Tart Baking Company

Like many locals, we were sad to see Bakery Normand close. It was a great little place to get brioche. We took our time, almost out of mourning, before we tried Tart. Now we wish we’d gotten there sooner. The pastries here are spot on. Molly is thrilled to see savory hand pies, and I’m pretty stoked to have knish back in my life. The greatest discovery from this joint though is espresso + tonic. I know, I was skeptical at first too. Lemon tonic no less, but after the shock of the first sip we were both hooked.
