“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)!”
