Easter goodies at Cardullo's, Cambridge

Cambridge’s Holiday Spirit Persists

Cambridge can help you be extra sweet to yourself during bitter times. With Easter and Passover around the corner, local shops are working hard to provide festive fare. Celebrate with their treats and stay safe by using pickup options plus contactless delivery.

One-Stop Shops for Easter and Passover:

Tatte
Spoil yourself silly with the holiday menus cooked up by this popular bakery and cafe. During Passover, try Valrhona dark chocolate-covered matzoh. Then on Easter, delight in traditional hot cross buns.

EH Chocolatier
Dark caramel honey bunnies, colorful marshmallow chicks and double chocolate Passover cookies! EH’s artisan selections include loads more sweets — flourless and dairy-free offerings too.
 
Violette Bakers
This gluten-free bakery has everything from playful chick-shaped cookies to fancy French macaroons. Their dairy-free pies make for scrumptious leftovers the morning after your celebrations.

Unconventional Passover Delights:

BerryLine
You can opt for unconventional Passover dessert with dairy-free ice cream from BerryLine. How does mocha or Mexican chocolate sound? How about both Passover-friendly flavors?!

Honeycomb Creamery
Honeycomb Creamery whips up locally sourced, all-natural desserts. Their dark chocolate sorbet and mint cookies and cream ice cream are dairy-free for Passover. They also have a horchata ice cream that tastes just like the Mexican rice milk treat. 

J.P. Licks
Salted caramel oat milk ice cream is calling your name. Ring in Passover with a scoop of J.P. Licks's new flavor plus other dairy-free offerings like pink grapefruit sorbet.

Easter Eats:

L.A. Burdick
Whether it’s chocolate bunnies or chocolate mice that catch your fancy, this gourmet, handmade chocolate shop will indulge you. Their Easter assortment also features an egg collection. Expect surprises like apricot, black currant and raspberry fillings.

Sweet Bakery
The kids (and the young at heart) will be hoppy about “bunny ear cupcakes” from Sweet. Hop online and order your cupcakes, which can be made vegan and gluten-free. If you prefer a whole cake, the “jelly bean nest” is just as fun.

Royal Pastry Shop
Baked goods for Easter dinner are made fresh at this longtime, family-run bakery. For your chocolate fix, take a look at their array of Italian Easter eggs. Imported egg bundles come in spectacular decorative wrapping. 

Cardullo's
Spread the holiday spirit with gourmet Easter baskets. Cardullo's has you covered with a variety of chocolate bunnies and eggs too. Their shop is full of unique finds.
