Made a detour to Richmond town for a break on our trip to the wildlife centre nearby, and was attracted by this cosy local bakery to stop for a snack. The setting, ambience and even counter service reminded us of the renowned Maid of Honour Bakery at Kew Garden of Richmond in London. Indeed, the two localities of the same name across the oceans bear amazing resemblance in their British sub-urban environment and feel.
To our delight, the bakery offered the Tassie specialty of scallop pie which we hastened to order one to try, and it was so delicious that we quickly went for another. As one reviewer pointed out, the pie was stuffed with some half a dozen scallops nicely matched with tasty curry cream. Indeed, the scallops were bigger and more fresh than those served at seafood restaurants we had tried.
Reasonably priced and relaxing in setting, the bakery is clearly popular in the local community and surely a place not to be missed if you are in the area.
