Seven Stars Bakery
Seven Stars is the perfect place for a pastry, a cuppa, a shot of espresso, or a custardy quiche snack before (or after) a day of exploring the city. The quiche is worth getting your hands on (if you see it, order immediately since they sell out fast), as are the kouign amann, and the cheddar biscuits. And, if you’re feeling all Parisian in Providence, grab a loaf of their house-made bread: they bake up dark French rye boules, olive-studded batards, chewy sourdough sandwich loaves, and crunchy baguettes that all make for great picnic carbs.
