Who says you have to quit your day job or plan for growth? No one. I recently inhaled the most buttery scone I’ve ever experienced and chatted for a while with Shawn Walker-Smith, whose Tart! Bakery the East Bay Express newspaper profiled (along with this lovely photo I snapped).
He loves baking and is making extra money on the side…of his job at a bakery. The cost of getting licensed didn’t deter him. So if he decides to expand, he’s all set.
Sweet. Simple. The new-ish Arbor Cafe that’s lucky enough to carry his scones is also lucky enough to have an attraction to draw in customers…aside from their great local Bicycle coffee.
