I am vulnerable as the next poster to the thrall of first love under which my judgments can veer towards the overly generous. M.F.'s pastries and savory buns continue to delight me after repeated visits. I have added their strawberry tart to the raspberry almond croissant and brioche cheese bun to the list of favorites many have found so delicious. The tart has a thin layer of pistachio cream between the almond paste and the berries - the whole works in unison and is only lightly sweet.
I can't comment on the macs as I have never found anyone's for me. The chocolate cookies are nice with a sugar and salt rim, they found more favor with friends than with me.
I've yet to try the pound cakes.
