I got my haircut this morning on Harvard. St. so I figured I would stop by Pastry Land N'More and see if they are done with rennovations. I walk in, and the place is totally different. It's like a take-out restaurant. There was no bakery items just looked like a cafeteria almost. They were serving some people lunch, and there was only a kid working there, so I didn't bother to ask. Has anyone talked to the owner recently? Has he sold it to someone? Or has he changed the business? The sign still says Pastry Land n' More so I assumed it was still a bakery-but it is def. not. Maybe they moved? Let me know if you hear anything!

Does anyone have any information on this business? Is it still operating as peanut/nut free? We are heading out there for the holidays and I was hoping to check it out.
On a side note, Miriam (if you are still here), my dh grew up in Newton--small world isn't it? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

jage512,
When I stopped by there during the renovations all the posters from the bakery were still in the windows. There were several taped to the glass to the right side of the door that said "peanut free bakery" Did you notice if these are still there? Were the other posters there too? (The glass store front was pretty filled with posters then.)

Tando-
There were no posters on the windows. There were some notices (regular paper size) that explained that they will be open for business on Saturday nights from now on and explained that they have been certified kosher for their meat and other products (because they seem to be serving real food now so I assume they need different type of certification than they previously had). There was no mention of a peanut-free bakery or anything. When I walked in I questioned myself because I wasn't sure if I even walked in the right store. But as I left, I looked up to the sign and it still said "Pastry Land N' More".... hence my confusion. I am now home in CT so won't be able to go check again myself but if anyone hears anything let me know......

Thanks for the info. Newton's a special trip for me from the western burbs (not as far as for you), so I'm not sure when I'll be able to get there by myself. Last time I took DS with me and he was very disappointed to find the bakery closed for renovations.
I hope the place is under the same ownership. If the bakery was nut free because of the baker's own allergy, I'm hoping any other restaurant would be as well. We can always hope...

Do any of you Bostonians have any updated information on the situation? I lived in Boston for 12 years so I'm familiar with Harvard St. and we frequently go back to the area to visit friends, etc. Would love to know what this place has now and if they are worth a stop if we are in the area.

Hello! Please do not call 617-278-2400 unless you are looking for electric guitars, basses, whathaveyou. Unfortunately Pastry Land no longer has that number.
Thanks!
