We had fabulous coffee and pastries here. So many great pastries, cookies and yummy food to choose from! My only complaint is there were two counters for folks to stand and drink their coffee. Both counters were monopolized by two customers with a laptop computer and their backpacks spread over entire counter effectively preventing anyone else from using the counters.

I would recommend a no laptop policy to enhance the vibe of the cafe, encourage social connection between people. Many cafes are doing this with great success.

I look forward to coming back to this great cafe again!

Hey mack05482,

Thank you so much for your kind words about our tasty treats! We are sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with the counter arrangements. We appreciate your concern about laptops in the shop. We don't offer wifi and therefore don't have an official laptop policy as seating is limited and most people wander in and out. We look forward to seeing you in the bakery again soon.

Cheers,

Tart Baking Co.

Absolutely the best chocolate and ginger cookies ever. Croissants and meat and veggie pies are also excellent. You cannot go wrong here!

All we had was a power cookie and their gold decaf. The power cookie features a selection grains. The gold decaf made me forget it was decaf. A reviving experience. If you’re Northampton, make this bakery part of your destination.

Donut Wednesday is not to be missed. I've never been disappointed with any of my choices. Staff is excellent, friendly, efficient, make great pastries and coffees. Pretty much a stand up place or to go. No chairs.
