After reading the great reviews of Lehto's we were disappointed in the pastys. The crust was really good, unfortunately the fillings were not so good. I don't know what we were expecting, but this was not it.

Great pasties. Nice shop. Clean friendly. I wish they sold beer. They only have outside dining or carry out. The pasties really are the best around. Can’t say enough about them.

This is a classic,,,when you do something right stick to what you know. The menu board includes Pasties - hot, cold, or frozen and gravy. That's all! It reminds me of the cheeseburger cheeseburger skit. This spot has been doing pasties for 75 years and...More

The crust is quite flakey, almost like a pie crust, and the filling is, to my taste, perfectly spiced. One pasty can really feed two people and I prefer mine with ketchup instead of gravy.

We stopped at 2 different places and they were closed and I really wanted a pastie - we found this place and I grabbed 1 beef and 1 chicken. My husband said the beef was good, I didn’t like the chicken at all. Besides being...More
