I have never been a big fan of tarts; they always seemed boring and nut-filled to me. But as I was buying a mattress I was happy to stumble upon Tartistry . There are not a lot of cute cafes in Etobicoke; yet alone one that can accommodate a nut allergy AND be gluten-free. They aren’t a nut-free facility; but I ate there without a problem.
The shop is a mixture of cafe and antique/knick-knack shop. It is as if your grandma put all of her cherished belongings on the wall – the kitsch and mismatching is a perfect setting! The owner is also a sweetheart.
The second time I visited Tartistry I planned my perfect high tea outfit to match the decor.
Blouse – Jacob (retails stores are sadly now closed)
Cardigan – Jacob Junior (also closed and bought at a vintage show)
Skirt – Forever21 (it has pockets!)
Fishnets from my collection
Pointed Nude Heels – Call it Spring
Note: All allergy sufferers know before you eat you must always ask about ingredients. Please take my reviews as information only; never forget to ask your server about ingredients before you eat. Happy nut-free snacking!
