Gazing upon the freshly baked cupcakes, cookies, pies and pastries displayed in the dessert case at the newly opened Montilio’s Baking Company in Weymouth’s Columbian Square is enough to make your mouth water. The new bakery and café, which took over a space previously occupied by Aroma Bakery, is the fourth Montilio’s location on the South Shore. The 67-year-old, family-owned bakery business is known for its delectable pastries as well as special occasion and wedding cakes.
“It’s a sweet story,” says owner George Montilio. “The owners of Aroma are great friends who plan to stay on with our company; our plan is just to expand the offerings of fine pastry, cakes, wedding cakes and other baked goods to customers.” 19 Union St., Weymouth, 781-335-1777, www.montilios.com
