Gargantuan cranberry-potato-chip cookies; chewy marshmallow-filled oatmeal cream pies; big sweet (think blueberry) and savory (BLT) muffins; tender crumb cakes topped with fresh fruit; “breakfast” cookies with rolled oats, toasted walnuts, pineapple and dried fruit; cheesecakes with homemade graham cracker crusts; even quiche made with farm-fresh eggs.
Goodies galore abound at Pint Size Bakery & Coffee, a new from-scratch bakery launched by pastry chef Christy Augustin. Don’t let the name fool you: Even though the bakery is small, it churns out tons of treats, all made by hand each day with the highest-quality ingredients. If you know you want something specific, get there early because the popular shop does sell out – and it won’t hold anything over until the next day, so if it’s out, it’s out. Get your goods to go – there’s no seating – and be sure to grab a strong, steaming cup of Kaldi’s coffee too. Simple, honest ingredients go into the baked goods at Pint Size, and you can taste the dedication to quality in everything the bakery offers.
