Organic food indeed. The pastry used for these 'organic' pie delights is Pampas, which is commercial, toxic and chemical filled, GMO crud.

No pretentiousness, friendly service and comfortable, casual "old-style" atmosphere. All baking is done on the premises and the raspberry and pear tea cake was moist and delicious. We had afternoon tea and enjoyed the overall relaxed ambience in one of the main streets away from...More
