I came back from a shopping trip today to find Bryan dealing with a nice rush of customers so I jumped in to help, in between dragging cases of paper cups and cream cheese & such from the car into the shop. In the middle of this, a nice lady introduced herself and handed me a bag full of pastries, saying she'd been wanting to meet me & hoped we'd try her wares. Not one to pass up free pastries, I thanked her profusely (we've been needing a new baker for months now!) and said I'd be in touch. After getting through the line of customers and packing away the shopping items, we tried some scones, muffins & cake. Wow! It was delicious! Turns out the nice lady was Renée McLeod, of Petsi Pies. I called her back right away and placed an order for tomorrow! Yay! Finally, scones, muffins, cupcakes! We'll try some pies over the weekend. She's got some really yummy pies both sweet and savory. Can't wait!
You may know that our coffee beans are available in some local markets, but did you know that some restaurants are serving Mystic Coffee too? The latest is Carroll's Bar & Grill right in Medford Square! Carroll's is brand new and providing a much needed meeting and dining spot in The Square. We wish them all the best! And we love their coffee!
Also our dear friends at Bistro 5 in West Medford, who were of course early adopters of our Espresso Blend, Mystic Blend and South American Decaf Blend! They have opened a sister restaurant in the last year in Winchester called A Tavola. Both restaurants have a delightful atmosphere, fabulous menus and great coffee!
And in Melrose, Coffee Tea and Me not only sells some of our beans but serves our Sumatra, Ethiopian Sidamo and other specialty beans. We love their shop and their baristas are great!
