Shemo is a well known patisserie that has managed to keep the quality of its products high in spite of its success.
The shop is lovely and the staff strives for helpfulness, though they do not always succeed.
I love the Florentine cookies, both kinds of them, they are just perfect. I have never found a Shemo cookie to be lacking no matter its kind, but the Florentine is IT for me.
Their cakes are very good as well, what I have tried I liked. I mean the very fancy B-day cakes that come out of the freezer. Wow is the word to look for.
The separate pastries they sell are nice but nothing to write home about (well they can’t all be perfect can they?).
One of my very favorite things to buy there are the Quiches. They are good! You can find spinach, mushroom, sweet potato and more. You purchase them frozen and they do need about 20 min in an oven or toaster oven before you can eat them but they are great.
I would love to hear what you think their best items are, feel free to leave comments.
