B.C. Baking Co. in Hyde Park's Readville Neighborhood Has Closed for Now; Future of the Place Is Unknown

One of Boston's most "hidden" food spots has shuttered, and it isn't known what might become of the place.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, B.C. Baking Co. in the Readville section of Hyde Park is closed for at least the time being, with a Facebook post from the Como Road spot saying the following:

As of January 1st, our family has decided to shut down the bakery for a little while. We are going to take this hiatus to regroup and figure out what’s in store for the future of BC Bakery. We love and appreciate all our customers and the community. You have become like family to us, so this was a very hard and ultimately sad decision to make, but it is what’s best for our family at the moment. We want to thank you for an AMAZING 45 years of business! I will post any updates or decisions that we make when we know. Happy and Healthy New Year! Love, Jimmy and the Mariano family

B.C. Baking Co., which resides in the middle of a residential neighborhood a few blocks east of the Dedham line, has been known over the years as a place to go for Italian pastries, cold cuts, pizza, bread, and more.

The address for B.C. Baking Co. is 27 Como Road, Hyde Park, MA, 02136.
