The sign attracted me first, with the slogan "sweet as pie" underneath. The window did not offer much of a view, which normally would make me hesitate to go inside.. But a customer was just leaving, looking very happy, and encouraged me. Inside was a case with wonderful tarts. We bought 6 different types, and all were excellent and large enough to split between two people (for taste sharing). The key lime tart was very tart, and lovely. The chocolate was a dark chocolate, not too sweet, and melted on the tongue. The pecan tart had nuts all the way to the bottom with just enough of that sweet jelly to hold it all together. The coconut cream was probably my least favorite, as the flavor was delicate compared with the others. All the crusts held together but didn't get soggy. (I admit it took us three days to eat through all the tarts we bought). Saving the best for last, the sour cherry half-pies or turnovers were the most amazing pastry I think I have ever eaten. They were definitely not that sticky overly-sweet cloying pie filling. Instead they were light and flaky and filled with real cherries. The sour of the fruit was perfectly balanced by the sweetness on the crust (large sugar crystals). Located just a couple storefronts away from State Street, please visit them often!
