Considering how important the oven is at Humble Pie, you'd think that anything coming out of it would be noteworthy. I made that assumption when I saw "cookie plate" on the dessert menu. But the cookies — lemon sugar, chocolate chip and pistachio, along with ginger biscotti, arranged on a plate with some grapes and sugared almonds — didn't dazzle me. Even though they were homemade, they were too tiny to have that chewiness that makes homemade cookies so good. I would've been happier with one big, fat, moist cookie.

But the Fuji apple crostada, a beautiful golden pastry baked around slices of tender fruit, was pretty good. And as strange as it sounds, so was the velvety olive oil gelato. Really, it was just a mild cream flavor — not too sugary, with barely a hint of olive oil flavor in the first spoonful.

Unfortunately, they are raising prices. Enojy it while you can. I heard several dollars for each pizza. Owner is probably trying to pay off his bills from his other failed adventure.

Great write up Michele! HP is pretty yummy and close to where we live. Its priced well enough to eat there quite often.

I will have to say that Mozza has a superior crust. I also dont find much relationship between the 2 types of crusts, both being very good in their own way.

My only wish is that when they designed the dining room it was a bit more refined. However if the current scheme keeps prices down.. Id much rather pay for food then for decoration!
