C R AVAT T S writer bakeries are irresistible because they conjure up the smells and tastes of childhood — butter, sugar, silken icings, dense chocolate — and tantalize us with the visual appeal of pastries, bars, cookies, and cakes. Susu Bakery Boutique & Café on Washington Street in Wellesley Square (at the corner of Church Street) is just such a place, and has, under the watchful eye of chef/proprietor Susu Aylward, been offering these temptations since 2000. Aylward, a former advertising executive and Paris-trained cook, opened the expansive, ele- gant space 15 years ago, initially enlisting her parents to help staff the kitchen. Now, Susu Bakery occupies two rooms: an intimate entry space where pastries are displayed and orders are taken; and an adjoining, high-ceilinged, chandeliered, and extravagantly-large and elegantly- furnished room. Here 50 patrons can sit and leisurely enjoy pastries, espresso, and now, in an imaginative twist on the bakery experience, live entertainment on Friday nights typically beginning at 6:00 pm with two sets beginning at 6:30 pm.
