I tried doing a search but I kept getting an error message. Anyhow, anyone been to Biscuits in Cambridge/Somerville, whatever part it's in. I was biking on my way to Union Square and passed it and wondered what it was like.

    It's called the Biscuit, fka Toscanini's. Decent enough baked goods, but in the same general area, I'd much rather hit Sherman, Petsi Pies, or Crema.

      I adore the fruit tarts at the Biscuit, or maybe they're called fruit squares - I can't quite remember. The savory breakfast tarts are also good - especially the roasted tomato and feta. The havarti and dill scone is a bit moister than Petsi's down the road, but I like that. The pizza is not at all good, but overall, a really great place for some baked goods.
