First Look at Village Tart, Serving Late-Night Wine and Pastries Next Week


When Village Tart steps out of soft-opening mode next week, the full-service café will serve food from 7 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Wednesday, and until 2 a.m. on Thursday and Friday. The actual opening date isn’t firm, as owner Lesly Bernard is holding out for a beer-and-wine license. The meticulous design — combining dark wood, a pressed-tin ceiling, and walls of antique mirrors — almost makes up for the endless delays leading up to the debut. Until then, grab pastries and snacks to go from a counter area from 4 to 7 p.m. daily and admire the old-time space in our slideshow.
