Rosenfeld’s Bagels: Get ‘Em While They’re Hot

Rosenfeld’s is a Newton institution. For more than 40 years, this Jewish-style bakery has been churning out bagels, challah, and more from it’s tiny store front on the lower level of Newton Centre’s iconic Picadilly Square building. Their blueberry bagels run out fast, so get there early, and don’t forget their homemade cream cheese.

Deluxe Station Diner: Right Where You Need It

The ‘T’ Station in Newton Centre has been around since 1870, and has housed all manner of businesses. The Deluxe Station Diner is its current resident, and provides for commuters on their way into, and out of, the city. With decor that harkens back to the building’s Industrial Revolution roots, you can start your day with a coffee and a Breakfast Burrito, or cap it off on the way home with a Crabcake Dinner and a draft beer.

Coconut Cafe: Top Tier Thai

Coconut Cafe has been serving up Thai cuisine from this little location for almost 20 years. It may be small, but the ingredients are fresh, and the choices plentiful. Look for the “ped maak maak” for their spiciest creations. Wash it down with some fresh Thai iced tea, and try the custard with sweet rice for dessert.

Cafe Sol Azteca: A Very Hidden Gem

Make sure to keep an eye out for the sign, as the restaurant itself is down a tiny alley off of Union. While they are known for their patio seating during the summer, you can enjoy their authentic cuisine and drinks year-round. For a real taste of Old Mexico, try the Mole Poblano; chicken breast in a rich, spicy mole sauce. Don’t forget the sangria!

No. 1 Noodle House: All About Take Out

While its name is “Noodle House,” this little shop offers so much more, including classic appetizers like crab rangoon and scallion pankcakes; rice dishes, congee (rice porridge), and laksa (coconut milk and curry soup). Seating is limited, so your best bet is calling ahead for pick-up or delivery. Cold bubble tea makes for a great desert.
