The other week my father finally went to Bakesale Betty on the corner of Telegraph and 51st Street in the Temescal area of Oakland. I have been raving about their fried chicken sandwiches, just like half of Oakland. My dad called me up told me what a great experience he had, which I thought I would share with you. My dad said that he told the people behind the counter that it was his first time in their shop and that I had recommended he try their addicting fried chicken sandwich with jalepeno and cabbage slaw. The person who was helping him was super friendly and gave my dad several sweets to sample while he waited for his sandwich. My dad went on to say that they sure do things the right way. Simple, friendly service!
I told my dad they are smart, by giving him a free cookie, they know that he will be back. Their bake goods are addicting, once you try it, you will be craving them.
Here's to all of the great Oakland businesses, the people who support them and all of the great aspects of our city! With all of the negativity there are MANY, MANY more positive things happening.
