Anyone recommend a cafe/bakery that makes great savory tarts?

For many years we've brought Once Upon a Tart savory tarts out to the holiday family gathering in LI and they're always a hit. However, now that we have two little ones, we're finding it difficult to find time to get into the city on weekends. I've had no luck googling or searching the OB boards for recommendations so if anyone has a place they love in Brklyn Hts, DUMBO, Prospect Hts, Ft Greene, Park Slope, Boerum Hill or Carroll Gardens/CobbleHill area, please let me know.

happy holidays

      thanks for the tip, however, they are the first place we thought of and they evidently don't do them. We also checked marquet and cousin john's and no dice.

    2. You might want to check the french bakery on 9th st, between 5th and 6th ave (in PS). I'm not positive, but since they do both sweets and sandwiches they might be a good bet.

      1. I've gotten good savory tarts at Blue Apron in the past. They don't make them and I don't know whether they have them all the time but you might call and ask.

        1. There's a sweet little cafe called Parco on 7th Ave. b/w 14th & 15th (east side of st. next to Tost). They sell delicious quiches by the slice as well as whole ones and are quite reasonable (I believe the 14 inch one we bought a while back was $16).
