I hesitate to write this as this is my favorite secret to impress but... Party Favors is tucked away in the shops that line Beacon Street in Coolidge Corner. They have every party doo-dad you would ever want: balloons, favors, gift wrap, stickers, candies, gift bags, everything.
However, the bakery in this store is fantastic. The cakes are decorated perfectly and always in season. The cake recipe and icing is also great. There are cookies and cupcakes that are equally as impressive.
Next time you need a birthday cake? Look no further and head to Party Favors. (Order ahead for custom cakes.)
Check their hours before you go - the hours can vary.
There is little street parking, but there is a metered lot with lots of spaces directly behind the store with a walkway that is directly next to the store.
