“Head toward downtown Northampton on the bike path (Manhan Rail Trail), then follow it north toward Florence (a neighborhood of Northampton that has its own small downtown). The Pie Bar features different sweet pies every day, as well as a selection of savory hand pies.”

“Tart has no seating—it's a take and go place—but the breads and pastries are top notch. Come early to pick up a breakfast pastry and some tea or coffee; later in the day you can choose from a selection of pies, tarts, macarons, and more. And note: if you buy a pound of coffee, you get a free cup of coffee to go (any size)!”
