Best breads on Cape Ann and beyond. The olive twig bread and baguettes are exceptional. The rye bread (Fridays only) is just amazing. The scones and cookies are a wonderful treat. The owners are warm and friendly, the service is great! Can't say enough.

Delicious bread, scones, oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies. Alexandra's doesn't have a huge selection but what they offer is made fresh, and when they are sold out, they close. In addition to the lovely food offerings they have they also have a unique shop of...More
