Memories to Treasure :: My Experience With Andre Toro Photography

This feature in our "Meet the Photographer" series was sponsored by Andre Toro Photography. We are pleased to recommend her to our readers!

Moms: Stop what you’re doing right now and look up Andre Toro Photography. I have mixed feelings about anything requiring a family photo shoot (*cough* holiday cards *cough*). The reason for my opposition is just how much of a chore it is to coordinate — a chore that is often put almost entirely on the moms. Well, this experience was the polar opposite, and I cannot recommend it enough.

Andre is a mom to two girls and has such a uniquely inspiring story. She was an electrical engineer with an MBA from MIT Sloan (casual) doing photography on the side — until 2018 when she suffered a concussion and received the wake-up call that this side project was truly her passion. And thank goodness, because her work is fine art! She captures the raw, beautiful authenticity of each of her clients and families.

While I’ve been extremely lucky to have some great photos taken of my kids and family, the experience with Andre is full service from start to finish. Let me share all the great touches Andre includes to make this an amazing experience for moms and families.


Andre set up a call to talk through the steps, timing, and process so we would be informed and relaxed when the day came. She then set up a time to come visit my home (I’ve never had this happen before)! During the home visit, Andre went over her packages and gave us recommendations for prepping for the shoot. But, most importantly, she got a feel for us in the comfort of our own home. She explored how our home was styled so she could make recommendations for the aesthetic. She also took measurements of walls we were considering hanging photos on so that she could design wall options for us.

After the initial conversation and measurements, we took a walk through our closets.  Andre shared that most people don’t think they have what they need in their wardrobes for a styled family shoot, but they always do! Her advice for styling was to avoid colors we couldn’t imagine hanging in our home and to not be “too matchy matchy” — you want a variety of colors and textures to give dimension to the photos. She helped me choose pieces for each person in my family, and then I sent her pictures of the final outfits ahead of the shoot day.


While the entire experience was lovely, one of my favorite parts was going to Andre’s gorgeous studio in Lexington an hour before the rest of my family to get pampered. Andre partnered with Ariana Lynn to do my hair and makeup — a service she provides for moms with all photo packages! It was such a relief to not have to think about this part and feel confident going into the shoot.

Andre has a styling room to hang your family’s clothing and for you all to get ready. Once my three men arrived, they got changed and then we hopped into the 45 minutes of photos.  

She made sure we got all the arrangements of kids and parents, so we had lots of options. The best thing about Andre’s style is that she just went with the vibe of my kids — two boys, 3 and 5, with a LOT of energy! They wanted to run around and change seats and stools, and they had very little time for any still poses. But, she was such a pro and made it fun and silly, which got fantastic results.


Right after the shoot, she gave the boys some little treats, which they loved. Once the guys took off, I got to sit right down with Andre and look through the shots. I’ve never gotten that instant review before, and it was a very cool experience to look through the photos for the first time together!

Through the review process, we put shots into yes, no, and maybe buckets to narrow it down to the finals she would edit. I couldn’t believe what she captured through the chaos of two wild little boys on a Friday afternoon. It was hard to choose — there were so many great ones.

Once we landed on our finals, Andre got to work on edits and then sent us a gallery. She was also able to show me a variety of ways I could style the wall she measured during her visit to my home. It was so cool to see the rendering!

Once the gallery was finalized and sent to us, we got the prints included in our photo package and had the opportunity to select some beautiful add-ons. It was a full-service experience from start to finish.

Andre’s work really speaks for itself, and I can’t recommend this experience enough to moms. Andre takes all the stress out of coordinating a family photo shoot and delivers a gorgeous reflection of the uniqueness of your family — memories to treasure forever.

Turning Back to School into Mom’s New Year | Episode 9: Wicked Good Momcast

Women’s Pro Soccer in Boston — and Rooting for Women’s Sports

Female soccer player (National Women's Soccer League)

Did you hear? Women’s professional soccer is coming to Boston! The National Women’s Soccer League announced that Boston will be the 15th team to join the league, and the home matches will be played in a revitalized George R. White Stadium in Franklin Park — right in the heart of Boston.

In my house, with soccer-playing daughters and a couple of parents who love sports of all kinds, we’re super excited about this news. I mean, we love cheering for the Revolution at Gillette as much as the next guy, but our Rapinoe and Morgan jerseys will look even better at a women’s game.

Plus, as a woman, I also happen to love that this soccer club is backed by an investor group that is 95% women. (Do you even have to be a woman to love this news? Maybe I just love it as a human.) This actually feels like leveling the playing field (or soccer turf), not just talking about it.

The only downside to this news is we have to wait until 2026 for our Boston squad to take the field. So for all you fans and supporters of female sports, here’s what we can do in the meantime:

1. Watch women’s sports on TV.

My family was pretty crazy about the recent Women’s World Cup that was played in Australia and New Zealand. There were a couple times where everyone in my family* woke up at 5 a.m. to watch a big match live. 

*And when I say everyone, I mean everyone. My husband wasn’t doing it to make a big deal of men supporting female sports; he just likes watching good soccer. But to all you dads, it does show your kids something.

If soccer isn’t your thing, there are so many televised sports to get excited about: tennis (if Coco isn’t an example of female power, who is?), the WNBA, swimming, even field hockey. With streaming TV, we now happily have access to competitive sports played by men and women.

2. Catch a women’s collegiate — or high school — game.

In Greater Boston, we have a gazillion colleges and universities, most of them offering free (!) games for your family to check out. Even high school sports can be fantastic to watch; I cheered on our local Brookline girls’ varsity soccer team in the playoffs and was blown away by their fast and aggressive play. Showing your daughters and sons what the next level of sports looks like will open their eyes just a bit wider.

3. Encourage female coaches and mentors.

Why are almost all the youth sports coaches men? Don’t get me wrong, good sirs, I appreciate your service. It’s just that I think our kids need to see some women holding the clipboard. Moms, we are the ultimate multi-taskers and get-it-done-ers, so you know we can coach, too.

But if a female coach isn’t in the cards for your team, you could seek out a local high school or college female to run a few private workshops with your kid. My girls worked with a Colby College soccer player this past summer and were clearly inspired by her.

4. Wear your favorite (female) athlete’s jersey.

And I don’t just mean this for all the little girls out there. Imagine a day where a boy wears a Naeher goalie jersey to practice or writes a bio on Serena Williams for school. And one where all the kids are talking about the match the night before, when she booted an amazing power kick into the top corner of the goal.

Am I crazy to dream it? 

Or maybe not so crazy, if others are dreaming it too.

With the last bit of mild weather upon us, these slushy, refreshing, tasty treats are a guilt-free way to celebrate Halloween with your littles. This activity allows the kids to practice healthy choices in a fun and on-theme way. Get the kids involved by allowing them to pick the color they’d like their spooky smoothie to be. Next, brainstorm with the kids and write down a list of fruits and veggies that are the color they chose. Take that list to the grocery store and pick out the ingredients for your smoothies. My family chose green, white, and orange. Spend time decorating your smoothie containers with fun Halloween-themed stencils. We chose mason jars and decorated with glass pens, but you can use regular glass cups, mugs, styrofoam cups, or plastic cups. Once everyone has decorated their containers, peel and cut your ingredients. Blend with ice. Use fun reusable straws, and enjoy!

Goblin Green Smoothie:

Bok choy
Green apple
Ice and water

Pumpkin Orange Smoothie:

Orange juice

Ghostly White Smoothie:

Dragon fruit
Honeycrisp apple
Coconut cream


Think “pigs in a blanket” but HALLOWEEN STYLE! This super easy and inexpensive treat is sure to keep your family happy this Halloween.

Cut crescent roll dough into long strips. Wrap the strips around each hot dog, just like a mummy! Place seam down on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes (depending on the thickness of your dough strips). Serve with ketchup and mustard!

Bun-length hot dogs
Crescent roll dough


This one’s a fun after-school or after-sports snack for kids of all ages!

Slice apples and lay flat on a plate or platter. Use melted peanut butter, melted Nutella, or caramel sauce to drizzle on top of the apples. Top with the toppings of your choice!

Melted peanut butter, Nutella, or caramel sauce
Shredded coconut
Chocolate chips

Alternate toppings: nuts, raisins, mini marshmallows, butterscotch chips, etc.!

These pops are perfect for a fun monster treat for younger kiddos — or tweens who want to “try it themselves.” They’re chocolatey, easy, and have endless decorating possibilities! 

Ingredients and Materials:

  • Large apples (expect to get 4 slices out of each apple)
  • Melting chocolate
  • Cake pop sticks
  • Sprinkles
  • Candy eyes
  • Tray lined with parchment paper


  1. Wash and thoroughly dry your apples, then slice them vertically. Make sure the slices are thick enough to stick a cake pop through. “Dry” the flesh of the apples with a paper towel to suck out some of the juice.
  2. Melt your chocolate using a microwave or a double boiler.
  3. Poke the cake pop stick into the apple, making sure it doesn’t poke out the other side. 
  4. Dunk the apple into the melting chocolate. To prevent the apple from sliding off, use a spoon to help brace the non-stick side. 
  5. Let the excess chocolate drip off, and place the apple on the tray with parchment paper. 
  6. Decorate quickly, before the chocolate starts to dry!
  7. Once finished, set the apples to harden at room temperature. Do not put them in the refrigerator or freezer (unless you want a giant, mushy mess and a very disappointed kid). 


By Chelsey Weaver, Boston Moms Community Engagement Coordinator

This easy-to-make dessert is a crowd pleaser (or at least it was, back in the day when we had crowds!) and has lots of easy variations! You can make them as simple or elaborate as you and your kids want, and they’re still just as delicious! 

Ingredients and Materials:

  • Marshmallows 
  • Cake pop sticks
  • Melting chocolate
  • Sprinkles
  • Any other decorating materials
  • Cape pop holder (can be as simple as holes drilled into an Amazon box!)


  1. Put your marshmallows on the cake pop sticks, and arrange them into the holder.
  2. Arrange all decorating materials (since you’ll have a limited window to decorate!).
  3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or double boiler.
  4. Dip the marshmallow into the chocolate to the desired depth, let the excess chocolate drip off, and place back on the cake pop holder. 
  5. Decorate! You may need to decorate one by one so you don’t end up with chocolate that’s already hardened!

Want some other decorating ideas? Make the marshmallows into a pumpkin, ghost, Frankenstein, monster, candy corn, Minion, or mummy. Or, add white-chocolate-covered pretzels to the cake pop stem to make a skeleton.

Roll up your sleeves and embrace the “crafternoon.” We know your schedules are crammed, but try to set aside time to get messy and CREATE together!

Follow these easy instructions to create your own stained “glass” candy corn for Halloween!


Black cardstock or construction paper, orange tissue paper, yellow tissue paper, white tissue paper, contact paper, scissors, a pencil.


1. Fold your cardstock in half and sketch half of a candy corn shape as a guide when cutting (see pictures below for examples). Cutting while the paper is folded will ensure you have a symmetrical candy corn!

2. Cut out the candy corn shape. Be careful to center the candy corn on the paper so you have a “hole” in the cardstock paper and the entire paper is not cut.

3. Cut a piece of contact paper just large enough to cover the entire piece of cardstock.

4. Lay the cardstock on top of the sticky side of the contact paper.

5. Allow your child to decorate inside of the candy corn with tissue paper shapes or scraps! The contact paper will ensure all the tissue paper scraps stick inside of the creation.

6. When your child is finished, place another piece of contact paper (sticky side down) on top of the candy corn shape. This will “seal” your artwork and ensure nothing stays sticky!

7. Tape your art to a window, and let the light shine through like stained glass!

A Twist (or Squeeze) on Pumpkin Painting
By Sarah Casimiro
With an almost 2-year-old and a 4-year-old in our home, pumpkin carving is out of the question, especially when the little one is quick to grab and run away! This year, we decided to paint our pumpkins, but in a less traditional way — using fluorescent paints and squeeze bottles!
Starting with an old, unused, vinyl tablecloth, we set the scene for an easy cleanup — outside. We then filled each squeeze bottle with a different paint color. Next, the fun began. My 4-year-old pointed and squeezed paint all over each pumpkin, taking care to cover and layer the colors atop each gourd. Once each color was added, she used googly eyes in various shapes and colors on each pumpkin. The biggest pumpkin even had the honor of being decorated with tiny, colorful, glittery pompoms.
Last, and why I’m most thankful we completed this project outside, she sprinkled (i.e., dumped) glitter all over her newly painted friends. This all happened while the almost 2-year-old danced, laughed, and pointed at the pumpkins her sister decorated, shouting “punkin!” and “pwitty!”
The end result was a pack of psychedelic, festive Halloween pumpkin monsters that we now have proudly displayed on our front porch! Fair warning — if your child is as heavy-handed with the paint as mine is, it will likely take more than 24 hours to dry! 

It’s apple season. It’s pumpkin season. And we’re combining BOTH for this fun craft. Follow these easy instructions to create your own apple stamp art!


White cardstock, apple, paint


    1. Cut your apple in half directly at the core (revealing a pumpkin shape!)
    2. Dip or brush orange paint onto the flesh of the apple
    3. Stamp onto cardstock!

BOO your neighbors! (more info below)


By Megan Samborski, Boston Moms Contributing Writer
“Boo”ing our neighbors is an activity my daughters have so much fun with every year! 
What is “boo”ing your neighbors? In our neighborhood, boo’ing begins in early October, when families create fun Halloween packages or treat bags and anonymously leave them on another neighbor’s doorstep. The package has instructions on how to keep the fun going and surprise more neighbors in the weeks leading up to Halloween. Your neighbor will hang up the sign on their door (which you include in the package) announcing they have been boo’ed, then they’ll “boo” two more neighbors. 
Ready to get started?
  1. Gather your supplies — candy, stickers, Halloween flair, or decorations (make it as spooky as possible)! The Dollar Tree and Target dollar section have so many fun trinket options.
  2. Print our free BOO printable to add to your package. This gives the recipient instructions on how to keep the fun going throughout the neighborhood!
  3. Create your package or treat bag and leave it with the instructions on your neighbor’s doorstep!   
We love this activity every year because it promotes some community fun in anticipation of Halloween, and the kids love trying to guess who “boo”ed them! With the uncertainty of Halloween festivities in 2020 and social distancing still in play, this is a tradition that requires no interaction but is still a lot of fun!

In our house, it seems like someone is always asking to play tic-tac-toe. With Halloween right around the corner, we have a ton of tiny pumpkins laying around! So, I figured, let’s make a tic-tac-toe board! You can use real gourds if you’re a sucker for the bins at Trader Joes like I am, or you can use plastic pumpkins from the craft store or Target dollar spot!

This is a fun game for older kiddos using things you probably already have around the house!

Label black (or any paper) bags with spooky words like “witch fingers,” “eyeballs,” “worms,” etc. Place mystery items from around the house in each bag. Ask your kids to reach in and feel the sticky, gooey, silly insides. See if they can guess what’s really inside!

Items to include:

Banana peel covered in olive oil
Nuts or shells of nuts
Rubber glove filled with flour or water
Cotton balls

Make a monster! Transform the craft supplies you might already have lying around the house into a fun HALLOWEEN activity!

Offer your kids modeling clay or playdough along with things like googly eyes and pipe cleaners, and they’ll be busy for hours!

Print out this Halloween scavenger hunt, then take a walk or drive around the neighborhood to search for all the festive items!

Use our Halloween candy bingo to mark off all the favorite sweets you haul in this holiday!

5 Myths of Breastfeeding :: From a Lactation Consultant Who Knows!

woman breastfeeding baby at home

Breastfeeding can be amazing, but it is not always easy! While it is instinctual, the milestone of breastfeeding is a new skill to be learned by both baby and mom. Unfortunately, there are many myths and misconceptions that make breastfeeding more difficult than it needs to be. Take it from a lactation consultant who has been there — and who knows how to help! Here are the five breastfeeding myths local lactation consultant Anne-Marie Sandoval wants to help moms work through.

1. It’s easy

Raise your hand if you have ever cried as your baby screams at your engorged breast dripping milk but just wont latch! (My hand is raised.) Despite breastfeeding being innate, it is often not easy.

The good news is, you are not in it alone! As a lactation consultant and registered nurse specializing in pediatrics, I treat moms and babies together as a cohesive dyad. You may benefit from partnering with a lactation consult for trouble with latching, sore and damaged nipples, concerns over baby’s weight, low milk supply, breast engorgement, and needing to pump. Getting help early can make all the difference in your breastfeeding journey! I happily offer free prenatal consultations.

2. Medications and breastfeeding don’t mix

One of the biggest breastfeeding misconceptions for medical providers and moms is around medications. This misconception can lead to overly cautious advice that interrupts breastfeeding or leads moms to forgo medical treatment out of fear that the medication will harm their baby. The truth is, there is reliable information available on the safety of medications while breastfeeding that moms can access in order to make informed decisions. Not all medications will be compatible, but moms deserve accurate information! The Infant Risk Center is the pioneer of lactation and medication research and information.

3. All pumps are equal

The breast pump industry is dizzying with its countless choices. I am not here to endorse any brand but to point out the importance of considering your needs when choosing a pump. Is there a medical reason why mom and baby will be separated after birth? If so, I recommend a hospital-grade pump. These can usually be rented by local medical supply companies or off the pump maker’s website. Maybe you’re a second-time mom who wants to pump on the go (school pickup line, anyone?). I recommend a wearable pump for moms to use on occasion for convenience and with established milk supply. For returning to work, many moms find a double electric pump works well at removing milk multiple times a day. No matter which pump you choose, ensure the flange fits you properly and pumping does not hurt.

4. Lactation treats and supplements will increase my milk supply

Eat the cookies! But not because they are a magic wand for your milk supply woes. Eat them because they are delicious, and lactating moms need about 500 extra calories a day. The FDA generally does not approve dietary supplement claims or labeling. Furthermore, there is very little conclusive clinical research to show that any herb or supplement alone can increase a mom’s milk supply. If you are concerned about a low milk supply, it is best to chat with a lactation professional to review your individual risk factors and create a plan.

5. I won’t know if baby is full

Breastfeeding can be elusive and full of nuance. However, there are specific and clear ways to know if a baby is satiated/full after a feeding session. Signs that a breastfeeding session went well includes rhythmic audible swallowing, milk visible in and around baby’s mouth, a calm baby who is easy to put down after feeds, softer breasts than before a feed, lots of wet and dirty diapers, and, most importantly, weight gain for baby. If you have concerns that feeds are not going well, contact your pediatrician and a lactation consultant like me!

No One Ever Told Us :: Our Experience with Febrile Seizures

Content warning: This post contains a detailed account of a medical emergency experienced by a very young child.

mother checks baby's forehead for fever (febrile seizures)

We all know the journey of parenthood is filled with joys, challenges, and countless surprises. But some surprises are not the kind you want to encounter — like febrile seizures. Our son was not even a year old when we first had this terrifying experience. And the shocking lack of information about febrile seizures left us feeling scared and unprepared.

A terrifying night

Our son was 10 months old on New Year’s Eve, and we were staying overnight at the home of some college friends — a tradition we have had for more than a decade. After lots of time playing and catching up with the adults, we put our son to bed in a nearby bedroom. We knew the excitement and new surroundings would have him up at least a few times throughout the night, so I listened intently to the baby monitor and checked on him constantly.

At about 10:30 p.m., he woke up and cried, so I headed to his room to comfort him and nurse him back to sleep. Holding him in my arms, he suddenly un-latched and froze. He was stiff — as if paralyzed — and twitching, with his eyes rolled back. Something wasn’t right.

I yelled for help and carried him out to the living room where my husband and our friends were. Panic set in as we tried to comfort him, fearing for his safety. We called 911, and everyone helped to quickly remove my son’s clothes and lay him on his side on the floor while we attempted to calm his tiny body.

We were fortunate that our group of friends included a paramedic, several former EMTs, and an emergency medicine resident, who rode with us in the ambulance to the hospital and helped us to remain calm. I’ll never forget the helpless feeling of seeing my son seizing and not knowing what was wrong or what to do.

In the ambulance, my son started moving normally again but seemed exhausted and confused. We nervously arrived at the emergency room, not knowing what to expect. As we described the episode to the doctors, we were asked several pointed questions: What was going on when it happened? How long did the seizure last? Had my son been sick or had a fever recently?

Getting answers

Although time had stopped for me, one of our friends had watched the clock as it all happened, and baby’s seizure clocked in at 10-15 minutes. We shared what we knew with the doctors, and they did a full exam on my son. His high fever tipped the experienced medical staff off right away that what had happened was a simple febrile seizure — something neither my husband (a former first responder) nor I had ever heard of.

The doctor told us that febrile seizures are caused by a high fever in children from 6 months to about 5 years of age, and they occur in 2-5% of children. They are often recurring.

After ringing in the new year in the ER, we were relieved when we had the all-clear to discharge. We were instructed to monitor my son’s temperature for fever (100.4° or higher) and use fever-reducing over-the-counter medication (such as Children’s Tylenol). We took my son back to our friend’s house and reassured everyone that he was going to be OK.

Early the next morning, we woke up to loud moans and screams from my son. Rushing to his side, we were confronted with a terrifying sight. Our little one was lying on his back, his body jerking uncontrollably, his eyes rolled back. He was having another seizure. This time, we knew to act quickly and to take note of the time. We quickly hopped in the car and headed back to the emergency room. This time, the seizure lasted much longer — it was nearly an hour before my son stopped seizing and “woke up” from the episode.

The longer time frame and repeat instance classified it as a complex febrile seizure, so the doctors admitted my son for monitoring. Over the next 24 hours, we stayed by him as he lay in a tiny hospital crib dressed in a toddler-sized hospital gown, an IV in his arm. He remained a happy guy, enjoying the attention and new toys offered at the pediatric wing of the hospital, while we focused on his comfort and getting his fever down.

Our doctors eventually agreed that what had happened was another febrile seizure. They recommended we continue to monitor our son’s temperature, since a fever can trigger another episode. The doctors assured us that febrile seizures are distinct from other types of seizures and, on their own, are not an indicator of any other seizure disorder. Nearly half of children who experience a febrile seizure will experience another, but the vast majority of children with febrile seizures do not have seizures without fever after age 5.

The importance of awareness

Fortunately, our son has not experienced one since, and we are hopeful that, at nearly 5 years old, he has grown out of them.

Now that we know what febrile seizures are, we feel more confident about what to do if my son, or other babies or young children we know, experiences one. It is always scary when your child has a medical crisis, but we are thankful we were able to act quickly and had access to caring professionals who helped my son to recover. My husband and I were also thankful for their patience in teaching us so we have a critical awareness of febrile seizures. While the seizure itself shocked us, we were just as surprised by the fact that we had never heard about them before.

Why is it that febrile seizures were not part of any of our standard caregiver education conversations? How had we never come across this in our parenting books? This question has continued to concern us. As first-time parents, we had diligently educated ourselves about common childhood illnesses and injuries. We were well-versed in childproofing our home, administering first aid, and recognizing the signs of many health issues. However, febrile seizures had never been on our radar, and that was a glaring gap in our knowledge.

This lack of awareness can lead to panic, confusion, and even delayed medical intervention, which is far from ideal during a crisis.

We are thankful for our son’s health every day. But the experience left us with a valuable lesson: It’s crucial for parents and caregivers to be informed about the possibility of febrile seizures and how to respond when they occur. Knowledge can make all the difference in providing the right care promptly.

For more information about febrile seizures, please consult the following resources, and be sure to talk to your child’s pediatrician.

The Best Independent Coffee Shops South of Boston

cup of coffee (best independent coffee shops south of Boston)There are few moments as universal in motherhood as having been woken up during the night by a fussy baby or needy child. By the time the sun starts to peek through, you’re exhausted and in need of caffeine to make it through the day. And you’re in luck — you can find some amazing independent coffee shops south of Boston! Dunks and MaryLou’s will always have their place in our Boston hearts, but if you’re looking for somewhere new to recover from a sleepless night, we’ve got six coffee shops for you to try!

Lucky Finn Cafe :: Scituate Harbor, Scituate Driftway, Hanover

The views at the Scituate harbor location are tops, and the co-working spaces at Driftway and Hanover come in clutch on those days when you need a change of scenery from your home office. Lucky Finn gives you the perks of the big chains (app ordering) with the small indie vibe we love.

Redeye Coffee Roasters :: Hingham

Another local coffee spot with can’t-miss views of the water, Redeye Coffee Roasters has the added bonus of roasting their beans on site. This shop is locally owned, and their beans are ethically and sustainably sourced — it’s a caffeine boost you can feel good about!

Coffee Shack :: Marshfield 

The kids will love it here just as much — if not more — than you will thanks to the freshly made doughnuts in the brightest, funnest colors (in flavors like cake frosted and whoopie pie!). There is also a variety of smoothies and sandwiches to choose from if you stop by at lunchtime. 

Jolly Bean Cafe :: Plymouth

If you’re hungry, you can’t beat coffee and breakfast at Jolly Bean Cafe in Plymouth. Set up on one of the super comfy couches or let the littles run around the outdoor picnic tables. There is an extensive breakfast and lunch menu with options for every palate. 

Restoration Coffee :: Bridgewater, East Bridgewater, Whitman

The coffee at this south-of-Boston shop is the true draw here. Comfy seating, convenient locations, and strong Wi-Fi are also big perks, but Restoration Coffee is quickly becoming known to locals as the coffee aficionado’s cup of choice.  

Seabird Coffee & Co. :: Cohasset, Duxbury

Thinking of a cup of coffee and a drive along Boston’s South Shore? Seabird is your go-to. Stop in for a great cup of coffee or an iced chai latte — my personal favorite. The food options vary depending on the day, but Friday doughnuts are always a huge hit with the kids! 

Slow Coffee :: Weymouth

Right around the corner from South Shore Hospital and next to the beloved Cameo movie theater, you’ll find Slow Coffee. Their unique lattes (pistachio rose and hojicha are a few recent favorites) and delicious housemade pastries make for a one-of-a-kind experience. Note that they are closed on Wednesdays, so be sure to check the calendar before you make the trip.

Boston’s Beloved Jewish Delis :: Our 6 Picks for Bagels, Pastrami, and Challah!

Zaftig's Delicatessen in Brookline and Natick, MA
Zaftig’s Delicatessen

Before I met my husband 15 years ago, I had never experienced authentic Jewish cuisine or savored a proper bagel. When I married my better half, I joined a family with rich Jewish traditions. As my mother-in-law once suitably described me to my sister-in-law, “She is a good eater.” Indeed, I am! My husband proudly introduced me to some of the finest local Jewish delis, and over the years we have discovered more gems together. I’m excited to share my cherished list of favorite Jewish delis and bakeries in the Boston area!

Kupel’s :: Brookline

Nestled in picturesque Brookline (which also served as my first official U.S. address!), Kupel’s is a longstanding Jewish delicatessen full of history and loyal customers. In my humble opinion, they craft the finest egg bagels and chocolate rugelach. Their challahs are nothing short of exceptional, and their deli sandwiches are fantastic.

Barry’s :: Newton

Situated in Waban and our go-to for holiday feasts, Barry’s never disappoints. I recommend their kugel, chopped liver, and chicken noodle soup — a comforting remedy in our household during the cold and flu season. They also offer a small and casual dining area for breakfast and lunch, a tradition my husband enjoyed as a child with his papa — and still cherishes as an adult with his father.

Blacker’s :: Newton

Yet another Newton gem, Blacker’s is well known for offering nut- and dairy-free options while maintaining strict kosher pareve standards. Their repertoire boasts traditional bakery items like cakes, cupcakes, breads, and pies. For a taste of classic Jewish fare, try their chocolate babka and their delectable challahs.

Rosenfeld’s :: Newton

Conveniently located in Newton Center, Rosenfeld’s offers exquisite bagels and challahs. Personally, I gravitate toward their whole wheat challah and delectable chive cream cheese. They also offer traditional Jewish deli bagels. This is the place where I typically buy bagels and Shabbat breakfasts.

Zaftigs Delicatessen :: Brookline and Natick

Established in 1997 in Brookline and later expanding to Natick, Zaftigs has become one of the best-known delis in the area. From counter delights to pre-order specialties and a full-service dining experience, Zaftigs caters to every palate — and everything about the place is super family friendly. Whether it’s a laidback brunch, a quick lunch, or a hearty dinner, their menu offers an array of delicious sandwiches, including Jewish staples like corned beef and pastrami. Additionally, they serve substantial dinner plates designed for two or three people.

Mamaleh’s :: Boston, Brookline, Cambridge

A relative newcomer on the Jewish delis scene, Mamaleh’s was first established in Cambridge in 2016 and later expanded to Brookline and downtown Boston. It has quickly become a go-to destination for bagel sandwiches — and more! With a modern flair that appeals to a diverse range of fans, Mameleh’s offers an extensive menu featuring traditional Jewish deli sandwiches, like the classic Reuben, alongside non-pareve options like pastrami cheeseburger.
