So we stopped here for lunch on our way to a family event out of town. I had the weiner schnitzel Parisienne (with stewed apples and coleslaw) which was fantastic. Our server was young, a little nervous and very sweet. It was busy and there was only one server when we arrived (serving both sides of the restaurant) but it's a very friendly, clean and welcoming place. The owners are Swiss and the husband is a certified Swiss chef. The pies (baked on the premises using fresh fruit and little sugar) looked absolutely fantastic (so perfect that they could have been fake), so we decided to stop back the next day to pick up some pastries. We stopped in and there were gorgeous pecan pies all over the displays, as well as freshly baked danishes. The tarts caught our eye and I got a cherry one, the boyfriend got a raisin butter tart and a pecan tart. Oh, and I got a peach pie (which I will likely try it tonight, am hoping it's not as good as the cherry or I'm in trouble), which looks gorgeous and smells fantastic! It was still hot out of the oven when we got it. So the cherry tart? It was so deep and fantastic that the tartness of the (fresh!) cherries combines with the sweetness of the sugar and the perfect ratio pastry to fruit made me regret not buying a dozen! This place is an absolute food gem and I look forward to making excuses to come out this way (it's a gorgeous drive from Toronto) so we can eat here again!
