The XXX chocolate layer cake.

If all goes according to plan, the ~BAKER & BANKER BAKERY~ should be opening on Sunday August 1st. The project is from husband-and-wife team Lori Baker and Jeff Banker, and is just around the corner from their restaurant. On the menu: Four Barrel drip coffee and espresso drinks, one or two daily sandwiches, and, of course, baked goods. Morning offerings will include scones, muffins, breakfast breads, and sticky buns, and bakery items will rotate daily and include layer cakes (such as the snickerdoodle cake), a variety of cookies, two to three types of cupcakes (like chocolate salted caramel), brownies, blondies, lemon bars, seasonal crostadas, individual panna cottas, and puddings. There will also be sweet and savory housemade breads available to go, from challah to cinnamon cherry swirl. Got a party coming up? Whole layer cakes may be ordered by 4pm one day prior to pickup. Hours will be Tue-Sun 9am-5pm. 1802 Bush St. at Octavia.
