It was a delicious undertaking. An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but a pear pastry in the morning is a boon to your mental health.

The $4 pear-and-blueberry tart is an artful balance of the two fruits. The slice is a large portion for breakfast, unless you are a pear-eating lumberjack or have the appetite of one.
