Outstanding cookies, soups, quiche. Owners are surprisingly unfriendly for a small local business. If you forget it’s cash only or ask for a cup of water (instead of buying a bottle) you get the stink eye. But they do make yummy stuff so it’s sometimes...More

Love this place. Delicious in every category:soups, salads, sandwiches, quiches, prepared dinners (all home made and fresh) and especially desserts! Custom orders for occasions are wonderful. Also great coffee and muffins or scones. Wish they were opened for dinner!!

The owners work so hard at making the best tasty pastries, soups, salads, sandwiches that we're lucky to have them in our town. Give them a break about (not) smiling~ they're probably up at the crack of dawn so their customers will enjoy every morsel....More

I've had lunch at Acorns almost 100 times (or it feels that way). I get the soup and half sandwich and I think I'm addicted to Stacy's bread. The place is something special. It's like that Seinfeld episode ... you wonder what's really in this...More

You can't go wrong,at this bakery--every item is made to perfection! Hands down the best bakery in all of Wellesley, Dover, Needham, Norwood and Dedham. The food is simply superb, the atmosphere cozy, with a few small tables, and nostalgic decor. Favorites: Croissants and downtowners.

We went here just a few minutes before they closed at 2 pm on a Saturday. They were not bending over backwards to serve us, but still did. I had a chicken salad sandwich and what was remarkable was not the filling but the bread....More

After moving to the west coast 2 years ago, we had to go to Acorns Bakery for their croissants the first day back in Needham. They are still the best! Thank you Stacy and Bill.
