Madeleine & Render

Nothing prompts a blogger to go back and finally make a post about those beloved Boston coffee shops like running out of space on her external hard drive.  Out with the old and in with the new!

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while, you've probably seen a few posts from THIS bakery. Café Madeleine has some legitimate flaky, buttery, feels-like-you're-in-Paris croissants. They're also very Parisian in that they take a month long vacation in the summer. Unsurprisingly, they also have some stellar American sweets- hello brownies and chocolate chip cookies. Their c.c. cookies are the best, and I'm planning on replicating them in my kitchen...when it's not sweltering hot {90 degrees + no air conditioner + baking = NO}!

One thing I didn't like was their coffee.  Luckily, one of the best coffee shops in Boston is just a few shops down the street.  Render serves some of my favorite local coffees- Tandem and Gracenote.

I think I also love Render for sentimental reasons.  Some of my favorite pictures were taken there.

If only Render and Café Madeleine would team up and serve each others goods, that would be great! 

Have you visited either place? What do you think about the shops?
