Gourmet Garden: OctoberFeast Bakery revisited

rworange | Feb 27, 2012 04:50 PM

I finally tried the much acclaimed reaper bun. For me, it was one of the worst pastries I’ve ever put in my mouth. It was like a baklava mated with pastries made by an old German whore.

It was unappetizingly sweet, with a coarse, heavy, doughy texture and a top crusty with sugar.

OctoberFeast at one time had a few breakfast items and lunch sausages. The chalkboard menu was still on the wall but they have discontinued them.

I decided I really don’t like OctoberFeast that much for much. Most of it is just too heavy and dense but not in a good way.

The bakery also sells flour and bran.

There is a nice outdoor patio in back shared by the other nearby businesses plus a couple dreary indoor tables.
