Popped into Tart following a friends recommendation... just fantastic! I arrived just in time for a fresh batch of pizza and grabbed a few sweet treats. Everything was delicious - just wish we had a Tart in Brisbane :)

Vegan bakery to die for. I have never been to a totally vegan bakery before so this was such a delightful find. The food was exceptional and the staff were lovely. Will be back!
