Start your treat-filled trail with a macaron (fancy French for “super yummy cookie") at Ellie’s Bakery. For a real sugar high, wash it down with their spicy hot chocolate.

Sit outside and bask in the sunshine with a fluffy pastry from Olga’s Cup and Saucer. If you have the kiddos in tow, it’s just a block from the Providence Children’s Museum.
