  • I live in Boston, MA and come to Canada a lot as I also have a home here. I stopped by this place as I saw the Butter Tart sign and thought I will try one as we can't seem to find them in the states very much. I have to say, the were fantastic and now I go by there every time I am in town about 10 times a year and bring home 6 of them. All my friends are asking for them too. They are homemade and always delicious, can be frozen and they still taste as good. The staff are friendly and in season the flowers are gorgeous in front of the store. Nice to see an independent business doing so well. Don't miss this when visiting Niagara-on-the-Lake.

  • YUMM!!! Cherries were wonderful and the Tarts are excellent. I could eat both until I am sick, but I am pacing myself. If you are in the area STOP in.

  • My wife and I were at Trius Winery and we were hungry and only had 30 min to grab something. Looked up tripadvisor and this was a 1 min walk away. They have fresh fruit, chips, and a lot of healthier choices the ladies inside were very kind.

  • You have been warned. This nice little roadside store offers a selection of fruits, jams etc. But you are going for the butter tarts aren't you ?

    Remember - friends don't let friends car'n'tart. You can not eat these tarts while driving. You are going to get covered in delicious sticky butter tarty gooeyness. This is not driving appropriate.

    Otherwise a great little stop near NOTL.

  • Drive by this place on way to and from my daughters orthodontist. Only problem is they are only open on Tuesday's during the summer months! (Ortho appt on tues only). So finally got to try these tarts in June. My dad, who is a butter tart connoisseur, said these are up there in the top three of all time for him. I would probably agree :) I've now been back in July and August. Hoping they're still open on Tuesday's in September!

  • We recently moved to area and frequent the the Fruit Shack on a regular basis. Fresh fruit and vegetables throughout the season.

    Go to the freezers and try any of the frozen sausages.

    Cook right from frozen in 30 minutes---all are excellent!

    Butter tarts are fab!

  • Both the Lemon and the Butter Tarts are great. I am normally not a crust fan, but their crust is so flakey and it tastes even better! This is a MUST stop every time I am in the area. Stop in and try one or six if the delicious tarts, once you have you will email ahead to order them! Special note: Bring your cash or debit card as they don't take credit.

  • hey support not only their own farm but many other local businesses as well. Like all the other reviews have mentioned, the tarts are to die for! I love their kettle corn so much that I am unable to enjoy kettle corn from other places.

  • We recently ordered almost 100 butter tarts for our wedding in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We couldn't have been more pleased. Everyone who works here is beyond friendly. They look the time to package them just how we wanted and all of our guests raved and raved about how delicious they were. These truly are the best better tarts in the world. In addition, the staff couldn't be friendlier. Stop by for one or one hundred... you won't be disappointed.

  • I was in Niagara yesterday so I stopped in at the Fruit Shack in Virgil. Steve set me up with all my favourites...Butter Tarts, Kettle Corn and fresh in season asparagus!
    I was also able to check out the cherry and apple blossoms. The aroma was fantastic!
    Thanks Steve!

  • The most amazing butter tarts I have had in a very long time. The bar was set many years ago by my father, who's butter tarts were the gold standard. The butter tarts at the Fruit shack are a very very close second. Spectacular.
