Omni Parker House
Billed as Boston's oldest and most storied hotel, this historic, 551-room landmark opened downtown in 1855 and lays claim to having hosted literature's legendary Saturday Club (Longfellow, Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes), inventing the Boston Cream Pie, and serving as ground zero for JFK's no-doubt-epic bachelor party.
You might be a bit confused as to why the historic hotel has made our list of the best pie shops. Well, turns out they’re the inventor of the famous Boston Cream Pie. Although technically a cake, the dessert has all the richness and sweet ingredients needed to get a pass. It also happens to be the official Massachusetts State Dessert. So whether you’re a local or a vacationer crossing off your Boston bucket list, it’s certainly worth a try. And if you’re reading this from afar, you can have the iconic pie shipped to your door through Goldbelly.
