French Patisserie in Waterloo
Every trip to Kitchener I try to take advantage of Sabletine (there's an accent over the first 'e') in Waterloo. Because Kitchener Waterloo has such an interesting town plan(?) I managed to take an hour to find the place the first time - 203King Street in KW has E/W/N/S and though I had the GPS I didn't have the E/W/N/S, postal code or the feminine instinct to ask for directions.
As the name suggests, it has French style pastries and breads, teas and cafe expresse. It also serves lunch. There are only three tables so it can be busy right at twelve and arriving at 2:30 on a winter Thursday there wasn't much lunch left. However, the rustic fruit tart is delicious - blueberries, elderberries?, cherries, not over sweet on a perfect puff pastry crust. The lemon tarts are wonderful. The cherry clafoutis tarts are also perfectly sweetened and yummy. I really enjoyed my tuna sandwich the first time (when I had planned to have lunch) and was tempted but resisted a roast butternut squash soup, too. I also stocked up on some dark chocolate almond bark and shortbread for Valentine's Day treats.
It also does catering and I have seen the amazing results - I only hope we can afford to have it do some of the food at our family reunion this summer.
