Jonquil's Cafe & Bakery review image

Jonquil's Cafe & Bakery


Jonquil’s is a Newbury Street cafe that makes artistically-shaped desserts that everyone around will be taking pictures of (e.g. tiramisu shaped like a giant coffee bean). It has a decent menu of healthy-ish bowls and toasts, a bright, airy space that feels like an art gallery, and sidewalk tables. If you’re shopping on Newbury, it’s a perfectly acceptable place to stop for lunch, but don’t expect it to be a particularly memorable meal.
