There was sadness in Bernal Heights when we learned that Miss Heather had to sell the Rock Candy Snack Shop on Cortland so she could spend more time caring for her mother.
But we are very happy to report that the store is in good hands, as it prepares to morph into the Little Bee Bake Shop — a project of Bernal Neighbor Stacie Pierce, who was, until quite recently, the pastry chef at Chez Panisse.
Here are the details from the Little Bee website:
Little Bee is so excited to be opening a shop in the Bernal Heights neighborhood of San Francisco!
Come over and visit us at 521 CortlandAvenue right after Labor Day.
The shop will be a family friendly place for neighbors to come and enjoy ice cream treats, fruit tarts, cookies, and cakes. Little Bee will also offer take home and bake cookie and tart doughs, special occasion cakes, cupcakes, candies and tarts. Aside from the ice cream, all dessert items will be made in house with locally sourced and organic ingredients and can be eaten in the shop or taken away and enjoyed while strolling through the neighborhood.
Click through to see a Little Bee sample menu, and get ready to give Neighbor Stacie a sweet welcome.
