar’s manchego grits ($9 with ham and sunny-side up eggs) and lemon ricotta pancakes ($9), not to mention the best stuffed French toast known to mankind.
See for yourself. Go in an off-hour — early or late — and you'll get a table; we walked right in at 1 p.m. on a Sunday. In good weather, the large accordion-type windows are open to the street; there is no room for outdoor seating on a busy sidewalk.
About that French toast ($11): Picture two thick slices of homemade challah, dipped in milk and egg with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Stuffed between the warm slices is a slab of brie and some fig confiture. The brie melts into a delicious ooze and offsets the natural sweetness of the dish, and the figs add a nice fruity note, as do the blueberries and strawberries that garnish the plate.

one-pot short rib stew.
The two course serving (broth with crusty bread followed by short ribs and veggies) of this traditional village style dinner is a nod to the thoughtful, simple elegance of hearty yet healthy fare. It typically results in a mild urge to light the fireplace and read a chapter of Canterbury Tales. We hope you'll come enjoy this experience at Sugar Baking Co. beginning in late April!

Billy and the TV Diner crew stop by the shop and Johnny wows everyone with his command of all things French.

The Company Tartine - that's French for open-faced sandwich - at Sugar Baking Company & Restaurant in Roslindale is a winner. Waffled challah is spread with ginger remoulade and topped with shredded milk-braised chicken, baby arugula, and slices of dried apricots. A beautiful example of more is more.
