you can never go to Findlay Market without discovering something new. it’s true! our last visit during Mother’s Day weekend, was no exception.
Skirtz & Johnston Fine Pastries and Chocolates opened that weekend, and we happened upon their shiny, new shop while showing a couple of friends around. loaves of bread by the window caught our eye, as well as the plate of cookies and muffins on the counter. some bread samples invited visitors to taste what they had to offer. i got to try their mediterranean bread, but we bought a loaf of french white bread instead for later (which was yum by the way – toasted with a bit of butter).
cheeks craved for a cup of coffee, and we were told that they serve a specialty coffee designed by Coffee Emporium that pairs well with their pastries! cool! cheeks bought a cup and raved about it! before he knew it, he was given a small bag to take home. very sweet of them!
ofcourse we had to try a couple of pastries: a bearclaw and a raspberry danish. they were both very soft with just the right amount of filling. we all tore our share off of each one until all that was left were crumbs of flaky pastry mmm. we were too full from lunch to try anything more, but made a mental note to return on our next visit to the Market.
and we got some good news: Skirtz & Johnston is now serving lunch!
go check them out!
