We shared a lemon tart, banana cream pie, and a almond cake with berries between us. The banana cream pie is to die for. It's filled with fresh cream, isn't too heavy or sweet, and is simply delicious. So light, it's almost healthy. OK I kid myself.

The lemon tart was amazing too. I believe it's only available in the summers. The blend of tangy and sweet was just right.

Finally, the almond cake with berries. I think it's a 'special' since it's not on their main menu.
Definitely try their teas as well. I got the iced sparkling tea. It was delicious. Not only was it fizzy, but it also had just the right amount of sugar, very subtle and certainly not too sweet. Perfect for a summer day.

Chomp Meter: Are you kidding me? I am ready to move to Rhode Island.
PS. You can also get pies from them for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Guaranteed to be a hit with the family.
PPS. Providence is about an hour's drive from Boston. There are other attractions in Providence if you feel guilty just going for dessert. Brown University is round the corner. Federal Hill (where pastiche is located) is supposed to have really good Italian restuarnts (that's next on my list). There's also a mega huge mall, the Providence Place Mall. It has almost every store imaginable ... and the only Nordstroms and Forever 21 in the area. Have I already mentioned that shopping is my other vice? :)
