Don’t go to Bread + Butter in the North End expecting cannoli or biscotti. This newcomer, co-owned by pastry chef Lee Napoli and a local restaurateur, features her baked goods, the Chocolee chocolates for which she is known (her shop bearing that name is in the South End), and her husband Peter’s soups, salads, and sandwiches. The pastry menu, she says, incorporates “the best from all the places I worked,” including a dark chocolate Grand Marnier cake from Maison Robert, and Rigo Jancsi cake, from the former Black Forest Cafe in Porter Square. Queen’s Pastry, a sweet-savory, yeasted breakfast item, is unique to Bread + Butter, and breakfast pizza is a nod to the neighborhood. George Howell coffee, house-made sparkling sodas, iced tea, and fresh juices complete the offerings.

One set of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooks outdoor seating and the Rose Kennedy Greenway, another faces Salem Street, where passersby can look at the chocolate station.

When she saw it, she says, “We just knew this was the spot.” Bread + Butter, 64 Cross St., North End, Boston, 617-248-6900, www.breadbutterboston.com.
