Savoy had gone to you know where in a handbasket so i was thrilled to see this new bakery emerge in its place on beacon near St. Marys. It is pretty and has mostly jewish-style pastrys, heavy on the nuts, biscotti, cookies, light on the chocolate frosting type stuff, with lots of nice-looking 'morning' pastries. I tried a box of walnut cookies, both because i like them and they looked like they would represent the style of baking typical to the place. The cookies were 16.00 a box and the clerk couldn't tell me whether they were a pound or not, but my guess was about a pound. They were good but not great and, in my view, at that price they should have been dynamite. Think I'll stick with Athans, the rugelach from Rosies, and Watertown bakeries for my cookies but I'll probably go back and try the breakfast goodies. anybody else have a take on this place? Japonnaise, across the street, has excellent pastry but isn't a "cookie" place so this little place could really fill a niche. If you don't charge these prices, how do you survive Brookline rental rates? it seems a conundrum to me.
