Every once in awhile you come across off the beaten track gems.

July 23rd, 2013, 11am

It was 19.4°C with broken clouds. The breeze was light.

This young man, an accomplished baker and caterer, has been catering for quite some time and by using other peoples kitchen facilities. He recently decided to branch out on his own and rented this store front in South Oakland a rougher part of an already rough city.

His name escapes me at the moment, however, he decided to offer his specialty pastries and other breakfast/lunch items out of the front of his new catering kitchen.

For those of us lucky enough to stumble across this humble store front we get the opportunity to taste his creations.

I really enjoy seeing the pride in his eyes when he meets with a customer to discuss what’s available for the day. I hope more people discover this gem.

Thank you Wade for asking.
