Sweet Bakery in Chestnut Hill and Downtown Boston Are Closed; Exact Status of Latter Unknown

A group of bakeries and pastry shops that closed one of its locations earlier this year has closed its other two locations, and it remains a mystery as to whether one of the two might open back up again.

According to several sources, Sweet Bakery in Chestnut Hill and downtown Boston are both closed, with one source on the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook page indicating that Chill Sugar Co. is replacing the Chestnut Hill location while a few sources say that a "space available" sign is apparently posted out front at the Boston location. Earlier reports from sources indicated that the Boston shop was only closed for renovations and a Yelp page mentions that it is "temporarily closed" and is scheduled to reopen on May 31. The website for all locations gives no indication that the Chestnut Hill or Boston outlets have closed, and it also shows that the shop in Cambridge's Harvard Square that shuttered earlier this year is considered to be "closed for renovation." We have reached out to Sweet Bakery to find out more information on all of this, so keep checking back for updates.(The online business for Sweet Bakery remains in operation, as does its catering.)

The aforementioned Chill Sugar Co. is slated to open in the former Sweet Bakery space in Chestnut Hill this weekend, according to its Instagram page.
