Description

City Pages' Description

With all that the Midtown Global Market has to offer in the way of sweets, it might seem surprising that relative newcomer Salty Tart consistently has a crowd gazing through its glass cases. That is, until you realize James Beard Award nominee Michelle Gayer is behind this bustling, buttercream-laden bakery. Customers debate whether to buy stacks of perfectly rounded macaroons or the enormous flaky croissants to take home while eating large oatmeal/chocolate chip/sour cherry cookies on the spot. Ignore those who say cupcakes have gone the way of bacon as a food trend and order the white-chocolate lemon cupcake, top-heavy with sweet shavings that are balanced by a core of lemon curd that smarts on the tongue. And be sure to bring some of Gayer's glory home with you. Her rich take-and-bake chocolate brownies can secretly be passed off as your own.

    I've seen this place get good reviews. I thought it was only okay. Not the best desserts I've ever had, but if you're craving something chocolate, this place will hit the spot.

    Michelle Gayer-Nicholson is one of the most critically acclaimed chefs in MPLS. You really can't go wrong with any of her creations!

  • Food & Wine on 04/26/11

    Michelle Gayer's fantastic pedigree includes a pastry stint at the renowned Charlie Trotter's in Chicago; now she's turned her focus to rustic tarts, cakes and breakfast pastries.

  • City Pages on 12/07/12

    Voted Best Bakery by City Pages in 2012! This bakery has everything we're looking for: salty, savory, sweet, and just a little bit naughty. Michelle Gayer is a bad-ass chef, with some major chops."
