Since it opened in 2015, Blackbird Doughnuts has been a hit in the South End! They make unique gourmet doughnuts from scratch in a small storefront on Tremont Street. All of their doughnuts are baked on site, and they play around with both classic combinations and off-the-wall concoctions of their own making! They use brioche dough, which makes for light and fluffy doughnuts which are then topped with house-made glazes and frostings. They also offer made to order ice cream doughnut sandwiches that are a hit in the warmer months. Their current doughnut flavors include options like Boston Cream Bismarck, Blackberry Currant, and the Everything Bagel Doughnut. Check their website for their full list of up-to-date flavors.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Boston Marathon is just a few days away and the city is buzzing as travelers and runners begin to arrive. The bleachers and finish line tents are being installed in Copley Square and there’s plenty of excitement in the city.

- “Out of the way feeling while in the center of everything! Extending our stay in Boston at the end of a conference for the weekend, we moved from a conference hotel to the delightful Inn at St Botolph. The hotel's location is really optimal - within walking distance of so many great attractions. Around the corner we took in the observation deck of the Prudential Building, visited Copley Square, and took a duck tour. Within a few short blocks we also found wonderful dining at Kitchen and a show at Speakeasy Theatre. It was an ideal location.
Last night we enjoyed a progressive tasting with DAVIDsTEA here at the Inn. Guests joined us to sample teas and to take a mini tour of the Inn.
In room 401, our Two Bedroom Executive Suite, there were displays with some of the seasons newest product from DAVIDsTEA and knowledgable staff on hand to answer all guest's questions. Down the hall Nick from DAVIDsTEA offered black and rooibus tea for sampling.
In Room 301, guests learned and tasted three different varieties of green tea. To pair with the tea, delicious treats like chocolate dipped macaroon cookies and sandwich jam cookies from Mooo Restaurant, were available. The staff from DAVIDsTEA were incredibly passionate and knowledgable and we learned a lot in one evening. Thank you to everyone who joined us!
