Welcome to Third Cliff Bakery where we make gourmet shortbread and other baked goods.

Third Cliff is a roving bakery -- you can find us at Boston-area farmers markets, rolling through town on Rosie the Trike, popping up at Boston Public Market and events throughout the Greater Boston area. We relish in being a part of the small food community in Boston and seek partnerships to bring new, exciting and delicious food to market. 

Third Cliff's food concept centers around baked goods that are simple but not basic, allowing fresh and unusual ingredients to shine through. At the Third Cliff Trike and area markets, we typically offer herb shortbread (rosemary, lemon-thyme, lavender, etc.) and maple-nut granola alongside rotating seasonal and locally-sourced items like Maine blueberry muffins, native peach hand pies, bourbon marshmallow s'mores and more. 

A new and rapidly growing area for Third Cliff is wholesome, nutritious breakfast baked goods. Items like whole wheat zucchini-spice muffins or red pepper and cheddar whole grain corn bread are a way to kick the day off with a healthy serving of whole grains. These items are available at several partner cafes (see the Find Us page for details) and we are bringing them to market for schools and institutions with the support of CommonWealth Kitchen.

Whether kicking off the day with a healthy muffin or sharing shortbread as a gift  I hope that you love Third Cliff products. I start (nearly) every day with a cup of coffee and a shortbread, and strongly believe that you should too.

Owner & Baker & Shortbread-lover



Third Cliff has been a labor of love and I am very grateful to my thoughtful, creative and supportive team who helped to get it off the ground: Paul and Susan Crowley for their guidance and support, Emily Belyea for her incredible web design and marketing savvy, Kelly Hansen for her beautiful product photos and all of my pre-launch taste testers for their feedback and support.
