About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Once Upon A Tart has been located in the same charming historic storefront for 28 years. We have a bakery on-site that makes everything from scratch and uses organic eggs and dairy products. Visitors who have come to the shop before will recognize the same delicious muffins, scones and biscotti that they love. We also carry at least four different varieties of sweet and savory tarts at all times.

On the weekends we spread our coffee and bakeshop across two storefronts. We also host private dining events customized for you and your guests.

The food was not good - I felt nauseated
It's like the place has a small kitchen and the burger I ate

Had brunch on a grey Sunday with two friends. Excellent summer fruit plate and incredible scones! One friend was very happy with her egg dish. Something for everyone. If you don't have time for table service there is a cafe next door where you can grab coffee and one of Once Upon a Tart's fabulous seasonal baked goods.

This was a wonderful experience. The food was perfect and atmosphere was great. My wife and I had a wonderful time. We love the concept of the pop up menus showcasing different female chefs each weekend. What a tremendous opportunity in the heart of Soho! The ambiance is perfect in every detail from outside welcome to table settings. The wait staff is courteous, welcoming and efficient. The whole vibe feels as though it is a nice place to work.

I was there for the first time last weekend to meet with Leila and Anthony from The Recipe Hunters. The dishes they selected to share from the recipes they've learned through their travels were delicious. My boyfriend absolutely loved the Lebanese Tabbouleh. This place is very quaint and cute. Love the decoration and ambiance. I will certainly go back!

Went for breakfast. BIG fluffy pancakes with strawberry compote (egg whites? Yeast?) that the husband couldn't finish, mushroom/spinach tart with a fried egg on top that I could. Also had a side of perfectly cooked bacon and very good coffee. Lovely French background music, very helpful & pleasant staff. Will definitely return.
