Reader Restaurant Rater Martha Chiplis has high praise for tiny First Slice Pie Cafe, run by former North Pond chef Mary Ellen Diaz (pdf) as a retail arm of her organization First Slice, which provides gourmet meals to the homeless. Says Chiplis:
"I had the best sandwich I have experienced in recent memory at First Slice, the cafe at Lillstreet Art Center, this past Saturday. We happened to be walking past and decided to check it out. Wow, I was surprised and happy that we did. I had the goat cheese and pear sandwich, which also had roasted vegetables and was served warm like a panini. It came with a fresh green salad and potato chips. Being in Lillstreet, this place shares room with many art studios. Highly recommended. I didn't try the dessert--the pie is supposed to be amazing--but next time I will."
