In honor of National Donut Day, we take a trip down memory lane to the old school bakeries of South Boston. There was Hayden’s (later Mother Hubbard’s) at the corner of N and Fourth. Klem’s at H and Broadway. And we can’t forget Argus’ Bakery on East Eighth Street. They had the most delicious coffee rolls and Irish Bread. My nana would go after Mass on Sundays, wait in line, and bring back a little bit of heaven! It was a good day if you had an Argus’ coffee roll!
There were many more also – Alice’s Bakery also on East Eighth. Mae’s – known for their doughnuts. Another favorite we were reminded of – Green Freedmans! Joseph’s Bakery at the corner of K and Fourth has been in business for over 50 years!
Which ones do you miss?
