How delicious do they look? Last Saturday I finally visited By Blackbird to sample their pastries after hearing so much about them, and I was not disappointed. When you walk through the door an incredible aroma of freshly baked sweet pastry hits you straight away, so even if you're not hungry (which I was) you simply can't wait to eat something. My mum and I went around 9:30 in the morning and it was relatively quiet when we arrived, but since it's a small shop it filled up pretty quickly.
We decided to share three pastries between the two of us: baked pear pastry, almond croissant and the chocolate croissant.
