One of Boyfriend’s favorite places to eat at Metrotown when working is a little bakery called Manzano.
The usual suspects are here, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, pastries, etc. Aside from those, they also bake specialty breads and makes sandwiches from scratch. That’s what Boyfriend likes to get but they’re a bit pricey…$6 each approximately.
Well I was waiting for Boyfriend to get off work and when he did, he took me there. We got a Strawberry Shortbread Cookie (above) and a Pear Tart.
The cookie was pretty good. Expensive though, around $1.50. It was pretty big, however.
The Pear Tart was really good, so good that I finished and forgot to take a picture. It was flaky and it seems to have a shortbready crust.
