5 years on Fifth Street! Happy Anniversary to Us (an an announcement!)
Tomorrow will be our fifth year on 5th Street in Oakland! We first opened our doors on March 23, 2016 and wow it has been such a wild ride! I have grown so much, learned so much, made so many mistakes, and am so thankful for all of the wonderful employees I’ve worked with over the years and all of the lovely customers who have continued to support us through SO MUCH. You all have helped us come through the pandemic thus far going strong!
We will be celebrating all week! Watch our Instagram page for giveaways and special offers for the next 5 days!
First up: The Anniversary Gift Box
We’re starting with a special anniversary gift box for sale through our online store - The Anniversary Box includes all of our best selling items PLUS our anniversary cupcake, Gingerbread Marscapone, to celebrate our location in the former Gingerbread House building. This gift box includes 4 cupcakes (Meyer Lemon Cream, Red Velvet, Chocolate Salted Caramel, Gingerbread Marscapone, two chocolate chip cookies, a cheesecake bar, and a piece of Rosemary shortbread. This gift box is available only online, but you can get the individual items by walking in to the shop. Available this week only!
AND - Thanks to all of your support, and some of the COVID loans we were able to get, we are going to be converting an office in the bakery to a food prep room! We want to be more COVID safe and we need more capacity! We’re coordinating the work now, and hope to have it done this spring so we have increased capacity for all of the events that will start happening this summer and fall (fingers crossed!!). We’ll post more details when we have them.
