“Not the Best Butter tarts or service”
Review of Dar's Delights

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Dar’s Bakery

Dar’s has 2 very well-known reputations.
1) They are known for having amazing baked goods and the best butter tarts.
2) That the owner is a little….. “difficult” shall we say? In fact Rude, miserable, mean, cranky are all adjectives you hear.

Now, I love butter tarts, and am always on a quest for the best butter tarts around : the “butter tart quest”. So, when I heard Dar’s had ‘the best’, I had to try them.
Let’s just say that the reputation #1 is not completely accurate. The butter tarts are flavourless, dull, unexciting, and bland. The crust to filling ratio is perfect - a smallish crust with lots of filling. The way a good butter tart should be. The filling is thick, with very little ooze. They lack the decadence that one expects from a really good butter tart. There wasn’t that gooey sweetness, they were not very sweet at all. The crust is flaky and flavourless. Absolutely nothing special about the crust.

Reputation # 2: yes, that one seems to be a truth. There is definitely a lack of customer service here. She may have a reputation for making amazing baked goods, and feels she can rest on her laurels, but unfortunately, I was not impressed with the butter tarts that I hear so much about.

Freshly made donuts rolled in cinnamon, FABULOUS pies, home canning of all kinds (pickles, relishes, jams etc etc. Fresh bread... small shop but WOW well worth stopping in - every day if you could manage it!!!!!!!!!!

I’ll admit it.
I’m a newcomer to butter tarts (only an occasional visitor to Canada).
However, have sampled a few on this trip and Dar’s were THE BEST.
No other butter tarts come close in terms of pastry and filling.
On a scale of 1 to 10 Dar’s are a 12!

Cheers

The best pies ever. I like the apple, others in the family love the mixed berry & peach, and others like the banana cream. So when we go, we have to buy a min of 3 pies. The people that complain about the customer service should look at it as the idiosyncrasy of the owner and have a chuckle. After all, you are only in the store for a few minutes, and take home the pies, not the owner.

The baked goods are great. Old fashioned home made donuts and seriously out of the oven pies. Great prices too. However the lady on the til had the worst customer service skills - hopefully she was just having one of those days.
