One day I was on my way to a movie at the AMC movie theatre on Bay Street in Emeryville, and I decided to skip the Red Vines from the concession stand and try a cookie from Teacake Bake Shop across the street. I made a great choice!
I don't know if I should be promoting this business, as the treats here could be addictive! You can buy freshly baked cookies and cupcakes made with fresh ingredients, baked all throughout the day. With choices like chocolate cookies with no nuts and pink velvet cupcakes, it can seem as if every option is calling your name. If you read this blog and put Teacake's on your to-do list, try to go on a Thursday, as the cookie of the day is a Pecan Praline. Unbelievable! Besides flavorful moist cookies, you have to love the pink and chocolate brown shop that is as clean as a whistle. A platter of cupcakes is a great alternative to birthday cakes, my daughter Nia asked for a box of pink velvet cupcakes for her birthday. With no forks or plates needed, I plan on ordering cupcakes for my next party. Visit Teacakes at, www.TeacakeBakeShop,com. Cookies are $2 each and cupcakes are $3; oh, if you decide to try a sampler bag of 4 day old cookies the cost is $7.
If you are having a craving for treat and you are in North Berkeley, stop by Love At First Bite. Located in Walnut Square in the Gourmet Ghetto. All I can say is try the PB Affair cupcake, a chocolate cupcake with REAL peanut butter frosting.
