Athan's bakery is a cute spot in Washington square. It's great for coffee and dessert, if you're ever in the area. They are self described as a European bakery & chocolatier.
Athan's has a nice selection of baked goods, gelato, and store-made chocolates. For desserts, they have a wide selection of cookies, cakes, pastries, and other fun things like baklava. The service in this store is a little strange; none of the items are self-serve, and they usually have about 2 people behind the counter who will move around the bakery and get you your items.

|Athan's also crafts their own chocolates!|
Anyways, I'm pretty gross so I ate it anyway, and it was delicious. The macaroons at Athan's are probably my favorite baked item in the Boston area.
