Whether itÂ’s for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or the ending to a delicious meal, no day is complete without a sweet treat. With help from our May/June 2011 issue, weÂ’ve put together a list of some of the places that we think serve up the best sweets in New England.

Bakery Sweets

Bakery Sweets

BEST CUPCAKE
Shabby Chic,
Windham, NH
The confections here are works of art and taste equally divine. Dive into the moist decadence of, for example, “Vanilla Cranberry Swirl,” “Salted Caramel,” or “Cinnamon Pear,” topped with clouds of flavored butter cream.  4 Cobbetts Pond Road. 603-898-2442; shabbychicwindham.com

BEST CHOCOLATE INFUSION
Chocopologie Cafe,
South Norwalk, CT
No apologies for sweet-tooth temptations from breakfast to bedtime: cocoa-intensive baked goods for dessert and candies such as ginger-passion fruit. There are savory offerings, too, and a French-accented menu that includes cocoa-braised short ribs.  12 South Main St. 203-854-4754; chocopologie.com

BEST BAKERY
Sofra,
Cambridge, MA
It doesn’t sell French breads or chocolate layer cakes, but this Mediterranean-inspired pastry shop from Oleana’s Ana Sortun and Maura Kilpatrick has elevated the Boston sweets scene with orange blossom-scented morning buns and the best falafel wraps in town. 1Belmont St. 617-661-6131; sofrabakery.com

BEST PASTRY
Pastiche,
Providence, RI
Even Bostonians have been known to eschew the South End and brave I-95 for Pastiche’s seasonal fruit tarts, chocolate hazelnut tortes, and layer cakes in flavors like Coconut and Raspberry Almond. 92 Spruce St. 401-861-5190; pastichefinedesserts.com

BEST PUMPKIN PANCAKES
Sugar & Spice,
Mendon, VT
Hunker down to light-as-a-feather flapjacks in flavors like buttermilk, blueberry, and crowd-pleaser pumpkin, crowned with pure maple syrup. Dessert after breakfast? Of course–a maple-crunch sundae! Route 4. 802-773-7832; vtsugarandspice.com
