What I ate:
  • 7/10
  • The texture of the financier was really good – dense yet not too heavy
  • It was a tad on the sweeter side
  • Nothing memorable about it
Chocolate Tart
  • 7/10
  • The crust was great – nice and crunchy – but a tad too sweet
  • The chocolate filling was very smooth – perfect sweetness
  • There’s a kind of paste on the inside which I have forgotten what it is now, but it didn’t add anything to the tart texturally or flavour wise
St. Honor
  • 8/10
  • Why would I recommend this yet only give it an 8 because it was too small for the price
  • The cream was very light – could have used more vanilla bean in it
  • The choux pastry was very light
  • The small little puffs on top were really good – top had crunchiness to it from the caramel
  • Just the right sweetness for me
Goat Cheese Scone
  • 7/10
  • The goat cheese flavour was not very strong which was disappointing
  • The scone, texturally, was on the denser side – could have been more flaky
  • There were bits of apple in it that added a nice sweetness and crunch to the scone
  • 7/10
  • The beans itself were really robust and very fragrant
  • Unfortunately the cappuccino wasn’t very well made
  • The top layer of foam was not stiff enough
Summary: The baked goods are all pretty good but nothing outstanding. I want to come back and try their sandwiches and soups
