When Tim Maslow opened Ribelle, his first solo concept last fall, it was a boon to Brookline's Washington Square neighborhood. Now he's started brunch, and the sweet offerings are right on point.
These trendy little snacks are popping up in dive bars, on food trucks, and in upscale restaurant kitchens. Here are six of our favorite in and around Boston.
This spring, a sweet new food truck hit the streets: the Batch ice cream truck. Yup, this is the same small batch (get it?), high quality ice cream that burst out of Jamaica Plain's Crop Circle Kitchen in 2010 and has been winning awards—and fans—ever since.
It's a three day process to make this bread pudding, but each caramel-y, salty, creamy bite is worth it.
Coffee rolls are what would happen if a cinnamon roll, an apple cider donut, and a coffee cake had a baby. An enormous, super sugary baby. The version at Kane's is tops.
Union Square Donuts is definitely not a mom-and-pop doughnut joint. It's housed in Kitchen, Inc., the shared commercial cooking space in Union Square.

The staff, almost all of whom are wearing beanies and plaid, are friendly and look like they might just glaze doughnuts to the beat of Sam Cooke and French love songs even when they're not working.
What do you get when you transport the bold colors, inventive flavors, and exotic spices of the well-loved Cambridge restaurant Oleana into a cozy bakery and cafe? Sofra, the popular spot created by James Beard Award-winner Ana Sortun and 5-time "Best of Boston" pasty chef Maura Kilpatrick.
