DessertWe did carry-out from Fosdal's in Stoughton so we could sample their lunch fare. The menu was small but not short on options. Each of a half dozen kinds of sandwiches can be made with a choice of bread, roll, or croissant, a side of chips and a pickle - not a crispy, garlicky dill, but the softer, sweeter, more Scandinavian-style slice. And the service was very friendly and chatty, full of good recommendations.

The chicken salad croissant had good meat, very fresh lettuce and wasn't overloaded or soggy with filling. JM's pulled pork sandwich was serviceable, and while he wouldn't necessarily make a special trip for it,he felt like his choice of the small size was virtuous but ultimately regrettable.

The sweets were another story, and very worth a visit. The chocolate filled donut was dreamy and dense. A raspberry-filled sugar cookie managed to make a very simple idea interesting: the top of the cookie, exposed to more heat, was more firm, while the same dough underneath had been shielded by a layer of tangy raspberry jelly and was pillowy and soft.

We couldn't pass up a loaf of bread and a few hot dog buns. The traditional, soft white bread made excellent toast and the buns made us look forward to summer grilling season all the more.

The raspberry cookies sounds delicious! Will definitely have to try it when we're in the area.

Absolutely Wonderful bakery...went in to get A cookie for my Grandson, left with Bags of cookies, sweet rolls and some of the best breads, buns I've had in awhile, and at great prices. People were super friendly & helpful & everything I tried was delicious. What a "find"...only wish I lived closer.
