In the Boston area (Brookline), I would recommend Clear Flour Bread on Thorndike Street.  On the Cape, I highly recommend a visit to PB Boulangerie Bistro in South Wellfleet.

You "must" have the Canolli, they're the best.  Try the Tiramisu as well.

Another good bakery on the Cape is Pain D'Avignon in Hyannis.

45 minutes out of Boston in Millbury a great bakery that makes sourdough, focaccians, multigrains, chunky cheese to name a few.  Also, NY boiled bagels, danish, cakes and tarts.  Call ahead though because sometimes they are out of the breads. They also have great breakfasts and lunches.  Everything is homemade from scratch.

I don't buy bread much in bakeries since I prefer to make it myself, but I make an exception for Hi Rise Bread Company on Concord Ave in Cambridge.   I buy stuff from them and then try to figure out how to make it.   They sell at farmer's markets in the area, so I haven't been to their bakery in awhile, but I'm pretty sure they have tables and breakfast and lunch as well.   -Varda

Thank you everyone for the recommendations.  Good bakeries are hard to find here at home, unless we are talking biscuits.  I will check some of them out.

I'd put in a strong second vote for Clear Flour Bakery; it has a really excellent variety of artisan breads, scones, and tarts! As for Italian pastries, I'd recommend Modern Pastry if you want to get something to take out, or Caffe Victtoria if you'd like to sit down and relax.
