Location: 165 Tremont Street, Boston, MA Honestly, this place should be called thinking crap. Hands down, the worst Earl Grey I’ve ever tasted…and I’ve tasted plenty.

Location: 738 Cambridge St., East Cambridge, MA Having just moved to Boston, one of our explorations took us to the Royal Pastry Shop on Cambridge Street. We chose a very simple chocolate cupcake.

It’s the perfect spot for a giggly group of girls women to go … Continue reading
Location: 184 Lakeshore Road East Oakville, ON L6J I’m happy to announce that I have found possibly the best apple pie, ever. It exists at Black Forest Pastry Shop in Oakville and is only $12.99! After popping it into the oven for a few minutes, it came out flaky yet melted in the mouth. The … Continue reading
Location: 300 Hanover Street Boston, MA http://www.mikespastry.com Is it touristy? Yes. The woman behind the counter insisted that we take a plastic “Mike’s Pastry” bag for our box even though we had a bag we were going to put it into. Nothing like advertising by carrying their logo, right? Is it ridiculously crowded, ALL THE … Continue reading
