    First to Review

    I had me a cravin' for something sweet like caramelized barley one day, so I stopped into this bakery for a bite.  The selection was not so entertaining - let's compare it to playing the piano.  If basic is hitting one key at a time, intermediate is playing chords, and advanced is adding in trills and staccato, this bakery plays C then D then E, no fancy trimmings.  

    A lot of the biscuits looked like large versions of the kind you find for buffet after religious services (or the kind I remember from my childhood) that are, say green and have a large maraschino cherry on top.  Nothing that ever made me shiver with tasty delight in my shoes.  There were also some mince pie squares.  I asked the lady at the counter (who smiled as much as a a elephant actually eats peanuts, but was still nice) if I should get a mince pie,  silver spoons for my soup, or one of those triangle bars of biscuit with I don't know what on stop.  I didn't quite phrase it like that, but she recommended the latter.

    So I got it.  I still don't know what it was, but from what I can deduce, it was a biscuit topped with dried fruit and held together with caramel-ish substance.  It wasn't amazing, but it hit the spot enough.  Say just to the right of the bulls eye circle.  

    The place is alright, but no French pastries.
